Self-employed (mostly) except I do work part time for a great local nonprofit, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas. Self-employment includes grant writing and grant management, professional and technical writing, copyediting, proofreading, and teaching yoga. Occasionally, I do some nonprofit consulting.
I’ve been practicing since 1996 and teaching since 2010.
My classes tend to be small and are made up of those who might not feel confident in a yoga studio setting. I offer private yoga sessions which are focused on stress management and working with the parasympathetc nervous system to bring the body and mind into balance and overall health and wellness. I also bring yoga into the workplace, and love teaching chair yoga.

I worked on behalf of low-income college students for 20 years, both in higher education and in nonprofit work. I watched so many overcome tremendous odds and achieve their academic goals and dreams. They continue to be a tremendous source of inspiration. I am grateful to work with community and state leaders and philanthropists who are committed to making the world a better place.
The academic stuff: MA Professional and Technical Writing, BS Education, Boardsource Nonprofit Leadership Certifications, Leadership Greater Little Rock Class XXIX, and numerous professional development workshops
Yoga: E-RYT200, certified Chair Yoga Instructor (LVCY E-RYT200), member of International Yoga Therapists Association (IAYT) and Yoga Alliance (YA). I will finish RYT500 in April 2019.
I’m married, have two grown sons, one lovely daughter-in-law, two funny and amazing grandchildren, one golden retriever, and a few other special bonus people who I lucky enough to call family. I live in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The Jewish people have a saying, “Tikkun Olam” and the meaning is to repair the world. I’m trying.
