Her journey began as a child at her community studio where she found her passion for movement, music, and dance. Inspired by her teachers and hungry for more she took every opportunity to learn and create. After High School she spent the summer studying Vaganova Ballet Technique, Pointe, and Russian Character dance with Asaff Messerer and Yuri Chatal.
