I grew up in Wisconsin and Georgia before my family moved to Los Angeles so that my two younger brothers and I could pursue our dreams of acting. Child stars we were not, but the acting bug had bit me hard, and I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a BFA in Acting and a BA in Communication. It was during my BFA program that my mind was blown away by yoga. The groundedness and connection to something bigger than myself that I feel when practicing yoga is truly magical. After college, I came back to LA and took classes at a million and one different studios, but I could never escape the stereotypical LA yoga vibe of green juice and Instagram models. I was introduced to One Down Dog by one of my best friends, Grace Morrison (another member of the ODD fam), and I immediately felt welcomed and at home. When I’m not working the desk, I’m probably eating tacos with my boyfriend or cuddling with my two Rottweilers, Bella and Babs, while binge-watching the latest Netflix show.
