She teaches Ballroom, Latin, Swing and jazz dance classes there and in the community.

She began her dancing life as a Modern dancer and performed with Oregon Dance for about 15 years. Music and dance are her passions and she feels so fortunate to have been able to pursue a career in the field that she loves. She teaches Adult social dance classes through Timberhill Athletic Club (Corvallis) on Wednesdayevenings. These classes are open to the community. She also teaches a class called "Mostly Jazz," which she has taught for 31 years and which still includes some women who have been with her for all 31 years! This class is a mix of her Modern, Jazz and Ballet background. She teaches private lessons, also.
