My love of music and movement began as a child. Because of this, I spent my free time in a dance studio starting at a relatively young age. I tried all types of dance—ballet, jazz, tap, even hip hop—which I wasn’t very good at! Though I loved the movement of ballet, I enjoyed the upbeat tempo of the other styles. So, I ditched my ballet shoes after a few years and continued rocking those jazz and tap shoes.

Then I discovered barre and realized that I could incorporate those beautiful ballet moves into a workout with upbeat music—yes, please! I instantly fell in love with barre, and I wanted to share the joy that barre brings me with others. So, I started teaching.

When I’m not at the studio, I can be found outdoors taking advantage of the beautiful Bay Area weather, catching up on some mindless TV that’s piled up on my DVR, or hanging out with friends and family.

I’m excited to be a part of the Fam and to work out with you!
