While in the throes of my awkward early teen years (13 years old to be exact) I discovered my love for dance. Music from The Supremes, Simon & Garfunkle, and The Righteous Brothers was playing on the radio and provided accompaniment to endless hours of imitating the dancing I had watched on TV shows like "Lawrence Welk". Anything that brings joy in those tumultuous years is a relief for parents, and mine dedicated what little extra funds they could to provide piano lessons for me and my sisters. Although I never had the opportunity to take dance lessons as a young girl, the piano lessons paid off in terms of musicality, timing, and a sense of joy in artistic interpretation.

After raising my own family and being faced with an empty nest, new possibilities began to emerge. I was inspired to begin ballroom dancing at middle-age, and found my passion. I was lucky enough to find a wonderful professional dance partner (just like those featured on "Dancing With The Stars") and although it isn't possible for me to dance for 8-10 hours a day physically or financially, over the past several years my instructor has been patiently and gradually molding me into an accomplished ballroom dancer, and together we have competed as a pro/am couple in numerous ballroom dance competitions. Although one is never to old to begin ballroom dancing, I only wish I had pursued it years ago.

What began as a hobby has now turned into my business. In 2009, I started an online retail store featuring ballroom apparel and dance shoes, and recently purchased a Ballroom Dance studio near my home in Dallas,Texas , which coincidentally is where I first began learning to ballroom dance.

In addition to ballroom dancing, I enjoy playing golf and riding motorcycles with my husband.
