Where were you born? Where do you live now?
I was born in New York, but raised in New Hampshire. I currently reside on the seacoast of Portsmouth, NH
Tell us a little about yourself, your hobbies, things you love.
I am a yoga instructor and host classes and retreats all over the seacoast from New Hampshire to Maine. I host day hiking trips, camping trips and wellness retreats during the summer, and then host yoga and snowboarding/skiing events in the winter. I am also a full time dog mom to a beautiful hound mix from Mississippi: Ole Miss.
Tell us about any accomplishments you have received over the years and/or goals you are trying to achieve.
I have acquired a Bachelors in Recreation Management and Policy from UNH, a 200-hour Yoga teaching certification, a Reiki Level 1 certification, a SUP Yoga certification and currently enrolled in a 500-hour Yoga teacher training program.
Why do you think you live a GutseyLife?
I believe I live my best life every day I can. Living in the moment and respecting the importance of the present moment allows me to live a little more peaceful and content. As an avid outdoorsy women, I love sharing my passions (yoga and nature) with as many people as I can.
How do you want to help/inspire others?
Ideally, I would love to host events that are affordable for all individuals to be able to engage in outdoor, recreation-based activities and experience Mother Nature as present as they can. Having a belly full of healthy bars would help too! ;)
