I began dancing at the age of 15 and started my education at North Jefferson Academy of Dance. I was inspired, and I worked to receive a Dance and English degree at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Now, I have been a ballet, tap, and jazz instructor at North Jefferson Academy of Dance for 26 years. Dance is life! I am also an English teacher at Fultondale High School with a Master’s degree and gifted and talented certification, starting my 22nd year in education.

I have two gorgeous and gifted children, Martin and Lydia, whom I love and adore the most. They amaze me daily and are my favorite dance partners.

My passion is teaching and sharing what I know with people in my community, with hopes of inspiring others to learn and love.
