Bio & Description

I am an ACE-certified personal trainer and have a special interest in the dance population. I gained my BS in Kinesiology and BFA in Dance from Western Washington University but before that ran track, cross country, and qualified for State Championships in the triple jump. I was a personal trainer and Zumba instructor at WWU Rec Center and I currently am working at Avant Physical Therapy as a PT Aide/ Front Office Assistant. I am applying for DPT programs this year.

Area of Expertise (Sports and Body Areas)

My interests and history with dance, running, and weight training have led me to an area of expertise in working with dancers specifically looking to enhance their performance ability as well as females looking to gain confidence and strength in the weight room.

Background and Personal Athletic Experience

I originally started dancing when I was 3 and transitioned to solely ballet in middle and high school. I loved the rigor and beauty that came with the ballet and the movement of the body continued to fascinate me throughout college. During my high school years, I was also a cross country runner and sprinter and thrived in jumping field events (triple jump specifically). My background with running and athletics was supplemented with weight training during my time at Western where I gained knowledge about resistance training and lifting. While in college, I decided to focus my attention on my dance training in hopes to dance as a professional dancer. I danced with professional company Bellingham Repertory Dance for 1 year and moved back to Seattle. I will be working as a freelance dancer with Karin Stevens Dance and hope to continue dancing! In my free time, I still love to run and supplement my training with cycling, yoga, and barre.
