Where were you born?
How long have you worked for NECCA and what is your job?
I’ve been working for NECCA for the past four years (and was also a student of the Pro Track program for the first two), moving from substitute coach to session class coach and now working as a Pro Track Coach.
Tell us about your background, accomplishments, career highlights, and what brought you to NECCA. Please brag about yourself!
I found and fell in love with circus right after graduating from undergrad and starting a career in the domestic violence field. I ended up finishing my MA degree in Human Rights before fully committing to run away with the circus. I joke now that burying myself in crippling debt was my first step towards becoming a real artist, but I’m truly grateful to have come to circus as an older athlete and with some real world experience under my belt. I like to think that I bring a passion for social justice with me to my circus practice, and performance art activism interests me greatly!
What is something most people don’t know about you?
I hate pickles and mustard. I’m terrified of grasshoppers. All of my tattoos are stick n pokes done by friends.
What do you love about NECCA and how did you first hear about us?
I heard about NECCA from my early aerial coaches. NECCA sounded like the most magical place where the coolest people went to train. Being accepted as a student at NECCA felt like an immense achievement. Becoming part of the coaching staff has been such an honor. Having my idols turn into teachers turn into peers and colleagues makes me feel very lucky!
Mark your calendars!
