Jade is originally from Gilbert, Arizona but grew to love California through her time at Chapman University where she received her B.S. in Business Administration and minor in Dance. She is obsessed with plants, hiking, reading, and her dog, Charlie. She made the move out to LA this past spring to pursue the dance industry, and recently got hired as a member of the LA Clippers Spirit Dance Team for 2021-22. She is so grateful and excited for all the new opportunities (like this!) to collaborate with other dancers and creatives!
Jade is looking forward to all the new ideas and projects that will come about from being an SBA Ambassador, and working to create something fun and unique!
