When I started pole 12 years ago I never imagined that it would lead me to where I am now. I feel so lucky to be out of Corporate America and growing in the Pole, Aerial and Circus Industry. Everyday I get to work with incredible people, helping them master their movement, bodies and businesses. This journey has allowed me to grow as a competitor, as a professional aerialist, as a coach and as a judge. The next level of this journey led me last year to become a judge for the US Pole Sports Federation (USPSF) who is the recognized governing body of Pole Sport in the USA as determined by the USA Sports Council. I am the first and only BLACK USPSF Certified Judge (woot woot). Stepping into the judging role for USPSF opened another door of opportunity and I am now the Athlete Chair for USPSF! I am so honored to join this organization as Athlete Chair and support our amazing Athletes! This is not only an honor but also a responsibility that I take seriously. It is vital that we get more BIPOC individuals as coaches, judges and higher ups in these organizations.
