I come from a family of artists. My grandfather was a musician that toured the U.S. with country music greats like Grandpa Jones and Minny Pearl. My mother is an accomplished visual artist that has her own studio where she teaches her own personal watercolor technique. I have been teaching in DPS for the past 12 years. Prior to DPS I was the founding Artistic Director of Ballet Nouveau Colorado, which is now Colorado Conservatory of Dance, and the Company Wonderbound. I have traveled the world as a classically trained ballet dancer, singer, actor, musician and performing artist. I graduated from Naropa University with a degree in Dance Movement Students and I am also a National Board Certified Teacher.
