Ginger’s path to teaching people yoga to help with mental health challenges took her through traditional science and one of the nation’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturers. After earning a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Health Science from Anderson University, Ginger spent a decade in clinical trial research for Eli Lilly & Co.

Her entrepreneurial spirit moved her into opening Blue Sage studio and Laynee’s boutique and helping her husband who owns a real estate business, until she sought something more personally and professionally meaningful. Ginger’s experience led her to become a registered yoga instructor (RYT-200) and to pursue training in trauma sensitive yoga.  She has been teaching children, adults, and groups for the past couple of years and is now using her experience in support of Care to Change’s efforts to help people overcome trauma, lower anxiety, and improve self regulation and overall mental health. She trains first responders in mobility and mindful breathing so they are even more effective in their work. Ginger’s specialty also adds to our wellness services available for businesses and is offered on an individual and group basis.

Ginger and her husband, James, have been married for nearly two decades and are active members of Kingsway Christian Church. The couple and their four children (one of whom is adopted) have called Avon home since 2000.
