In 2008, I completed my Master’s degree in Food Studies from NYU and culinary training from the Natural Gourmet Institute of Health and Culinary Arts. My professional culinary experience began as an intern at the world-renowned Golden Door Spa in Escondido, CA. I then continued my development in the kitchens of noted New York restaurants including Momofuku Ssam Bar, Prune, and Hearth.
While I love to eat and I love to feed people, my real passion is to help others learn how to feed themselves.
Driven by the desire to bring my food + yoga worlds together, I now share a practice called I Am Nourished. Recognizing that hunger comes in many forms and nourishment comes from many sources, I Am Nourished Workshops and Retreats combine the things I love most: yoga, mindfulness, self-reflection, sharing, and yes! EATING. The result is a soul-satisfying blend of ingredients that feed body, mind, and heart.
