I was born and raised in the Portland area. As a kid I remember dancing all of the time, playing the tape recorder over and over and over to figure out the words and creating choreography to a song. I am trained in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Modern, Hip Hop and Contemporary. I was a member of my High School dance team and became a member of the Portland Trailblazer Dance Team performing at Basketball games, Fashion shows, Conventions, Television appearances and Commercials around the Pacific Northwest in 1983'. I have been teaching dance for 20 years to children, teens and adults. My Fitness career started five years ago. I am certified in GROOV3, WERQ, WODU-Jam Fitness as well as Aqua Fitness. In elementary school I wanted to be a Physical Education teacher when I grew up. NAILED IT.
