I am from from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and started dancing in 2001 at Fred Astaire Dance Studios. I firmly believe that I have received the best ballroom training I could possibly have gotten anywhere in the country thanks to the continued opportunities provided for us.
I have taught for approximately 16 years now at the Milwaukee downtown location and love the camaraderie of the teachers and students. I cannot help but believe I have always had a family at the studio and have been able to count on my team for whatever I have needed.
I have always wanted to help my students gain a love of dancing and really enjoy training and helping my fellow teachers any way I can. Being certified as a dance director has definitely been because of my passion for teaching. This leads me to sharing the most rewarding experience I have on a day-to-day basis; my students are inspired to forget about their problems and just dance!
My accomplishments as a professional dancer include becoming a Fred Astaire Rising Star Champion along with becoming a finalist in the Rising Star division at Emerald Ball, one of the largest independent competitions in the U.S!
I want you, you, you…everyone…to GET INTO THEIR LOCAL FRED ASTAIRE DANCE STUDIO!!!
