I am a military kid, trained to adapt and adjust to new situations and changing environments. These are the very skills that help make a great performer. I have used my skills to keep my passion alive. As a young child, I started performing, acting in school plays, performing in local fashion shows, anything my mom could find to get me to be a part of. This all paid off when I signed with my first Agency in Wichita, Kansas at the end of High School.
From there I started college at Clark Atlanta University and later went to New York competing in IMTA (International Model & Talent Association) and later being offered a contract with a South African Agency. My parents turned down the offer to ensure I completed my education. Being a student didn’t get in the way of my passion - “Find a Way or Make One”. I studied under Carol Mitchell Leon and performed with the CAU Player. I pursued both modeling and acting while working 3 jobs and graduated with a Dual Concentration in International Business and Finance.
Upon Graduation, I tried to retire from performing, but something kept pulling me back. An old Producer who became my friend and mentor was instrumental in getting me back into the Industry. From there I worked on different projects for different clients like Bronner Brothers and Soft Sheen Carson; producing and choreographing fashion shows, facilitating fittings & stylings models for shoots.
My mentor pushed me to embrace my gift for teaching and coaching talent. I became an Instructor at John Casablancas, where I was later named the Head Instructor of the Atlanta Center. I have written and updated curriculums, equipped a number of Instructors to teach, trained hundreds of students, and seen a # of them go on to Success in Dance, Acting, Modeling, Film, among other things.
One of the greatest Lessons I learned is to Network to your Networth. Over my time in the industry, I have been a Runway Model, Promotional Model, Print Model, Runway Choreographer, Stylist, Model Manager, Actress, Voiceover Talent, Stage Manager, Teacher, Coach, Assistant Director, Production Assistant. I have worked with Industry people considered to be successful, those struggling to stay paid and relevant, and those waiting to be discovered. Throughout my journey I was fortunate to build an amazing Network of talented, motivated, like-minded individuals to support one another and build a future that we all believe in. That is what brought me to the BE Squad. I have never been able to deny my destiny.
