As a dancer I have been fortunate

that impact my professional and personal life

As a dancer I have been fortunate and have eagerly pursued opportunities that impact my professional and personal life .I have danced professionally with Inland Pacific Ballet as a soloist, Los Angeles Ballet as a company member and Utah Metropolitan Ballet as a principle, where I am still a full time dancer.

I’ve performed in Austria, Canada, Germany, China and Korea and have taught at many Summer Intensives and studios. Some of these include: Jacqueline’s Ballet, Mississippi Ballet Theatre, Encinitas Ballet, Long Beach Ballet, and the Pointe Academy. In 2007 and 2008, I was a final round competitor and placed in the top 12 internationally at the Youth American Grand Prix in NYC.

In 2013 I was awarded “Best Emerging Choreographer” at Regional Dance America. I also have performed as a guest artist all over the country and have made many lifelong connections and friendships.
