Ballerina, Food Writer, Founder of Choreography in the Kitchen

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR COMMUNITY?
I have been living and working in Boston for eleven years now. This entire city is my community and I love the dedication and loyalty that people come to feel toward Boston. The genuine application of effort, intelligence and a massive sense of unrealized, but very realizable, potential is pervasive.  

HOW DO YOU HOPE TO EFFECT POSITIVE CHANGE IN OUR COMMUNITY?
I think everyone has the best chance at effecting positive change when they focus on their areas of passion and strength. For me, that is not only within the arts and food communities, but in connecting and collaborating beyond these in ways which have not yet been done. My new business focuses on just this - creating programs that get people in all kinds of working environments moving and dancing!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
People. Everyday. 
And really amazing art. And food:)

WHAT GIVES YOU HOPE?
People's ability to inspire change both in themselves and in others. 
Boston is a small city and it can often feel like you know everything, you become comfortable with things and then all of a sudden, you are reminded that you actually know very little - that we can always learn and grow together, is what gives me hope.
