Through my Year of Living Better® program, I've combined my extensive knowledge of science-backed wellness strategies and self-improvement techniques to create a meditation practice that focuses on feeling healthier, more rested, and motivated to take on new challenges.
I received formal meditation teacher training at Unplug Los Angeles, completing their signature 200-hour program led by internationally-renowned meditation master and author davidji. Currently, I teach at corporations and public institutions throughout Chicago including as the lead mindfulness coach for the staff of the Chicago Department of Public Health.
Prior to joining the well-being community, I served as Editor-in-Chief of InStyle magazine in Prague where I lived for almost a decade, and then as an in-demand marketing consultant for Fortune 500 companies. In my downtime (and when it's safe to do so), I love to travel the world exploring new cultures and volunteering for organizations such as English in Mind (a non-profit English language school in Haiti).
I am a member of the Society for Human Resource Management, the American Mindfulness Research Association, and the International Mindfulness Teacher's Association.
