Born and raised in Kansas City, KS, my dance/gymnastics career began at the age of three. I trained not only at my local gym, but received the opportunity to train with the amazing Bela Karolyi! I participated in competitive gymnastics for 6 years, receiving many all around placements at each event.
I then began to dance competitively. I was a member of a competition dance team for 5 years, training in ballet, jazz, lyrical, and hip hop. My love of this art has lead to teaching / choreographing both recreational and competitive gymnastics and dance for local schools and studios.
I attended Washburn University where I was a member of the University Cheer Squad for 3 years; serving as Captain and Co-Captain for 2 years. I received my Bachelors of Business – Marketing & Management Degree in 2014.
I continue my training of dance and tumbling by attending many conventions and master classes. It’s so inspiring to witness students reach their goals and to see the joy that comes with it. I am more than excited to join the Dance Expressions Family; I can’t wait to share my passion for dance and tumbling with my students!
