She first started training in the circus arts as a teenager with Vermont’s Circus Smirkus Summer Camp, and has since pursued aerial and circus training in Austin and elsewhere. She has completed extensive aerial teacher training as well as the Intensive Track Program, with a focus in trapeze and handstands, at the New England Center for Circus Arts.
