I’ve lived in Lexington for 9 years now - a period accompanied by many life changes – getting married (10 years ago) to my wonderful husband Brooks who has given me endless encouragement and support in making Lexington Power Yoga happen, giving birth to 4 children, quitting work to be a FT mom, and then going back less than 3 years later, and most importantly, making so many amazing friends in Lexington - friends who have helped me truly learn what is most important in life – having a wonderful family, friends, and being a part of this amazing and supportive community. Lexington Power Yoga is my opportunity to give back to this unique and special community.

I received my undergraduate degree from U Penn and Wharton, spent several years on a Wall Street trading desk, got my MBA from Duke, and then spent 12 years at Fidelity Investments – for so long my life was defined by running and career – that all changed after having a family. After 20 years of running competitively I’ve had to struggle with chronic hip and hamstring issues after enduring many medical miracles in having my 4 beautiful children – I turned to yoga to help me get through this pain. When our fourth child was born I left my career in investment management, thinking this was my calling to stay home with the kids – I struggled (and still do) with that balance between career and family many of my fellow moms know all too well – I turned to yoga to help me get through this challenge.

Always looking for the next challenge, it was my gut that told me it was time to start my own business – Lexington needed a yoga studio, and yoga had become an important part of my life.

I was lucky to literally stumble into the partner I always dreamed of – Jillian and I have so many ideas of how to make Lexington Power Yoga the best yoga and wellness center ever!
