"I strive to instill a sense of accountability, responsibility, discipline, passion, and artistic ability through the art of dance in all students. Seeing a new passion and appreciation of an art form grow, while developing body awareness, and succeeding in skills or tasks students have never engaged in is a beautiful experience. This will be my 7th year at West, and I can't wait to see what the new year holds! I am a wife of 15 years, have a 9 year old son named, Ayden, a 4 year old Yorkie Poo named "Reece Cup", and a 2 year old Boston Terrier named "Millie Vanillie".
