I began my career as a dancer and musician where eventually I realized I wanted to contribute to the arts world not just as a performer, but as an educator, arts administrator and advocate. I earned a BA in modern dance with dance education emphasis from the University of South Florida and a MFA in choreography from The Ohio State University. I quickly learned all aspects of the arts education field working as a full time dance specialist in both Ohio and Florida, and currently completing my K-12 Dance Teacher Certification in NY. I was previously the education and outreach manager for Dance Theatre of Harlem’s Dancing Through Barriers program and am currently the Director of Arts Education for Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana in NYC. Actively involved in arts and education advocacy, I am a board member with the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable, I currently sit on the Arts Education Advisory Council with Americans for the Arts and am a School Board Trustee at VOICE Charter School in Long Island City, Queens.
