I am so happy to be apart of the front desk team here at MWLC! To tell a little about myself I am a guitarist, an artist, and I love nothing more than spending the day on the Lake!

With a background in healthcare, I made the leap from the corporate world to pursue my interest in holistic wellness. After intense exploration of various wellness practices and activities, I experienced the significant benefits of routine self care. As a member of the brilliant team at MWLC, I am excited to share this passion for self care and wellness with each guest and support the expansion of these experiences within the community.
