Melanie grew up in Massachusetts and came to Austin in 2008. She loves Austin; the music, food, people, scenery, even the heat! She enjoys the outdoors, traveling, crafting, volunteering and exploring.
She found her passion in working with children through volunteering with Girl Scouts and becoming a professional nanny. She also hosts foreign exchange students and recently became a licensed foster parent! She is constantly looking for more ways to improve her knowledge in working with children and got her associates degree in psychology and child development in 2017.
She stumbled upon The Little Yoga House with her nanny kids a few years ago and became a regular at the studio! She absolutely fell in love with the atmosphere and positive energy and took noticed in how yoga transformed her nanny kids. She has always loved practicing yoga on her own and once she discovered the teacher training she couldn’t wait to join.
She is so happy to be a part of TLYH team and also hopes to use her new skills both in her professional career and with foster youth providing trauma informed yoga classes.
