More Facts: I have been dancing since I was 3 years old, competing in my first competition with my father at the Ohio Star Ball at the age of 4.

I began teaching in 2003 and I love it. I teach social and competitive dances and enjoy both equally. My goal is to enrich and touch everyone's life that I teach by sharing the great benefits that dancing brings!

In my own dancing, I have competed and performed all across the United States with my partner Jonah Schneider in the Professional American Rhythm Division.

We won numerous events and finished in the final 6 in many top events such as World Rising Star American Rhythm Championships, United States Rising Star American Rhythm Championships and The Fred Astaire National Championships to name a few.

One thing most people do not know about me is … I am an only child and was adopted at 2 weeks old!!!
