I have been a member of Cirque Asylum for quite awhile but only practicing silks for about one and a half years. I started teaching the foundational strength class just over a year ago, which has helped my progression in the air.

I have learned a lot in the past year and a half so I want to share what I have been working on. I have also been inspired by past performers and watching them grow in classes with me.

This will be my first Cirque performance but training for my performance has improved my strength and endurance. It has been fun putting together things I have learning over my time taking classes.

Circus is for everyone! There is room at Cirque Asylum for anyone that is patient and wants to learn to fly!

I am a recreational therapist by day at a local addiction recovery center. I also enjoy line drawing, watercolor painting, and spending time with my husband.
