Kami is a Washington, DC native. After growing up in Bethesda, MD she moved to Austin for her undergraduate degree, and subsequently spent a year teaching English in Japan and traveling in Asia. She is a Critical Care trauma nurse in the burn ICU at Washington Hospital Center with the hopes of one day continuing on to become a Nurse Practitioner or a Nurse Anesthetist. While not a full time teacher, she enjoys both teaching and practicing as a means to provide a work / life balance. With medicine as a passion, she thrives in the high-paced and high-intensity arena of the ICU. However, Kami uses teaching and practicing as a way to unwind, to indulge her body and mind, and to help people use yoga as a primary means of bettering their health. She has been practicing yoga since 2010, and went to the Bikram Teacher Training in 2013 in Los Angeles. Her favorite posture is camel pose, and her most challenging posture is standing separate leg forehead to knee. Kami looks forward to furthering her yogi knowledge by learning how to teach vinyasa yoga. In her free time you can find her playing with her 3 cats and her dog, Gus, doing a crossword puzzle, or baking something delicious.
