Biography on the French site
I've been dancing since the age of 5 and haven't stopped. Born and raised in Thunder Bay, I started dancing at Amelia Jackson, and as the years went on, danced my way through a variety of famous names: Ballet Theatre of Pennsylvania, University of Minnesota in jazz and ballet, and Nutcracker. I received numerous awards and accolades for my performances, and have a love of teaching. I currently choreograph for Giant Gymnastics.
My life revolves around my 2 daughters, who are following in my footsteps—one being a dancer, and the other a gymnast. When I'm not shuttling them from point A to B, I spend my time running, cycling, snowboarding, traveling, and cooking. My active and healthy lifestyle coincides perfectly with my business: Fresh Air.
Dance has honestly been my life. I can’t hear a song without choreographing a dance to it, and I hope you enjoy the one I choreographed with my partner, Dr. Nucci!
