Home Town: Atherton, CA
Birthday & Astrological Sign: September 16th, Virgo
A Day in the Life: Wake up, curse at alarm clock, stumble out of bed, then off to work for a day of advertising and brand strategy. If it’s a good day, I get to go to S. Dance, dance, dance. Then dinner at 10:30, and fiddle with playlists until I can’t keep my eyes open any longer.
Preferred S Song: Where to begin? Nutshell by Alice in Chains, Breathe Me by Sia, You Shook Me by Zeppelin, Wasted by Mazzy Star, Drive by Melissa Ferrick, and Blue Jean Blues by ZZ Top. Right now I’m also really into 90’s rock, any version of Song to the Siren, and anything by Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Black Keys, Brightblack Morning Light, Red House Painters, and Kings of Leon. Whew!
Teaching Style: Relaxed and fluid with a big splash of energy. I like to think I’m empathetic and supportive, respecting each student’s individual journey.
Personality: Warm, authentic, enthusiastic, and soulful. I pride myself on being thoughtful and being a good listener. I’ll stop in my tracks if something feels inauthentic in any way. I’m also pretty lighthearted and quite good at laughing at myself. I’m much happier when I don’t take things too seriously.
Reason for Teaching: I’m for all things dance. I love to be able to express myself freely through music, and I like to help my students do the same. I love being able to help women work through their emotions and find freedom in their movement.
Can't Live Without: My amazing friends and family, the ocean nearby, the studio, songs that I can feel through my entire being, a busy social calendar, my King Charles spaniel, and hummus.
