Why I chose a career in Fitness: In 2008 I tore my ACL, MCL, and meniscus which brought me to my first yoga class to gain balance, strength and flexibility. In 2012 my best friend passed away and yoga welcomed me back with open arms. I specialize in Yoga for athletes/healing from injury but my true passion is teaching to help heal those who are grieving or experiencing mental and/or emotional turmoil. I ask myself: "How are you feeling?" From there I try to live my life and teach my students from the scar, not the wound.
My activities and interests include: I'D RATHER BE OUTSIDE! Hiking near and far, traveling, dog park, beach, lakes, mountains, walks, anything under the sun. Quality time with boyfriend, friends, and family. Staying busy and never sitting in front of the TV.
The 5 words that best describe me are: Thoughtful, intuitive, forgiving, optimistic, quirky
Something that most people don’t know about me: My name is Yugoslavian; I'm first generation American and the first person in my family to graduate from a University.
