More About Me

I have always enjoyed dancing but I fell in love with ballroom after taking Ballroom 1 at UGA as an undergrad. After getting my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education and taking a gap year to teach English in France, I returned to UGA to get my Masters. It was then that I auditioned for BPG, and I have loved every minute of it! 

When I'm not dancing, you can find me hanging out with friends and family, reading a book, watching the latest Rom-Com, testing out a new recipe, or planning my next trip to Europe!
