The Beginning… My career began as an exotic dancer in 1999 where I immediately took to the pole like a monkey. With help and influence from some of the best dancers, pole artists, and fitness professionals around the world, my performance evolved into an innovative athletic endeavor. It took several years of hard work, trial and error, and education, but I eventually honed my craft to the point where I could leave the strip clubs behind and earn the title of the World’s Most Famous Pole Dancer™.
Experience… In addition to my work as a feature performer, cover girl, promoter, and personal trainer, I’ve had the opportunity to both compete in and judge events in places like Europe, Australia, Central America, Japan, and the Caribbean. I’ve also been honored with many championship titles for my work and starred in the first advanced instructional pole DVD, Pole Tricks 101.
Instruction… I’ve done a great deal of research on nutrition and the human body, its functions and boundaries for all shapes and sizes. This allows me to offer my students the most personalized instruction possible. Aside from providing both challenging and inspirational instruction, safety is also one of my biggest concerns. I take a great deal of care to ensure my programs permit students to comfortably play with what they’ve learned months or even years after I visit them. These are just a few examples of what have made my method of instruction one of the most recognized in the world; often imitated, but never duplicated!
