I was first introduced to the formal practice of mindfulness during law school, where I took a course on the relationship between the legal system, contemplative techniques and meditation. Immediately intrigued by how mindfulness positively affected my personal and professional life, I continued my education and practice, studying various mindfulness traditions including Mind Body Stress Reduction (MBSR), Vedic, Zen and Theravada Buddhist meditation. Presently, I am a certificate candidate in the Mindfulness Facilitation Program at UCLA's Mindfulness Awareness Research Center at the Semel Institute on Neuroscience, where I previously completed a year-long mindfulness intensive practice program. In addition to my training, I regularly take part in meditation workshops and silent retreats, and recently acted as a Teaching Assistant for UCLA's undergraduate course offering in Mindfulness Practice and Theory.
Energetic, passionate and devoted to making mindfulness practice accessible to all who want to learn, I am committed to helping others experience the wide array of positive benefits derived from these techniques. I teach mindfulness in both one-on-one sessions and group workshops to the general public, college students, attorneys, new moms, wellness practitioners, corporate executives and many others.
