I’m a military brat, so I’ve lived all over the world! Los Angeles, NYC, all over Virginia, Newport RI, Hawaii, Japan…and the list goes on. I guess I’ve been in Seattle long enough so that I can call it home at this point.

Why do you love Divine Movement?
Dancing at Divine Movement has allowed me to truly love being me. It’s a playground for women, a place to let loose and be yourself in a totally comforting environment…surrounded by the most amazing teachers and students! After a class… whether I teach it or attend as a student…I feel empowered, alive, centered, exhausted, confident, and usually have a huge smile on my face.

What do you consider your teaching style?
Supportive, fun, exciting, comfortable. I simply want every woman who attends my class to see how beautiful she is…inside and out.

What music is on your “Divine” playlist right now?
This changes every day….Seriously I’ve got pretty eclectic taste in music, so it’s all over the place. My latest playlist included, The Scorpions “Woman” and “Animal Magnetism,” “Fifteen – Alternate Version” -Marilyn Manson, “A Beautiful Mess” – Jason Mraz, “Dog Days are Over” – Florence and the Machine, “Billie Jean” – Chris Cornell (Cover), “Sometime around Midnight” -Airborne Toxic Event, “I’m Gonna Crawl” – Led Zeppelin, “A Woman’s Work” – Maxwell. (Just to name a few!)
