About Me

I was born in Florida, then lived in Texas, and then moved to Colorado.

In my free time

Honestly, I mostly work in my free time. I work multiple jobs and pick up extra shifts. I love getting more experience in different aspects of the field. I also craft a lot: quilt, crochet, sew, embroider, cross stitch, paint, etc. I spend a lot of time hand making different things as thank you presents for my mentors and family.

Life in college

I was part of the recruitment team for the music school and I was in multiple studios for most of my time at the University of Colorado. I participated in Greek life and spent a lot of time working at theaters. I found that performing wasn’t the right fit for me, so I thought music direction would be. It wasn’t. Over the last four years I found that being part of a show or ensemble isn’t how I can contribute in the strongest possible way.

I found that the admin side lets me use what I know about performing and give the performers exactly what they need for success.

Learning adaptability

If I hadn’t been willing to explore other options I would have never found what I truly loved. I would have always been a performer and never realized that I have the opportunity to help other people to succeed.

I think it’s important to go after what you want and put everything you have into it, but you also have to be willing to try new things otherwise you’ll miss out on amazing opportunities. I found saying yes and keeping an open mind are the moments when you learn the most.
