About MJ

When I finished my first marathon in 2008, I swore I would never to do it again.  A year and a half later I found myself deeply in love with running--competing in ultra-marathons and enjoying every moment (well, almost every moment).

The following year I decided to take the next step towards an animal free diet and transformed myself from a cheese loving vegetarian to a diary free vegan.  The results-- decreased body fat, less bloating and stomach pain, and most importantly more mindful eating.

I also practice yoga regularly and believe that through learning to control the breath, we can heal both the mind and the body.  As with the other areas of my life, this is a journey for me.  Over the next year, I'm planning to study to become a yoga instructor as well as deepen my own practice.

My husband and I  married in 2008 after meeting in our teacher training at Arizona State University.  We have since lived in the U.S., South Africa, and South Korea.  We love to travel and explore.   I love learning new things and challenging my mind, body, and spirit to reach new levels of health and vitality.
