Having grown up in rural Vermont in the middle of the woods with no running water or electricity, Riley learned at a very early age to become one with nature. Throughout her life she has combined athletics, art, and healing which she attributes to how she was raised.  Riley has traveled throughout the United States with her teacher Zoran Hochstatter honing her innate abilities. She has used hands-on healing for hundreds of people, horses, dogs, cats, birds, and even a sea lion!

"Upon your first introduction to this person, you will feel the warm energy that she devotes her life to. This is a special human that makes every class more inspiring, every party more fun, every talk more meaningful. It's been a pleasure being inspired by her for my 20 years of knowing her." -Jen E. Smith, Yoga Teacher and friend
