I created my company Art of You in 2015 because I believe that every woman deserves to see herself as a work of art. After over a decade of working in the beauty industry, I realized that I needed to do something more for women. The truth is that is that most women focus too much on changing what they don't like about themselves instead of celebrating their unique beauty, im(perfect)ions, and authenticity. Through my private sessions, workshops, and retreats, I support women to embrace their authenticity and grow in self-love.


When did you take your first Qoya class? Believe it or not, my first Qoya class (in 2017) was during my training to become a Qoya teacher! Until that point, I had only practiced Qoya alone in my living room with Rochelle's videos online. I felt the call and jumped in with both feet.

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? For me, Qoya is like coming home to myself. Qoya is medicine, truth, and remembering. When I practice Qoya, I feel like a joyful carefree child and the highest, wisest version of myself at the same time. I feel wise, wild, and free! I am honored to share that feeling with other women and helping them to embrace their authenticity.

What is your favorite song to dance to right now? “Lovely” by Sara Haze

What book has inspired you on the path to embodying the feminine? The Radiance Sutras and (of course) Qoya the book!

What would you tell someone who is thinking of taking a Qoya class for the first time? Qoya is SO MUCH FUN! In Qoya, you can truly be yourself with no judgement and there is no way you can do it wrong!
