Mission: To improve teacher's and student's daily experience in the classroom by helping them use their mind to navigate life with more ease.
Vision: We can take our power back. We can learn to reduce stress, be present, breathe deeply, and live with more awareness, compassion and peace.
As a former teacher, I bring a combined expertise of 17 years as a middle school teacher, 12 years leading at-risk programs, a masters degree in special education and 29 years as a corporate fitness/wellness professional. Mindful Wellness offers life-changing solutions to the plague of chronic stress. Teachers give so much of themselves and when they are overwhelmed, exhausted and burned out, the district suffers – with higher insurance premiums, increased illness, chronic pain, doctor visits and increased turnover. It is my passion to support teachers, advocating to reduce their stress and improve their mindset so they can perform and reignite their passion for teaching.
Focusing on the teacher is the foundation to improve a child’s experience and performance in the classroom. It effects workplace culture if teachers are stressed out, overwhelmed and unsupported. We need to be inclusive and take better care of our teachers' mental and physical health.
It is critical to not overlook the importance of a healthy, happy, engaged teacher in the overall formula for success.

Each of us can CREATE a better life through small habits that make a huge difference. Thinking about our thinking not only helps us with metacognition in academics, but in an overall more positive experience of life. What we focus on grows. We help staff & students plant seeds of better mental health & empowerment. Our tools help cultivate environment where each individual can grow into the best version of themselves.
We support your staff &/or students' self-care and help create an emotionally and physically healthy workplace so all can thrive at school & at home. The foundation for this lies in Mindfulness 101 and Dear Stress, Let's Break Up as onsite or virtual presentations. Optional resources include downloadable materials to help us start the day with intention & optimism, and release stress to reset ourselves as often as needed. Guided and moving meditations along with release and restore options are available to support the cultivation of this mindful mindset.
Our newest presentation brings tips from MWell's mindful classroom curriculum to teacher's fingertips!

Individualized tutoring to Increase confidence & understanding while decreasing stress by working in a way that works for you!
I love working with students! I use my experience to help them fill any gaps in learning, create deeper comprehension, & build the ability to advocate for themselves & their learning. My #1 passion is helping kids gain confidence & strong academic skills while empowering them by using a mindful, stress-free approach!
I use my master's degree,17 years of middle school teaching experience (in math, science & language arts), & 12 years tutoring to help students: learn study skills, complete assigned tasks, and fill in the holes they have in understanding. For many, there are gaps in the academic foundation that lead to frustration & lack of confidence. We reconstruct those and build self-esteem & lifelong skills in the process! Mindfulness is sprinkled in to show us our brain works best when we are grounded &
Help with test-taking/ study skills & enrichment for math & other subjects.
If students are in similar classes, we work together on subject material or I differentiate & guide them & help meet individual needs.. This works well with ACT beginning prep followed up with 1:1.
