How did I become a Sleep Wellness Coach?

In 1998 I was emersed in the high-tech, cubicle-dwelling, software startup dance. I began exploring meditation as a way to offset the stress. I also added power yoga to my fitness routine as a way to cope with the sedentariness of my work.

Thirteen years later, my influential position was negatively affecting my health. I could not figure out how to take care of myself properly. I decided to get serious about what yoga could do for me, and completed my first teacher training.

That decision was a dramatic fork in my road.

I experienced what it was like to feel alert, yet relaxed & calm. I felt the impact of a restful night’s sleep. I liked this version of me a LOT better (and so did my friends & family!).

“I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.” –Robert Frost

When I returned to work, I saw my colleagues in a different light: how they scarfed down lunch from a styrofoam box. How they ran from meeting to meeting without a breath. The tension in their necks & shoulders. The off-the-cuff remarks about sleepless nights caused by work worries. How Diet Coke and cookies fueled the afternoons.

I now knew it was possible to feel better. I wanted to help my colleagues.

I continued my training in Therapeutic Yoga, Wellness Coaching & Healing. I kept working in tech so I don’t forget what it’s like: the unrealistic deadlines; the pressure of getting it right; the overwhelmingly hectic schedules.

If you’re worried about the quality of your sleep or energy, let’s figure things out.

Personally . . .

I love Boston. I’ve been a competitive West Coast Swing dancer and an ESL teacher.

I’m a cat person who grew up with Doctor Who.

You might see me screaming at the TV over Bruins hockey for a good part of the year.

In addition to Yoga I enjoy Tai Chi, walking, kayaking, reading & writing, high-quality food & drink.

I’ve been to 20 countries (so far)!
