Everyday Hero Award

It was such an honor to be nominated and recognized by my students at William Paterson University as an Everyday Hero – an honor created to show appreciation to faculty that went above and beyond to inspire and support students.

I would not be where I am without my own teachers and mentors who pushed me to be better when they saw room for growth, who grounded me as I branched into new directions and explorations, and supported me as a whole person. They not only taught me dance, but led by example, cared about me as an individual, and shared an amazing passion for life!

So thank you to all of those who have changed and inspired me as well!
