personal interests

I have been dancing - ballet, modern, jazz, and tap - since I was three years old and attending plays and musicals even longer. I grew up performing with the Marion Performing Ballet, and I was a member of the USF dance team in college. I also love to travel, and over the past few years I’ve been to Canada, Italy, France, Ireland and many US states.


I am from central Florida, but I currently live in Chicago, IL, with my husband Nick and my cat Walter.
