While I am a Cincinnati native, I come from a few different backgrounds. I was raised in Anderson Township and excelled in school, but my passion for dance became my first career goal. After training with Cincinnati Ballet, I was a trainee for 1 year. I then was fortunate to be a company dancer with Columbia City Ballet in Columbia, SC for 8 years. After a severe injury, I returned to Cincinnati and continued to teach ballet. My passion has really transformed into working with students and developing a positive mindset and determination to work hard towards goals. I became administrator for Ballet Theatre Midwest and this rekindled my interest in organization and numbers. I was excited to pick up new skills at BTM and with hotel auditor work. Today I continue to teach ballet at two dance studios and live in Mt. Washington. I also currently work as a restaurant server and certified personal trainer. I really enjoy reading just about anything and continuing to learn. I am excited to be a part of the Diocese and the wonderful impact it has on our community.
