What was the first ballet you ever performed onstage?
Like many, The Nutcracker. I was very young and had the role of “Spanish Chocolate.” I auditioned, got the part and walked on with a touring company wearing a headpiece dressed up as a chocolate bar.

Has there been a defining moment in your career?
There have been many moments of note for me, but getting my first contract was a realization of so many years of dreams, trials, tribulations, sacrifice and hope.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love to take road trips, make music, visit new places and spend time with loved ones.
