I have studied dance since age three, fostering a deep appreciation for my body and the movement it's capable of. My fondness for movement developed into a love of yoga, and in December 2019, I completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training. In the fall of 2020 I became a trauma-informed yoga instructor and today my dance and movement work focuses on the connection between mind and body. I am a contemporary dance performing artist and holistic and whole-bodied ballet educator. I am intrigued by how the body can move in the most comfortable and natural way, and my current class offerings focus on connecting my research surrounding trauma and the body to real-life practices. I aim to offer a safe space for one to feel joy and appreciate their abilities.
Aside from dance and yoga, things that bring me joy include hiking, swimming in the ocean, sharing home-cooked meals with friends, and attending live-music gigs. I grew up on the Jersey Shore and briefly lived in Boston before moving to San Francisco in August 2021. I've found a wonderful community here in California, and I'm grateful for the lovely people I know on both coasts.
In addition to my experience in dance and the arts, I write in my spare time and have worked as both an editorial assistant and a music journalist.

In 2020, following my trauma-informed training, I designed a six-week class series titled Yoga for Healing. I first taught this course online, and I'm excited to bring the course to San Francisco in person in February. Prior to the course, I'll be offering a free Yoga for Healing workshop as a part of ODC Month for Dancers' Health. You can RSVP to my workshop here.

In early 2023, I'll officially launch my newsletter Triple M on Substack. Triple M is a platform for my musings, meditations, and other miscellaneous writing. My writing most frequently explores my relationship with the world around me and my spirituality. I'm trying to make sense of things in my life and in my writing, and I invite you to join me as I look for meaning in the mundane and make magic of the everyday.
