Marlita grew up in Charlottesville, VA, and received a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Marlita is a military spouse; her husband is stationed in Japan with the United States Air Force. Eleven years as a yoga instructor, blended with military moves, have given her impactful opportunities to work with children and adults with special needs, as well as active-duty military members and their families. Marlita has trained in trauma-sensitive and adaptive yoga techniques for populations with special needs, as well as with Warriors at Ease.
Marlita discovered Dog Tag while stationed in the DC area and soon applied to the fellowship program. Through Dog Tag, Marlita hopes to gain a foundation in entrepreneurship that will support avenues for providing yoga as a complementary therapy to medical care.
