I’m so glad you are here. With all that I have, my goal is to serve YOU - help elevate your health: Body, Mind & Soul.
My passion is to empower Dancers with the knowledge to dance longer & stronger, with more confidence and joy in the studio and on stage.
Dance has been a part of my life since I was nine. I trained at ballet studios as well as competition studios – my heart knows and loves both worlds! (Did you know you were reading the bio of Teen Miss Dance of Michigan 1994?!)
I went on to dance professionally The Joffrey Ballet, Ballet Pacifica, State Street Ballet and The National Choreographers Initiative.
As a dance educator, I have been on the faculties of Boston Ballet School, New Jersey School of Ballet, Grand Rapids Ballet School and an adjunct professor at Hope College and Grand Valley State University.
At GVSU I taught a course called Dance Conditioning which covered dance anatomy, nutrition, cross training, injury prevention and how to increase strength and flexibility.
Wanting to learn more about anatomy and mind-body connection, I completed my RYT yoga teacher training in 2016. I teach Yoga for Dancers at summer intensives and virtual classes for Apolla Performance - Check out the schedule here.
I am a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach and work with clients around the globe. My clients include ballet “bun heads,” competition dancers, concert and commercial dancers.
You can find me listed on Doctors for Dancers!
Want to sample some of my writing? I have a blog here and am a blog contributor at The Muse by Apolla. Want to listen to my co-hosted podcast? Check out Rising 360°.
I am married to a handsome Marine (oorah!) and mamma of two lovely daughters, ages 9 and 12. My other joys in life include cooking from scratch, working out, spending time with my family, hosting big dinner parties and reading.
Honored that you are here, Dancer! Please reach out to me via email if you would like to connect!
