A native of Maine, I grew up learning the discipline of movement with the Robinson Ballet Company in Bangor. After graduating High School I attended college at Marymount Manhattan College in New York City and graduated in 2009 with a BFA in modern dance. I then became a dancer with the STEPS Repertory Ensemble working closely with choreographers such as, Azure Barton, Sean Curran, Benoit Swan Pouffer, Camille Brown and Cherice Barton. I also began working for Equinox Fitness Club becoming a Tier 3 personal Trainer gaining knowledge in strength training and nutrition fitness and enjoyed working with clients on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I was asked to join the Wardrobe department of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater where I fit, altered and maintained costumes as well as managed crew both in NYC and on tour. I was fortunate for the next 6 years to travel nationally and internationally with some of the best dancers in the country, maintaining my personal training certification throughout. I left my Ailey family and began working with the American Ballet Theater as female corps wardrobe supervisor in January of 2020. The Coronavirus pandemic shut down the Theater world in March of 2020 and, with difficulty, decided to move back home to Maine where I could be closer to my family. Since moving back, I have continued my interest and focus in bodywork and graduated from Downeast School of Massage Therapy. I continue to realize everyday that touch and community play a very important role in the balance of self, the body and society in general. The more we work together the better we will be.
