I started dancing when I was 4 years old at Stairway to the Stars where I took dance and tumbling classes. Missy was my first dance teacher! I also had solos and was a member of numerous competition groups until I was 15. When I was 12, I began taking additional ballet technique classes at the University of Iowa as part of their Youth Ballet Program. There, I was part of the Winter and Spring ballet staging’s of the Nutcracker, Coppélia and Études, to name a few.
I attended the University of Iowa and received my B.A. in Business Administration and Minor in Dance in 2012. Since then, I’ve worked at Washington State Bank as a Personal Banker where I manage the day to day functions of our Card Services products.
I live in Washington with my husband, Kyle, and our son, Berrett. We enjoy living in Washington since we both grew up here. It has also given me the opportunity to teach at the studio where my love for dance began!
