Lights, Camera, Caption

I had intended to post on here the same day that I had posted on my personal IG account, but that clearly did not happen, so here we are! Our intent can be incredibly different from our impact. I spend a lot of time reading (and thinking) about the power of our words.  From a… Continue reading Lights, Camera, Caption

Happy Teacherversary

I taught my first Pure Barre class on October 16, 2011 in Charleston, SC, and it’s safe to say that I had no idea where it was going to take me. I had taken my first class a year and half before in Charlotte, NC. Even after just one class, I knew there was something… Continue reading Happy Teacherversary


I’ve been staring at this screen for quite some time.  Each year as this day approaches, I wonder what will come to mind, and what I could possibly write that could be much different than the previous year.  Regardless, I know nothing will ever fill the void of her absence.  Do I sit with the… Continue reading SJC

Weight of the World

I hit a wall yesterday. 💥 The day before, I was non-stop from 6am-10pm, which isn’t uncommon for me, but guess it finally caught up. 😴 I always feel guilty about complaining because I know there’s SO many people that have it so much worse. I’m not necessarily referring to their situations with work, partners,… Continue reading Weight of the World

It is Twenty Twenty One

And there we have it. The first week of 2021. 🙄 Last year, I tried to find ways to slow down when I felt like I was going 100mph. To find piece of mind amidst all of the things that were out of my control. To lean on my people when I felt like falling… Continue reading It is Twenty Twenty One
