As a new role as author, Phoebe was a co-author of Cage No More by Sanctuary Publishing, a multi-author book by women who broke free from societal constraints and her newly released solo book, Dear Radiant One by WEX Press/GracePoint Publishing that is her emotional recovery story and transformational guide.

Dance has always been a way of understanding the world for Phoebe. She danced before she walked (in her jolly jumper). As a young adult, she received a BFA in Modern Dance from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she studied technique, anatomy, kinesiology, and pedagogy. As a professional modern/contemporary dancer/choreographer in New York City, her studies continued and she earned a Pilates certification from the Kane School of Core Integration, 500 hour Certification (ERYT500, YACEP) under the guidance of mentor, Jeanmarie Paolillo from YogaWorks and Restorative/Therapeutics with Jillian Pransky. She studied trauma informed therapies from Veteran’s Yoga Project, Exhale to Inhale, Embodied Philosophies courses with Dr. Albert Wong, Dr. Isa Gucciardi, and her own personal studies and experiences from unpacking her childhood trauma.

She is teacher and guide as a way of serving our world. From a lineage of teachers, she started when she stepped into the studios of the Pennsylvania Ballet in 1998, as a teacher of modern dance (Graham & Horton) for the ballet program. She taught dance, Pilates, yoga, and other movement techniques at various studios/programs in New York City since 2002. In 2014, she founded The nOMad Collective with a mission to hold safe spaces and offer healthy resources to empower you so you can live a fuller life with more joy, gratitude, confidence, and connection. She proud to have co-founded, TRIBE military yoga with 3 graduates of her 500 hr YTT program in 2018, while teaching yoga teacher training to cadets & veterans at West Point.
