Darci is the Founder & Editor in Chief of Etched Magazine, a southern Utah based publication in timeless format distributed throughout the "Grand Circle" national parks region. This award-winning publication has been her ticket to experience the trails and backcountry of the majestic southwest landscape. 

​Growing up on the C.R.I.T. Reservation in Parker, Arizona, Darci funded her college education at Northern Arizona University through the ranks of the Miss America Organization. Her public service since that time has been as blissfully diversified as her life. 

​This desert dweller and adventure seeker's free spirit led her to the mat only a few years ago. Realizing the value and benefits of yoga, she dove into certification for the educational aspects only to emerge from the training waters with the desire to share her passion for the practice. 

With her Hatha RYT 500 in hand, 60hr CE Advanced Vinyasa Training, 20hr CE Hands On Assist certification, if you don't find Darci behind the computer, on a trail, or on the mat, try the dirt. She and her husband, Steve, own Iron Mine Race Park in Cedar City and are an avid ATV/UTV racing family.
