Not long after her first silk class, she was enrolled in a full time aerial training program under the mastery of Cirque du Soleil coaches, Rachel Walker of Kooza and Sarah Steben of Saltimbuca. Almost immediately after she left school, her career took flight. She has since performed at many fairs, benefits, concerts, and special events across the country. She has also worked with high profile stars like Macy Grey and studied silks in the same school as P!nk.
