“To be in a position where I was chasing Christine Baranski around and getting a talking to from Dolly Parton was just more than a girl could ever dream of.”
She’s been dancing since age three and has studied ballet, flamenco, jazz, acrobatics, hip-hop, modern and contemporary dance. As an actress, she has brought her style and sophistication to a host of roles including Dr. Sam Bello on Grey’s Anatomy and Liz Ortecho on Roswell, New Mexico.
