I have been dancing since I was 3 years old – that was when my mom walked me into North Jefferson Academy of Dance. I am so blessed that my mom chose this studio for me. I danced at NJAD until I graduated from high school. The studio and its instructors developed and fostered my love of classical ballet and helped me gain so many wonderful friends. When I was 12, I began helping at the studio. This is where my love of and journey to teaching dance began. I loved teaching others what I held so dear to my heart.

Upon high school graduation, I was awarded the Rebecca Robertson scholarship from NJAD, along with a scholarship to dance at Huntington College. I became an instructor at NJAD when I was 20, and the rest is history. Over the years, I have been privileged to train under many world-renowned instructors and choreographers. I am now entering my 14th year as the owner and director of NJAD. God has blessed me with a career in something I love. I don’t just go to work. Instead, I have the privilege to teach dance and the love of Jesus.

I currently reside in North Jefferson County with my husband and our two children. My daughter is now taking at the same studio I grew up in, the place I love. I hope you and your family come to love NJAD and our instructors as much as I do.
