What are the first three things that you do every morning?

Go to my daughter’s room, hug her as my husband hands me coffee.

What's your perfect day?

The days I get to experience and give back kindness in some way.

I love San Francisco because...

It’s a big, open-minded, free-spirited city surrounded by stunning nature. It's where I feel at home.

What inspired you to keep dancing during the COVID-19 lockdown?

My colleagues. Also, getting back to my own body after a rough postpartum journey.

What are some of your favorite roles or ballets you've danced while at SF Ballet?

Lilac fairy, the queen in the cage, stepmom in Cinderella, Carabosse, and Mercedes in Don Quixote.
