BIOGRAPHY:

    I grew up in Arizona where I have been dancing and choreographing for as long as I can remember! :)
     I began taking dance classes at the age of 12 at Dance Connection Too, where I fell in love with dance and made it a full time commitment. 
     I danced for 3 years on my high school dance company and was the captain for the Varsity and Competition cheer teams for 3 years.
     I was blessed to receive NCA All American and toured Germany, Austria, Chicago, and Hawaii for dance and cheer performances. I also coached dance and co-ed cheer camps as an NCA Staff Member for Arizona and California.
      I attended Mesa Community College where I was the captain for the co-ed cheerleading team and danced on the company for 3 years. 
       I attended Arizona State University where I received my BFA in Dance Education.
       I danced professionally for the Arizona Rattlers Arena Football Team for ten years and was selected to represent Arizona as the Arena Bowl All Star Dancer in 2005. 
       Prior to joining the Dobson Mustangs I was the dance director at Fremont Junior High School for six years. I am currently in my 10th year as the Dance Director and 3rd year as the Varsity Pomline Coach and Pomline Competition Coach here at Dobson High School.
       
       I was raised in a family of educators and knew early on that I wanted to be a teacher. My high school dance teacher was amazing and inspired me to continue her work as a dance teacher in the public schools.
       I am happily married to my high school sweetheart who happens to be a Dobson Alumni! We are blessed to have two beautiful children who brighten each and every day.
