When did you know you wanted to be a princess party performer?
I knew I wanted to be a performer when I was 9 years old. My mom signed me up for a summer camp at Cinnabar Theater. It was a 12 week intensive camp where all the kids would learn songs and dances from 9-3 or so and it culminated in 6 performances at the end of summer for the parents to come see. I did it 7 years in a row, and then continued to do shows outside of that as well as take classes. I was hooked!
Favorite food is hands down, sushi! Every day, all day if I could afford it. My favorite movie is The Notebook, because I’m a romantic, and I love Ryan Gosling. ( and Rachel McAdams too!)
What are five things you can’t live with out?
My daughter, my husband, my mom, my deodorant and of course, water. (I had to add something practical)
Other than performing, what are you passionate about?
I am passionate about motherhood. Being a mom is an honor and a privilege. Since the day Emmalina was born I have felt peace within my heart. She brings me endless joy. I truly believe that the purpose of life is to create life, so that life goes on. The fact that we as women are able to literally create a life inside of us, let alone deliver it into this world and start from scratch with a brand new human soul is the most beautiful precious thing in this world.
