It led her to co-found Yoga Village, a 501c-3 non-profit dedicated to providing yoga services to vulnerable populations. Through YV she has worked to develop programs at Families First – Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault Center, Boys and Girls Home of Lake Waccamaw – Orphanage for Foster Children, LINC – Residential Facility for those Recently Released from Prison, Communities in Schools Young Parents Group and A Safe Place – Residential Facility for Victims of Sex Trafficking.
