Hometown

Greenville, SC!

 

Song that gets you do-ing?

"The Greatest" by Sia is my new city grind - street stomping inspiration.

 

Best thing you #janedid?

Moved to Manhattan when I was 18 to pursue my career as a dancer. I have gained so much experience, learned so many important things, and met the greatest people. It's a land of opportunity. I am so thankful to DO what I love everyday.

 

TOP of your to-do list?

If I'm for real... Book the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular!!!!! Honestly though, so many things... my life is a constantly moving and changing to-DO list. I want to travel more. Scotland and Ireland are next on my radar! 

 

Guilty pleasure?

Is this question even fair? Chocolate, pizza, anything with peanut butter!

 

Best friend?

My Mom is my greatest supporter and I will always be so grateful for her friendship.

 

Your greatest strength?

I have over-abundant faith in dreams, be them my own or someone else's. Because of this, I have so much motivation to set goals and accomplish them. I love to complete tasks that will bring me closer to the goals I have. 

 

WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR STRENGTH?

From others around me. I have such a natural passion for connecting with others and I gather strength, inspiration, and stamina by learning from them. The best work I DO is when I'm not doing it alone.

 

Hidden talent?

Race walking! Tokyo 2020 here I come.

 

Worth it splurge?

Plane, train and bus tickets to see people and places!
