I live in Dallas, Texas and recently left my executive
position at the leading community management company to embark on a
completely different path, teaching Bikram Yoga.
When I moved
to Dallas in 2005, I found a Bikram Yoga studio near my house. I had

I am also a crafter, I love scrapbooking, knitting,
making cards, sewing, pretty much anything "artsy." I started my own
company a few years ago to sell a craft cushion I created after going to

new Snuggie blanket so I still have a day job.
I started a new
company in 2009, "Bike Run Yoga that's my tri", to help inspire others
to get out and do what they love. In 2009 I completed 12 events, of
which, the highlights were completing my first marathon, riding 100
miles for the second time in Hotter N Hell in Wichita Falls, Texas and
competed in my 3rd yoga competition. I'm not athletic and I hate to
sweat but I am learning to overcome many of my fears and issues with
being an "athlete" through expanding and exploring the possibilities of
Bike Run Yoga.
