Q&A

What was a defining moment in your career?

Performing “Beauty” in Beauty and the Beast. I’ve done leading roles in other ballets, but this was the first time I did one with a full Pas de deux. I also ended up performing it with two different “beasts” because of an injured dancer!

I love Pittsburgh because…

I found the love of my life, Joseph Parr, at PBT!

If I weren’t a ballet dancer, I would be…

A newscaster or journalist
