What I Love most about teaching? Being able to help my students improve the quality of their lives. Rather through weight loss, reconnecting with the significant other, meeting new friends, or just giving them a chance to relax and laugh.

Who I admire the most and why? I admire my parents and grandparents for always showing me love and support!

One thing most people don’t know about me: I love animals and one day want to operate a dog and large animal rescue.

Hobbies: – I love being outdoors. I like to ride my ATV and camp, and always have my pups with me. I also enjoy watching our Indianapolis Colts!

One of the coolest things I’ve done: – The coolest thing ever was performing on the main stage with Dancing with the Stars for Disney’s Christmas Day Parade on national TV.

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.
