- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Safety is #1! I am CPR, AED, and First Aid certified. I continue to travel all over the country training with industry leaders to ensure that I am qualified in the latest techniques and safety standards.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, but moved to Salt Lake City in my early twenties with my husband and trained in aerial arts, Like many young Iowa professionals I found my way back home, to Des Moines, and while the art scene in Des Moines was flourishing, there still wasnât anything quite as thrilling as aerial being offered in the state. So I developed my program, began teaching classes, and became Iowaâs first and only aerial instructor. The response was unlike anything I could have imagined and within a year hundreds of women, men, and children had been introduced to the wonderful work of aerial through my classes. It didnât take long for students to progress and I began training novice students into professional performing aerialist.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I perform at a lot of music events, festivals, Holiday parties, and VIP events.
