Gained experience breaking the language of movement down to communicate to individuals and couples in a way that was true and insightful for them.
Student of Somatic Movement
Soma is a living process by which our bodily sensations, movements, perceptions, emotions and thoughts form a whole of experience. Somatic study is an inquiry into our "lived body" by observing and exploring ourselves through sensing and moving. I have been instructed in somatic-led dance since high school, and continued on through my college career. (Nia Technique, Jazz, Modern, Ballet, Contemporary, West Coast Swing, Ballroom, Zumba)

Integrative Medicine Teacher's Assistant and Guest Speaker
While getting my degree I was able to dive in deeper into integrative medicine, as I was responsible for a knowledgeable and guiding role as the teacher's assistant. From this I became a guest speaker in the class in the topic of faith and healing. Integrative Medicine has a role in the arts! Or rather, the two are joined, as many cultures around the world use the arts in their healing practices.
