“I have been a ballet dancer for 13 years and an instructor/artistic director of my own ballet studio for 5 years, teaching classical ballet as well as other genres such as hip hop, swing and belly dancing. I have choreographed roughly 10 productions including the classical ballet, Cinderella, and five productions of The Nutcracker. I am obsessed with fashion and, for five years, I was a Stella & Dot Associate Stylist with several hundred loyal customers. My daughters and I love to travel around California to see sights, visit new places and have adventures. I also love art, sketching, painting and photography.”
