Q.Why do you dance?
A. I dance because I believe it is what I was put on this Earth to do. Dance can go places words can’t and I want to use it to invite people into the Jesus story.
Q. What's your favorite DQ blizzard flavor?
A. Chocolate Extreme!
Q. What has been your favorite role so far?
A. One of my favorite roles was Clara in the Nutcracker. I also enjoyed premiering Alexandre Proia’s Four Seasons as a faun. My partner and I represented hope throughout the ballet and the choreography was a blast.

Q. What advice do you have for younger dancers?
A. be confident in your identity. Dance is what you do, it’s not who you are. You are a beloved princess of the King of Kings; your future and dreams lie in His hands (not those of any director). Let Jesus be your rock, pursue excellence from a heart of grateful worship, and everything else will fall into place.
"I am completely in awe of God bringing these dreams together into one and orchestrating all of the circumstances to prove His sovereignty and faithfulness. Super stoked for this adventure"
