Katie is an Integrative Nutrition + Soul Coach, Yoga Instructor, and essential oil enthusiast. Katie spent 10 years in bilingual education teaching in Spain, Dallas, Las Vegas, and Charleston before transitioning to be a full time Yoga Teacher and Holistic Health Coach. Her yoga journey began in high school after quitting ballet and needing an outlet for moving her body. She quickly saw how the practice also helped her build a better relationship with her body and build confidence. Katie went through her first 200-hour yoga teacher training in Las Vegas in 2013 while also attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and plans on completing her 300-hour Yoga Therapy Training through Phoenix Rising this fall. She is the founder of ROOT to RISE, a holistic health and soul coaching program + sisterhood that helps women get to the root of their physical + emotional health concerns so they can rise above them. When she is not teaching yoga or on coaching calls, you can find Katie on the beach, a patio, or strolling downtown Charleston.
