I believe that how people feel matters, and I'm focused on the work that allows people to feel better, so that they can do better, for themselves and others. You fix the world by teaching people how to love, and this requires learning how to love, and this is a never ending challenge and cycle. This is the point. Practice is perfect. We can become better at loving ourselves and others and mindfulness meditation is a great supporting practice to establishing a loving culture within yourself - so that you are better for the universe.

I've been studying and involving myself in meditation mindfulness since I was 19 - and I've certainly been through times when I was more in tune with myself and times when I was not. In the months leading up to the start of the Covid pandemic in America  I picked this work up again and began to really challenge myself and reflect on my experience in life.

I believe that trauma is real and our bodies and minds carry around so much unprocessed energy and matter that it makes it very challenging to stay in touch with how we are feeling in all core ways. I maintain a daily/morning regimen that takes about 30 minutes and touches on my physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellness.

I teach Koru meditation class for teachers in our program, Aransas Teacher Corps. I graduated from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville in 2008. I have experience in teaching, public service, carpentry, and working with adults and children with developmental disabilities.
