Two of my passions include music and dance. I started taking dance lessons at age 5 and loving it ever since. Like most dancers, I find myself dancing whenever music is playing. Tap is my strong point and I love the challenge ballet brings me. After working in the travel industry I have moved back to Portland. I recently completed my degree in Marketing while working a full-time job. When I have the time you can still find me in a dance class.
