Having loved math and science in high school, I wanted to study a STEM field in college. I went to Villanova University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and later from the University of Phoenix with an MBA. For years, I worked as an engineer and, then, manager at Honeywell. Although the hours were long and the workload was demanding, I loved my job and found it very rewarding, but with three little ones at home at the time. Read more>>

Chris aka: Stone Daniel

I’m a man of Christian faith believing that love is the center of all that which is good and that God is at the center of love. Since I was 12, I can remember offering advice to my peers and those younger and older than me about knowing who God is, as best we can in this life, and loving one another as best we can. That counseling spirit at a very young age has led me into the role that I have in life today. Professionally, I have been a consultant and trainer for an organization called Families And Schools Together. Read more>>>

Francisco Monarrez

I grew up in Glendale, Arizona with my parents and sisters. I’m the oldest of the bunch. I went to school here until I was able to transfer from GCC to ASU back in 2016. I went to ASU to study film and graduated with my BA back in late 2018. Before I got into film, I was using dance as my creative outlet. It was a great way to meet people, be creative, and have fun without talking much. I loved it. Read more>>

Our family grew up and danced in the West Valley. Our mother is an Early Childhood Education specialist and had worked part-time in the office for our hometown dance studio. That’s how we were able to afford all of us dancing. We grew up going to dance every night and revolving our lives around our dance schedule. It was truly a family affair. Our father was a part of the annual “Dad’s dance”, and our younger brother even took classes. We became known as the Bravo dance family. Read more>>

Baylee Pfister

I grew up an athlete, I was always playing some type of sport. I continued on to be a collegiate athlete at Northern Arizona University. I was on the competitive cheer team and won a national title in 2014, then retired from the sport. Without sports, I knew I had to stay active and begin going to the gym frequently. I did not truly know what I was doing or how to exercise properly. What was happening is I was overtraining and under-eating. Read more>>
