I am very excited to be engaged in Irish dance. I found this form of expression at a later age, but it has stuck with me and has become a lifelong adventure. My dedication to this performing art has taken me from studying under mentors in Germany, with family in Ireland, to studying with masters though zoom in my living room. I work closely with local Irish bands to add excitement to their local performances. Whether on tour or at a local nursing home, I focus on authenticity and inclusion. I take this passion with me into classrooms and workshops, where I share my Irish dance experiences. My projects focus on creating hope in the community through the expression of Irish dance.
