I have strong organizational skills and I’m good at planning events to get people together or to raise money for a cause. I have years of customer service experience in retail and healthcare related jobs. I’m comfortable teaching and leading people in small to larger groups due to my experience as a PTA and a dance teacher. I have been teaching dance for 17 years and have taught many genres including: Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Modern, Hip Hop, Pointe, and Acro.
