How did you become part of the Poise Family?

Instructress extraordinaire Sarah encouraged me to talk to Danielle and the rest is history!

What is your favorite thing about Studio Poise?

We have the best clients in the world at Studio Poise. Part of Danielle's vision for SP was to create an environment that was judgement-free, confidence-boosting, and a truly supportive community. I am blown away all the time by the ways I see clients fulfilling that on their own, both inside and outside the studio. It is the SP community that really sets it apart from other studios.

Favorite move?

It's certainly not unique to SP, but I am always a fan of the push up. Although, I love to teach a great abs series.

Favorite Quote:

"Surround yourself with people who lift you higher." I don't know who said it, but I wouldn't be half the person I am today without some amazing people around me.

My other favorite is from Little Miss Sunshine, and it is a daily mantra of mine: "Do what you love and f*ck the rest."

When your not in the studio how do you sparkle?

Dancing and teaching! I'm currently pursuing my MA in Dance Education at NYU and am constantly inspired by the positive impact dance has on people's lives. I also am addicted to yoga, iced coffee, the beach, and my girlfriends, so if those have been a part of my day, I'm very sparkly.

If nothing was holding you back (time, money, etc) what would you do with your life?

I really love my life, actually; letting those things hold you back is a waste of energy. But I think a lot of travel, more dancing, more teaching at SP, conduct some research on dance and quality of life, buy my dad a boat, and take my mom around the world.
