Personal Background

Married to Sam Mills and have four children: Reagan, Lucas, Gus, and Emmeline who all either attend or will attend Maroa-Forsyth Schools. I have taught Social Studies at Eisenhower High School since 2004. I began dancing in 1992 while attending Maroa-Forsyth Schools, and am a proud alum of MFHS, Class of 1998. I have worked professionally in dance as a choreographer, judge, technique consultant, and/or coach since 1999. I am also active in the musical theatre programs at both Maroa-Forsyth and Eisenhower.


In my years as head coach of the MFHS Trojanettes, our team has made many post-season appearances and placed in the top 5 at IDTA State several times. We have 2 state runner up trophies in the lyrical category.

Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen.
