I have been involved in dance for the past 22 years. I was involved in studio dance until I graduated high school and danced competitively through there. I was on my high school dance team for four years and was a captain for two years. I was also on the St. Ambrose dance team for four years and won row NAIA national championships while there. I coached the newton high school dance team for the past three years as well as taught ballet to young dancers. I have a very competitive spirit but still love to have fun. I’m all about getting down to work and working hard. I have my bachelors in psychology as well as my associates in nursing. I just started my first nursing job at the University of Iowa Healthcare and Clinics Hospital. When I’m not at the studio you can find me hanging out with my roommate Katelyn, my boyfriend and puppy, or dancing around my apartment. I cannot wait to watch the dancers grow as humans and dancers. I am so excited  to share my love of dance at the studio level.
