If you were to ask those who know me, to describe me, well I guess the common reaction would be for them to stop what they are doing, widen their eyes and say; "She never stops, she's got that passion, and that discipline, and she just keeps on going! And her competitive edge, watch out cause here she comes!" Well, I guess they are right, the journey, my journey, never ends. In whatever it is that I am doing, however the task or goal reincarnates, my passion and discipline exceeds all obstacles. I think I was just born with it because I felt it at such a young age,and that is why my journey started at such a young age.

My gymnastics career started at age 6. I would jump off swing sets, diving boards and anything else I could giving my parents a heart attack. I was FEARLESS! Well my fearless passion created a 12-year gymnastics career with a well–known coach based out of Romania…and for anyone who asks, "How did you get those abs?" Well, hands down I give credit to my coach who started me doing up to 1000 ab exercises a day at 7 years old. The best conditioning ever that worked every muscle in my body was through gymnastics. Anyone who is or was a competitive gymnast knows exactly what I mean. You train muscles you never knew existed. From gymnastics, grew my passion for dance, considering dance is an integral part of gymnastics and the routining; and on top of that, in school I was also competitive in Volleyball, Track and Field, was Captain of the Cheerleading team and continued working out at the gym.

Once retiring from gymnastics at the age of 18, (yes so young but so old for a competitive gymnast) my journey and passions where still burning, so I continued with dance, in hip hop and jazz and then was introduced to Salsa dancing and Latin ballroom dancing.Well my ongoing hunger for Salsa dancing, led me to become a Professional Salsa Dancer, and a Member/Instructor, of Strickly Salsa Dance Company based in Toronto, Ontario in which our team competed and performed within Canada and internationally including the World Salsa Congress in Puerto Rico, New York and Los Angeles and Montreal. I guess you can start to see the trend for yourselves, when people say I never stop. I do not know what it is, but it is in my blood! ...that feeling, that passion, it nourishes my soul, especially when I am on stage...
