I am the Dance Alive Financial Officer and I provide administrative support and insight to the wonderfully diverse and dynamic Dance Alive team. I specialize in bookkeeping and all things related to Mind Body Online.
I was born in Australia to American parents, which has given me the gift of dual citizenship. I grew up in a rural Northern California town and drove a tractor in the pear orchards as a summer job.
After high school I attended UCLA and earned a degree in Communication Studies while enjoying the newfound freedom of University life. Traveling abroad further expanded my horizons, and the relationships and experiences I enjoyed during my early twenties helped guide me to a job at a healing arts studio in LA called the Hub, where I was the manager from 2010-2014.
The time in my life connected to the Hub provided fertile ground for an accelerated period of self-discovery and has helped to shape the current trajectory of my life's journey. It was there that I initially became involved in Dance Alive. Of all the healing arts that I have studied, the Dance Alive System has provided me with the set of tools, principles and experiences that I draw upon most often in my daily life. It continues to help me navigate both my personal and professional relationships efficiently and with integrity, which I am incredibly grateful for. It is extremely refreshing and inspiring to participate on a team that is thoroughly committed to Functional Relating, Growth, and Movement.
Now that the Hub's physical incarnation in LA has completed, I am enjoying my life in Santa Fe with my partner Lauri, our two dogs Pacha and Wink, two cats Meepers and Guapo, chickens and bees. We are continuing the work from the Hub in a non-physical format, utilizing technology to facilitate groups remotely. We are planning to expand into hosting retreats as well.
