  • Why did you become an It Takes Two! celebrity dancer?

    Suzanne Hamilton introduced me to this amazing organization.  ERIEBANK and Impressia Bank are divisions of the same parent company, CNB Financial. I am following a line of “bankers” and am proud to join!  I love an adventure and a worthy cause. I’ve had a great time taking risks for worthy causes including an Urban Rapel down a skyscraper in Buffalo in 2021 to benefit the United Way

    How has it been working with your GroundWorks dance partner?

    Delightful – Matthew has been helpful teaching me technique, and is making this a collaborative experience

    What has surprised you about the creative process?

    How open and unstructured it is. We can go any direction we want.

    What about dance in general connects with you?

    How quickly you can raise your vibe and connect with others while dancing.

    Why should people vote for you?

    I lead one of the few financial organizations in the country dedicated to the financial and professional development of women. By voting for me, you are giving your stamp of approval to the important work that we are doing right here in Cleveland and will help us get the word out about Impressia Bank.  We appreciate your support!
