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.

I'm passionate about introducing others to this powerful and healing practice. Please get in touch if you'd like to learn more about MSC and/or my upcoming courses.
