She is an avid swimmer and dancer as well, and that’s how she likes to keep fit; after all, she is a burlesque perfomer and wants to keep her bod in tip top shape. When she is not chasing after her adorable 2lb chihuahua, Harley, she can be found tending to her gardens. She is also all about lifting up and representing the trans community, and she runs an artful drop in for trans youth here at SKETCH where she is also an alumni from the Community Arts program.
