Favorite Songs To Dance To: My song choice really varies on my mood. I typically like songs with heavy emotion/meaning; something I can really relate to and pour my heart out through my movement. While other times all I want to dance to is something slow and sexy! Here are some of my favorites: Say You Love Me – Jessie Ware, Self-Conclusion – The Spill Canvas, Castle - Halsey, Dance for You – Beyoncé, Wildfire - Tinashe
Favorite Quote: “It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments when you are truly yourself.”
Why I Teach At Flirt: Teaching pole and inspiring women gives me so much fulfillment and I believe with all of my heart that this is my calling in life. To have the opportunity to inspire and guide women through their pole journey as my instructors did for me is an honor. I believe in everything this studio stands for. As instructors, we are here to not only help you learn the art of Pole Fitness but, also, to learn the art of becoming a stronger, more confident you!
What I Want For My Students: I want my students to truly gain everything they hoped to gain from Flirt Fitness and MORE! I want my students to truly fall in love with themselves. I want to see them wear their bodies with great pride; loving every inch of their uniqueness. I want the wall size mirrors in the studio to no longer be a voice for their insecurities, but a FRIEND that gives them a clear reminder of their true beauty and strength. If my students walk out of the studio each week feeling confident, sexy, strong, and full of self-worth then I will know I am fulfilling my duties as an instructor.
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: Flirt Fitness is not just a “Pole Studio”, it’s also a safe haven built of a community of amazing women who are ready to welcome you into our lives as our sister. This studio has become my sanctuary where I can strip down all of my insecurities and express myself through my movement and I’m sure every woman at this studio would say the same for themselves. And, though taking the first step can be intimidating, I promise you, you will thank yourself for taking that courageous first step as you watch your life transform for the better... I can’t wait to meet you!!!

Favorite Songs To Dance To: Depends on my mood! Sometimes it's AC/DC or the classic "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard. If I'm feeling more dramatic, it can be "Say Something" by A Great Big World or anything by Sam Smith. Rihanna is kind of a fun go to, so I kind of love dancing to it all!
Favorite Quote: “There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask "What if I fall?" Oh but my darling, What if you fly?” — Erin Hanson
Why I Teach At Flirt: Flirt has completely changed my definition of fitness, what is sexy, and has transformed the way I think about my body. This studio has created such a wonderful, safe, comforting, encouraging environment that truly celebrates women and I am so excited and humbled to have the chance to be a part of Flirt and spread the message of empowerment to other women. It is so easy to get lost in obligations and errands and day-to-day life that we can lose sight of taking care of ourselves and Flirt has created a safe and inviting atmosphere that allows us to remember who we are as women and gives us time every week to take care of ourselves first before anyone or anything else.
What I Want For My Students: I want my students to feel sexy, strong, and powerful! I want them to be able to leave their obligations and responsibilities at the door and unleash their inner goddess. I want them to love themselves and know that they are beautiful, and sexy, and an amazing person!
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: It is the journey that matters! Everyone's pole journey is different and while it can be hard, don't compare yourself to anyone else! Everyone comes to Flirt from different backgrounds and fitness levels and it can be easy to get caught up in how other students are doing, but what is important is why you are here and how far you have come, not someone else!

Favorite Songs To Dance To: "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard, "6 Inch" by Beyonce, "River" by Bishop, "Down With The Sickness" by Disturbed and anything by In This Moment and Rihanna.
Favorite Quote: "What can we do, rejoicing and honoring, to show our respect? We can heal. We can cherish our bodies and honor them...For the body is not the dwelling place of the spirit--it is the spirit. It is not a tomb, it is life itself."~ Paula Gunn Allen
Why I Teach At Flirt: Flirt gave me the sense of community I have always wanted. I started as a student with little to no confidence in my body and in my beliefs. What a transformation it has been! I am grateful for everything Flirt has given me, and it just felt natural to become an instructor. These are my people.
What I Want For My Students: I want my students to feel welcome. I want to contribute to a safe space where women can be creative and express themselves without judgement. I want everyone I encounter to feel supported mentally, physically, emotionally and even spiritually.
One Last Thing I Want You To Know: I take sensuality and creative expression very seriously. I believe it is important for women to have environments conducive to both of these.
