Hometown: Waukesha, WI
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!

Ask and you shall receive! it’s finally here and it’s only offered one time and at one location. In this class, we will focus solely on stretching and active stretching.
