History:

I am originally from San Francisco. I was in a car accident in 2008 and suffered injuries to my back, shoulders and knees. I began practicing yoga to aid in my recovery. It made such a difference in my life that I decided to become a yoga teacher and fitness instructor. A few years ago, while looking for a fun way to stay in shape, I tried aerial acrobatics and I fell madly in love. Within the first few minutes of trying aerial, I knew it was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. Years later, I am now a proud member of the circus community. I have performed at many events including Circus Maximus and Bootie LA. I love to help others learn, develop, and improve.
