After 17 years of high intensity, high-performance work with internationally renowned high tech companies, I learned all too well how a stressful work life can harm one's personal life. Instituting a routine mindfulness meditation, I discovered firsthand how a meditation practice can transform that same life. In fact, it transformed my own life so much so that I now dedicate myself to sharing the benefits of mindfulness in the corporate setting via my company Opulent Mindfulness. I’ve spent the same 17 years studying with some of the world’s most recognized authorities of mindfulness methods and yoga. Originally obtaining a Bachelor of Science, I focused on the intersection of psychology, biology and nursing. More recently, Ayurveda and yogic practices inform my holistic approach to choosing preventive, radical health.
I’ve led courses and sessions for teams at diverse organizations such as Deloitte, Silverstein Properties, Citrin Cooperman, NIKE, Columbia Sportwear, Legacy Health Systems, Kaiser-Permanente, Chenoweth Law, Multnomah Athletic Club (sister to NYAC), Anthropologie, Friends of the Children, VISTAGE, WE-Worldwide, Christensen Electric, Technology Association of Oregon, Wacom, Showpad, Zapproved, Toastmasters International and many more.
When I’m not working, I enjoy road biking, cooking healthy food, spending time with family and friends, and hiking with my dog, Max.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
