since I was 8 years old!

At what age did you first start to dance?

I started dancing when I was 3 years old.

Do you have any formal dance training?

Yes. I have trained in Ballroom, Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, and Hip Hop.

What other training/talents do you have?

I am a runner. I run about 6 miles everyday. I design most of my dance costumes and I LOVE to bake. Cupcakes are my specialty.

Do you currently have a job?

I assist the Dance Conventions JUMP and NUVO (2012-13). I teach ballroom privates.

Are you currently in school?

No, high school graduate.

What dancer from another season would be your dream dance partner?

Will Wingfield!! He is one of my all time favorite dancers. I would probably die of excitement if I were to partner with him. They usually don't do girls with girls, but I would love to be partnered up with Melanie Moore as well.

Which dancer from another season were you most inspired by?

Melanie Moore. I was so inspired by the humility Melanie had from the very beginning of the competition. She had such an amazing presence to her but was also incredibly technically talented. I don't think anyone has deserved to win more than she did.

What choreographer do you look forward to working with?

Stacey Tookey!! Her choreography is brilliant. It is so emotional and real. I always get chills watching her work.

What would people be most surprised to learn about you?

I have an extreme obsession with Beyonce. I have a collage of her in my room, I memorize her music videos and dance them in high heels, and I just got tickets to her concert for my birthday. My dream in life is to (1) Meet her and then (2) Be her number 1 backup dancer!! I LOVE her.
