Mother. Choreographer. Dancer. Entrepreneur. Professional Encourager.
My mother told me when I was a little girl that I was a great dancer... But I would never make it...
I loved my mother, but twenty years later I own a dance studio.
More on that in a second.
Like most women, I got married young to the wrong guy. Had two kids and moved to Detroit. Divorced and went to work in the insurance industry. I ended up in a cubicle.
You ever worked in a cubicle? They are tiny fuzzy prisons where people put up pictures of their family on gray walls and pray for five o'clock. The insurance industry is tough. It's like being a fireman, but never going outside or helping anyone directly. You see all the awful things that people suffer from, talk to widows, deny claims. It was heartbreaking.
So I decided to branch out and take a leap of faith... I went to the bank and get a business loan. I opened a burlesque dance fitness studio
in Cedar Rapids, Iowa...
From there I struggled with getting my message right, surviving the first few years of business, and getting the local population to love the studio!
We have put on sold out shows for years and continue to empower women with our fitness and dance classes.
I also have a seven week confidence and fitness program that has helped hundreds of women... It's called Secret Wardrobe.
