Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am teaching both résumé writing and everyday yoga, and I know quite a bit about both. My résumé is essential in my previous and current searches for jobs and co-ops, it has gone through dozens of drafts, and it has been critiqued by many knowledgeable people, so now I want to pass along this advice to you. As for yoga, I've found that even a simple flow like the one I teach does wonders for relieving stress and reinvigorating the mind and body.
