About Me

I was sick for many years mostly because overworking and overthinking led me to be one stressed out graduate student. I thought stress would end when I finished my double major with a Masters in Speech-Language Pathology and PhD in Experimental Cognitive Psychology. No surprise, the stress continued on while earning tenure and serving administrative positions. 

I had to change- so I reversed the stress, high cholesterol, migraines, IBS, anxiety, and PCOS with lifestyle changes. It altered my life so dramatically, that I pointed my research, teaching, and speaking career to integrative wellness, using modalities such as mindfulness, yoga, nervous system regulation, and other forms of wellness. 

I founded Centered Living and wrote Whole Body Upgrade, to show other busy professionals how they could have more energy and less stress- without being miserable. They could feel better too- and actually enjoy life. 

I spend my time hiking and working in Athens, GA with her husband, two active boys, and a furry co-worker, Rocket. Most weekends include watching my teenage boys run super-fast in running competitions!
