Growing up in a tiny town on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, home has always been in nature. The Great Lakes are in my blood, pine trees in my soul, and vast wilderness in my heart.
Like most Americans, post high school I went straight to college. Bay de Noc Community and then Western Michigan University graduating in 2014 with a Bachelors in Marketing and International business, moving to Grand Rapids, MI to start my career in corporate brand management.
The summer of 2017 brought the need for a refresh and self discovery. I quit my job, took a writing class, bought a camera, started a blog and bought a one way ticket to New Zealand on a Working Holiday Visa. Here I purchased a 1997 Honda CRV, converted it into a camper car and went between car living/ traveling and bartending/serving tables. In the quaint village of Hanmer Springs, with a permanent residence of just 800 people, I found infinite love for myself, for yoga, and for the world around me.
Come June of 2018 I moved to Fort Collins, CO to obtain a 200hr RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) certification, moving back to my tiny home town for the first time in 6 years that Fall. Here I spent four months 60 miles from the nearest yoga studio, seeing a need and demand for the industry I love most. Here I created a “Build Your Own Flow” four part work shop and began teaching all who were interested from the ground up. Along with drop in classes and chair yoga at the Senior Citizens Center I feel so honored to have had the opportunity to begin my new career at my roots.
Now? I document my journey around our unique planet through photos and words. Sharing my passion for love and light and wellness wherever I go. Perpetual curiosity is not an annoyance, it is not a burden, it is a gift and a means of education and connection.
