Hometown?
I grew up in Latrobe PA but have lived in Seattle long enough to consider Seattle my home.

Why do you love Divine Movement?
Divine Movement provides an accepting, supportive and nurturing environment. I love the absolute freedom and abandon I experience when dancing in such a safe environment. At times I may feel raw or exposed, and it is okay. There is never judgment, criticism or a need to compare. Everyone experiences their own unique pole journey and the instructors at Divine embrace the beauty of all women. I’m also astonished by the strength, both physical and mental, that pole dance has given to me. Divine Movement is an amazing playground that I am thrilled to be a part of each day.

What do you consider your teaching style?
My teaching style is encouraging, technical and hands on. I want women to leave class feeling beautiful, challenged and supported. I strive to provide an experience that embraces your individual journey while also taking you places you didn’t know were possible.

My playlists are constantly changing and growing. Variety is the key, as you never know what will move you.
