Mindy is passionate about serving her community and sharing a connection through movement and music, which is what brought her to the medicine that is Ecstatic Dance.


Mindy is a mother, teacher, guide, and mentor who is deeply invested in self awareness through music, movement and meditation, and sharing that with others. She started "Make Real Waves" in 2022 after her training as an Ecstatic Dance facilitator.

Mindy has experienced first hand the life changing benefits of sound and movement in both physical and mental health and strives to share that experience by creating safe spaces to practice connection with and expression of one’s self.

Mindy is a lover of music, dance, art and supporting local everything. When she’s not where the music is she’s probably working on her plants or searching the wilderness for some with her family.
