I started at Gracie Barra at 11 years old, and it quickly became a passion of mine that has stuck with me over the past 8 years and will continue to be a part of my future. I am now a certified instructor and enjoy being able to inspire others on and off the mats. When I am not on the mats I can be found reading, spending time with friends and family, and improving my physical fitness.View Instructor
