About Me – Physical Therapist Assistant, Yoga Instructor & Scientist

Who am I?

Difficult question to adequately wrestle!!!  Pictures distill a lot of text, here are some current favorites

Duo with My Better Half

Harlan and I haven’t done a lot of duo together, but when we do….

Not necessarily in order of importance nor chronology

  • Lucky Wife and Mother to 2 Beautiful Children (now adults)
  • Canine Mom to 3 Gorgeous Basenjis (Romeo, Zena, & Lucien)
  • Yoga Instructor/Student since 2000.  3000 classes is a reasonable guess
    • I teach Hot Vinyasa and Chill Yin Yoga at Vivify (vivifynm.com).
      • IMG_7314
        • Teachers that have most influenced me 
          • Erich Schiffmann – Freedom Style
          • Bernie Clark – Yin! Yin is IN!
          • David Life – Jivamukti
          • J.Brown – Gentle is the new advanced (and my Podcast Favorite that broadens my perspective and has made my commute to work enjoyable)

Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant in NM and loving my job at ATI Physical Therapy


Resident of New Mexico since 2015 (but I still miss my years in WA, WI, and MN).

Document my Yoga Journey with Instagram – posts by others are so inspiring as well.


P.S.  An Escapee Scientist of Infectious Disease Research ((Ph.D, Microbiology)Research. Whew.

Proud of my accomplishments and publications and grateful for all the wonderful scientists I met over the years….. But NOT missing research WHATSOEVER.

    1. I’m afraid I don’t know of any Twin Cities studios off hand but I’ve asked a friend who lives there. I’ll get back to you, but if you want to send me links to studios that you are interested in I’ll be happy to give you my impression 🙂

I'd love to hear what you think :)
