Lee Award and a New York City Center Choreography Fellowship. Most recently she was selected Grand Prize Winner of the S&R Foundation's Washington Award.

A native of Savannah, GA, she trained at the Boston Ballet School and was a longtime soloist at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal. In 2009 she was invited by Christopher Wheeldon to join his company Morphoses in New York City. Her repertoire as a performer has also included principal roles in works by George Balanchine, Jiri Kylian, Mats Ek, Ohad Naharin, Nacho Duato, Luca Veggetti, Shen Wei, and Pontus Lidberg.
