Jen grew up as a dancer and a swimmer, and with a love of time spent outdoors. When her mother was diagnosed with stage 3-C ovarian cancer in 2003, Jen found refuge and peace in yoga as she juggled caring for her mother as well as her newborn daughter.

A few years after the birth of her second daughter, Jen completed trainings with Karma Kids in New York City, YogaKids, and Mini Yogis, and became a registered children’s yoga teacher. Friend and teacher Carson Efird gave Jen her first opportunity to teach children’s yoga, which she continues to enjoy today.

In 2008, Jen earned her RYT 200 certification in Carson Efird’s program, now a Prana Flow Yoga Affiliate Program through Shiva Rea’s Samudra Global Living Yoga School. Jen has since completed her 300-hour training under Shiva Rea and now is RYT 500 certified.

Jen has lived in Raleigh ever since her 1995 graduation from Pennsylvania State University. She continues to draw inspiration from her two young gurus, her daughters. Life would not be complete without their glowing spirits.
