"Along with teaching dance at Knox College I serve as the director for Midwest Dance Group in Galesburg, Illinois. My interests in the dance field revolve around making community connections through teaching and performing dance in partnership with local organizations. The work and research that I do in the local community creates opportunities for students to further develop their dance experiences through internship and independent study. At the start of 2009, I created Dance Immersion, a Dance Intensive program for Galesburg youth in collaboration with the Galesburg Civic Art Center. Outside of the local community, I am a recognized artist on the Illinois Arts Council Arts-In-Education Artist Roster."
