SPOTLIGHT ON A STAR
Our Co-founder, Meagan received a quick tutorial in all things yoga during a recent visit with dear college friend, Kim Markin.
The two girls have been inseparable since the first day they met in college. They have fond memories of their friendship during this time as well as their struggles as young professionals in NYC. Kim was working at a hot PR agency and Meagan slept on her couch while waitressing and freelancing at a slick ad agency.
TENNIS IN HER HERITAGE
Kim, formerly an avid tennis player is the daughter of renowned tennis pro Lenny Schloss. Lenny is the creator of the Billie Jean King Eye Coach and also happens to be the record holder for the longest tennis match with Tommy Mozur. . . 106 games! Though Kim’s sport of choice may have been tennis while growing up she has since made yoga her passion. Kim is now living and raising her family in Sullivan’s Island, SC.
YOGA IN HER FUTURE
When Kim realized she felt strongly about serving the greater good through helping children she got her graduate degree at Columbia and became a social worker. Kim’s shining part of her character is that she is fully devoted to her passions. After years of service with Good Shephard, she took time to be a full-time mother. Since then her passion for yoga has grown and she pursued her yoga certification. She fulfilled her social work training in elementary schools through an organization called Empowered Minds cultivating mindfulness wherever she goes!
Ironically, these two women have made careers out their favorite athletic activities - yoga and tennis.
