"My goal when teaching yoga is to create a safe space and allow time for students to explore being 'in' their body"
What are you passionate about?
I love learning! I enjoy being a beginner and am always open to new possibilities and new friendships. Currently I'm learning how to play golf. It's so fun and deeply challenging at the same time.
What keeps you busy these days?
Besides being a full time yoga teacher with many weekly classes and many privates...Body Of Wisdom Yoga keeps me very busy! I do all the filming, editing, marketing and social media. And, I love it!
How did yoga come into your life and what has that journey been like for you?
I was initially drawn to yoga as a means of stretching out a very tight body from years of competitive triathlon racing and long distance running. the first class I ever took was hot yoga and it 'kicked my ass'. I was hooked. I practiced 5-7 days a week for a long time and began to realize the mental benefits far outweighed the physical.
The journey has been rewarding and my life's passion is to bring the gift of yoga to as many individuals as I can.
Through the platform I am hoping to spread those yoga wings wider!

What is your background? Where are you from?
Born in Montreal, Quebec, I grew up on a horse farm in Ontario, northwest of Toronto. Life in my teens was riding, taking care of the barn and horses, basketball, volleyball and track.
I entered a local beauty pageant and won which brought me to Miss Canada and second place. I was Miss World Canada 1985 and competed in the Miss World Pageant in England that year. This kickstarted my career as a model which brought me to Chicago in 1988.
I am blessed with two amazing adult children, a loving boyfriend, very supportive family, wonderful friendships, and a dog and cat.
