I’m a proud millennial, Chicago resident, California native, yoga teacher, engineer, foodie, wife and feminist. That’s right. A little unconventional but isn’t that the beauty of it? Last fall I left my corporate job to teach yoga full time, and within the span of three weeks I had a career change, got married, and finished home renovations/moved. It was such a whirlwind that I didn’t have time to process any of it in the moment, but fast forward past the election and the new year and I’m finally settling into my new life. I realized what was missing was an outlet to discuss the things I’m passionate about and to find a way to become a more active part of my community and the world more broadly.

In sharing this vision with others I received such enthusiastic feedback that I decided to start Almonds + Asana, a space for sharing health, wellness, and activists tips and experiences with a female bend. My aim is to create a place where learning about ourselves and other women through food, fitness and feminism helps us to become better citizens. If we all just choose to take a few small steps towards making our communities and world a little better, the total change could be monumental. I hope you join me in this journey!

I have a BS & MS in Information Engineering & Management from Southern Methodist University, five years of corporate experience working in Supply Chain & Shopper Marketing at PepsiCo, and am 200HR RYT certified through Bare Feet Power Yoga
