Career aspirations: I am currently in Duke's Master of Engineering Management program to pursue a career in product management at a tech/engineering company. I plan on continuing to teach ballet at a local dance studio for the rest of my life!

Favorite memories: Dancing a spontaneous second show of the Nutcracker right after our first show—since there was a line around the Rubenstein building to watch it!

I would like to thank Julie and Tyler Walters for shaping the ballet program while I was at Duke and working with me to pursue both engineering and dance. 

“The Dance Program has allowed me to think about dance in a completely different way by providing some of the most unique classes, like ‘Dancing States of Mind’ and ‘Performance and Technology’”
