I moved to Nashville in 2013 from New York City, where I lived for more than twenty years studying, teaching and performing dance.
I am a Feldenkrais Practitioner, certified at the Feldenkrais Institute in 2015. My training was primarily with David Zemach-Bersin, as well as Aliza Stewart, Anna Johnson, Sheryl Field, Paris Kearn, Carol Kress and Deborah Bowes, among others.
Beginning dance classes at the age of 4, I eventually received a B.A. in Dance Anthropology at UMASS Amherst, which led me to study and live in Cuba and West Africa. I earned my M.A. in Dance Education from Teacher's College, Columbia University and have been a licensed dance teacher/choreographer in the NYC public schools since 1996, working with children of all ages and abilities.
In addition to my work as a Feldenkrais Practioner, I am also a graduate of Martha Eddy's Dynamic Embodiment, Somatic Movement Therapy Training, a foot reflexologist and a Body-Mind ball work and yoga practitioner.
