I started teaching fitness classes in 2003, doing step aerobics and kickboxing at the University of Washington IMA.  After a move to Portland, I discovered Nia and was a quick convert.  I completed my white belt in 2006 and since then I have been teaching Nia with ever increasing joy!  I am currently a black belt level Nia teacher, and in 2017 I completed my Moving To Heal apprenticeship.  I am also a student of modern dance and yoga.  When I'm not on the dance floor, I work as a biomedical researcher studying neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and ALS.  It is my great privilege to help people of all types find healing and joy through Nia.
