She began her training in 2004 under Nicole Mathis-Berman where she quickly realized her passion for working with large groups of dancers. She went on to choreograph and dance for the University of Southern California’s Repertory Dance Company where she developed her work under the mentorship of directors such as Nikos Lagousakos and Rafael Garcia.
