Creativity is intelligence having fun. - Anonymous
I drink. I swear. I use cannabis. I strip. I am a murderino. I am an insulin dependent diabetic. I have lived with asthma, anxiety, and chronic depression for most of my life. These things are a part of what makes me unabashedly me.
I grew up in a loud loving blended family full of teachers, engineers, military, and artists galore. "The Arts" were embraced and beloved in my family from stage to screen to gallery to basement workshops. This colorful background is something I have carried and cultivated in my years as an adult. I was a primary school educator for 10+ years working in CA, CO, and NH. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education from Ashford University. I got involved in the Bay Area Burlesque scene in 2011 and gave my expression an outlet from stage kittening to producing. Bad Influence Burlesque was the biggest burlesque and variety show in San Jose, CA for 4.5 years. I continue to perform and travel with my art whenever possible.
I began my work in the fitness and wellness industries in the childcare area of a family owned and operated barre studio in San Jose, CA. Through labarre studios I grew my skills and I have served as their Marketing Coordinator since 2018. I also began to explore classes and practices that had previously felt inaccessible. I began to explore my own training and certification pathways, always on the hunt for something that felt accessible as a disabled woman with external medical equipment.
I made a big decision after Covid-19 shifted the world to begin to build what I wasn't finding. Hours of training, classes, certification, curriculum development, and honing skill sets began. Where it goes will be an evolving work and journey.
Thank you for letting me be a part of your journey.
Thank you for being a part of my journey.
