When did you start pole dancing
Favorite Style of Dance
Wiggling, jiggling, and bouncing around - silly, joy-filled, exuberant movements. Dancing doesn't have to be serious, highly technical, or choreographed to be worthwhile!
Several years of swing dancing (East Coast, Lindy Hop, and Blues). I'm still dreaming of being a ballerina when I grow up!
Energizing and enthusiastic! I'm a strong believer that learning new, joyful ways to move your body can be one of the most empowering things. Also, I love when people ask questions!
Favorite Pole Move
Favorite thing about teaching
Seeing other people get excited about learning and trying new things.
Sea Otters, for sure.
I'm a crazy cat lady at heart, but I just want to pet ALL the puppies too! I have an oversized puppy named Tucker, and a toothless cat named Snickerdoodle.
In the PNW, summertime for sure. Otherwise, usually spring!
Favorite TV Show
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel always makes me chuckle.
Baby Driver. Alternatively, anything with Ryan Gosling in it!
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
I love hiking, photography, playing with puppies, making collages, reading (historical fiction tends to be my favorite), and watching cheesy rom-coms.
Favorite Place to Travel
National Parks. It's my number one bucket list item to visit every National Park in the United Stated - 12 down, 49 to go!
I work in mental health care.
I'm super passionate about body positivity and inclusivity!
