I coach aerial circus arts at sparrow studios in Olympia, WA. I have been teaching since 2016; my students describe me as encouraging, fun, safe, and inspiring, with particular attention to quality of movement and form.
I'm a coaching generalist and have taught beginning to intermediate level students on aerial silks, sling, rope, trapeze, and lyra (aerial hoop), and begining straps and juggling.

I had a blast in you class & really appreciated doing something outside of work and family. Good reminder to do things just for me! It was also really fun to watch the others build their strength & skill over the course of the session. I attribute all of that to you— you’re an awesome instructor: great cuing, patience, demonstrations & you inspire confidence. - Intro to Aerial student, February 2020
..I am pining to be once again immersed in that community of strong, dedicated, creative, inspiring human beings. Thank you for being encouraging & inspiring, I feel deeply blessed to have had an opportunity to learn from you & feel motivated to push myself even more! -- Continuing Beginner student, May 2020
I started training as a circus artist in 2011 in Olympia, and moved to Chicago in 2012 where I trained at Aloft Circus Arts (coaches included Leah Leor (straps, handstands), Kasumi Kato (silks, act development), and Dana Dugan (trapeze)). in 2017 I moved back to olympia and started teaching alongside sara sparrow at sparrow studios; I currently take lessons with PJ Perry (rope), Leah Jones (straps) and Anna Thomas-Henry (active flex).
