I was born…  

Phoenix, Arizona – I grew up in the Town of Paradise Valley.

My favorite thing about Arizona…  

the incredible outdoors.  It is pretty amazing that you can grab a quick hike year round in the middle of the city.

I’m listening to…  

Zoe Keating is my go to artist right now, Yann Tiersen, lots of Spotify.

My family… 

I have four sisters and a brother.  There was never a dull moment growing up.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…   

any one of my good friends.  I love them.

One thing I cannot live without… 

the feeling of joy- one of the reasons I chose dance as a vocation.  I get to experience joy every single day.

When I was younger, I wanted to be… 

MC Hammer.  Don’t laugh! He was really cool for a minute or two.

I’m inspired by… 

my coworkers.  They do incredible things every day and I feel privileged to be a part of it.

The one person who motivates me is… 

my best friend.  He has been unconditional in his friendship with me.  It is hard to find that kind of love and acceptance. 

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… 

no judgments- against myself or others.

The perfect day would be… 

a drive to Sedona for hiking and a trail run, followed by a deep tissue massage, followed by some good food, and having a good friend along for company.  That day happened a few weeks ago.  It was perfect. 

My first job was… 

I was a stocker at a health food store at the age of 15.

My favorite escape…   

a good book. 

My life…   

is extremely blessed.  I feel really good. 

I’m currently working on…   

getting more involved in our community.  Just completed a volunteer form that was 9 pages long.  I’ve also started running.  Ran in three short races last year.  I would like to do a half marathon this year.    

Always…   

be kind.

Never…   

burn a bridge.  

Favorite Quote… 

“…words have exact meaning.” Ayn Rand “Atlas Shrugged”. I love that we have countless ways of expressing ourselves.

Biggest Dream…   

to be fulfilled.

My Pet Peeve(s)…   

lying, people on cell phones at checkout counters, poor tippers, rudeness.
