Where were you born and raised? Buffalo, New York 


When did you start dancing and why? When I was 4, my mom thought I would like it. I think she really just wanted an hour of peace and quite lol.


What subjects did you study? Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Acro, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Modern and African Dance


What are your goals for your dance students? Well obviously you want to instill in them proper technique, but dance is also an art form, so part of my goal is to bring out a passion and love for dance and encourage creativity that will stay with them forever.


What do you love about teaching dance? I love being able to share my love for dance with my students. I was always told as a child to do what you love and love what you do. I have never looked at teaching dance as a job for that reason. Being able to watch a child overcome a fear or obstacle and achieve something they have worked so hard to attain is a wonderful and fulling feeling.

Who was your biggest influence growing up? My very first dance teachers, Ms. Carol and Ms. Debbie. They shared with me their love and passion for dance and I will forever be grateful to them for that.  I truly believe that without them and dance I would not be the person I am today.  And also my grandmother she taught me to never give up no matter what, life is not perfect but its all about how you play the cards you dealt.


Secret talent? I'm half robot ;) 


Favorite article of clothing? I love black stiletto heels.


Favorite snack food? Pizza Rolls
