I'm a Trained Teacher of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). I've practiced mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation since 2000, mostly at Spirit Rock and Insight Meditation Society, where I've sat over 20 silent residential meditation retreats ranging from 10-30 days. I'm grateful to have been trained in MSC by Chris Germer, Kristin Neff, the co-founders of MSC, as well as Michelle Becker and Steve Hickman.
I've taught Mindful Self-Compassion at Harmony Yoga Studio in Berkeley, CA, and I'm presently on the Board of Directors of Mindful Schools, the largest mindfulness K-12 teacher training organization in the US.
Professionally, I have worked in K-12 educational philanthropy for over 20 years where I've focused on teacher professional learning, the spread of high quality classroom instructional materials and teaching practices, and improving post-secondary education and training for disconnected youth and young adults including those leaving the foster care system.
