After Dawn exists to inspire you to WAKE UP to your life. I am here to inspire self love, authenticity, confidence, and enthusiasm. I believe in the alignment of passion and purpose.  Everything I do and create is done with attention, intention, and love. 




I taught elementary school for almost a decade and it was amazing. Truly. Yet, I could see a passion in one of my fellow teachers that I did not feel in myself. “And the time came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful, than the risk it took to blossom.”- Anais Nin. Heeding many signs from the universe, I dared. I dared to dream my life could be whatever I wanted it to be. So I leapt, into the arms of the universe. From Philadelphia to St. Thomas. From everything familiar and safe, to the unknown. I knew I wanted to teach yoga, to share my feelings of insecurity, self doubt, and fear, with others in hopes that by offering my vulnerability and authenticity, I could touch hearts and through healing myself, ultimately pave the way for others to do the same. I have always felt a deep passion to make, to create, and to work with my hands so I began collecting shells and hooking them to ear wires to fashion earrings. I began to sell them to my yoga students…..and well, the rest is history! For the first time in my life I actually listened; I listened to my spirit guide, my guru…..ME! Who gently lead me to finding my purpose as a healer of hearts.  She lead me to believe in the value of my own experience and find the courage to share it with others. She lead me to St. Petersburg, Florida, a magical community that I am so proud to call home. 

Each day, each moment is like no other, and will never be again! My designs, my instruction, ceremonies, and workshops, all serve the same intention: to meet each moment with grace, with curiosity, and without expectation so as to experience yourself as beautiful, whole, and always enough, because you ARE! May the feeling of AfterDawn be with you always. 

Blessed BE!
