I’m proud of myself for recovering from two major hip injuries throughout my career. I had to have surgery on my left in 2013 and the right in 2020. It was so difficult, I would not recommend it! But it’s made me a stronger person and I still managed to land a job with my dream company. I used to never tell anyone about my surgeries, but if I can inspire someone in a similar situation, I think it’s worth it to share my experience.
What significance does being part of PNB during the 50th anniversary have to you?
My mom and I used to have season tickets to PNB when I was in high school, and we would road trip from Portland to see shows a few times a year. I fell in love with this company and its unique dancers and rep. I feel so lucky to be on the other side of the curtain now, especially during this special anniversary season. It’s been super rewarding so far, and I can’t wait for what the rest of the season holds!
