I have a lust for life, and am constantly seeking out new experiences. I love to travel! When I'm home, I teach Pilates, operate a Pilates studio that I own, write in my blog and try to teach people how to feel better in their bodies through better posture and movement. I feel fortunate that I find my work meaningful and significant, and that I enjoy it immensely.
I live with my husband, Greg, and our son, Desmond.
Our home is our sanctuary- we love it! We look out onto Redwood trees every morning when we have our coffee and breakfast, and are entertained by the antics of a few squirrels that scuttle around eating figs from a nearby tree. Our neighborhood is amazing- we have great neighbors, a gorgeous neighborhood, full of Craftsman style homes, cafes, restaurants...anything one could possibly desire.
