• Student at VF since February 2015
  • Became an instructor for Intro and Beginner classes August 2016.

On a whim, I clicked a Vertical Fusion ad on Facebook. I saw that a Stilettos & Lap Dance workshop was being offered so decided I sign up. Why not, right? We all need a little extra sexiness in our lives! That was around the time of the Valentine's Showcase, so my boyfriend and I attended. OMG! We were blown away! The skill, talent, creativity, passion, strength and beauty of the performers was awe inspiring! I knew that I needed to be part of that. I took the Intro to Pole class the following week and haven't looked back. Except to see how far I've come!

I want every new student to know that no matter your age or fitness level, you can do this! Believe in yourself. Defy gravity!

A fun fact about myself: I was 48 years old when I started pole and at 50, I'm teaching!

My favorite pole memory is being part of the group performance to Leave Your Hat On in the February 2016 showcase, VF After Dark. (This was one year from the time I first witnessed the glory of a VF show!) Our group had so much fun during the practices! The costumes, music, choreography, and lighting were amazing thanks to Melanie's vision!
