1.What is your occupation?

I’m the Aim True founder, writer, yoga teacher, lover of food + dogs.

2. If you weren’t a yoga instructor and author, what would you be?

I’d probably be a professional chef. It’s all about the food!

3.Who is the funniest person you know?

Bill Murray. He cracks me up without even saying a word.

4. On a plane would you rather sit next to the person with a raging cold, the nonstop talker or the person with a tuna and onion sandwich?

Tuna and onion sandwich. . .maybe they’d share.

5. How do others see you?

Authentic, kind and fun.

6. When are you most happy?

When I’m in the kitchen surrounded my loved ones and dogs.

7. When did you last cry?

A few hours ago after a particularly earnest moment with my best friend.

8. When did you last apologize? And to whom?

To my best friend—might explain the crying.

9. Chicken, steak or quinoa?

Chicken in my quinoa, please.

10. How do you Put Your Pretty On? (How do you get your game face on, so to speak!)

I remember that it’s my duty to show up and give my students/readers 100% of myself. They come to me to be inspired, and I intend on delivering every moment, because I would never want to have someone walk away disappointed because I was in a cranky mood.
