She had the privilege to train in tap, jazz, ballet, cheer and hip-hop under the instruction of Ron Cisneros, Bonnie Bader, Connie Mockenhaupt, and Sunni Smith. She danced in her studio's and school's dance and cheer teams through her high school and college years until her focus changed to having and raising her three beautiful children.
