I’ve lived in Lexington for 9 years now - a period
accompanied by many life changes – getting
married (10 years ago) to my wonderful husband
Brooks who has given me endless encouragement
and support in making Lexington Power Yoga
happen, giving birth to 4 children, quitting
work to be a FT mom, and then going back less
than 3 years later, and most importantly,
making so many amazing friends in Lexington -
friends who have helped me truly learn what is
most important in life – having a wonderful
family, friends, and being a part of this amazing
and supportive community. Lexington Power
Yoga is my opportunity to give back to this
unique and special community.

I received my undergraduate degree from U Penn
and Wharton, spent several years on a Wall Street
trading desk, got my MBA from Duke, and then
spent 12 years at Fidelity Investments – for so
long my life was defined by running and career
– that all changed after having a family.
After 20 years of running competitively I’ve had
to struggle with chronic hip and hamstring issues
after enduring many medical miracles in having

my 4 beautiful children – I turned to yoga to help me get through this pain. When our fourth child
was born I left my career in investment management, thinking this was my calling to stay home with
the kids – I struggled (and still do) with that balance between career and family many of my fellow
moms know all too well – I turned to yoga to help me get through this challenge.

Always looking for the next challenge, it was my gut that told me it was time to start my own business –
Lexington needed a yoga studio, and yoga had become an important part of my life.

I was lucky to literally stumble into the partner I always dreamed of – Jillian and I have so many ideas
of how to make Lexington Power Yoga the best yoga and wellness center ever!
