Hi. I’m Christina, a life-lovin’ flowery writer, amateur home cook, yoga teacher-student hybrid & newly-hatched attorney living in Madison, WI. I went to college at the University of Michigan where I double-majored in English and Women’s Studies. I later earned my J.D. at the University of Wisconsin & was trained to teach yoga through CorePower Yoga’s 200-hour power vinyasa teacher training program. I continue to educate myself with good books, yoga workshops, conferences, my favorite teachers & all the mentors I’ve collected throughout my time on this earth. I practice my law the same way: rooted in tradition, yet made modern & accessible, always infused with a little personality & creativity. While I work, I burn candles & bump music that inspires me. I try to surround myself with people who uplift & inspire, too. I like to end my days with a home-cooked meal or a sweet, slow yoga practice by the fire. Here, I write about all of that good stuff. Feel free to subscribe to this blog to get an email each time I spill my guts. You can also follow me on Facebook & Twitter.
