Hey there, it's Karissa! I was born and raised in Southern California and am currently pursuing my dream of being a professional dancer. I started dancing when I was 8 years old and was quick to fall in love with it. Other than dancing you can find me working out or playing with animals. I'm a huge animal lover, cats being my favorite! My other life dream would be to work with animals in any capacity; whether it being to help save them,  foster them, conservation, etc. Another favorite thing I like to do is eat dessert, I have the biggest sweet tooth ever. I love sugar cookies, brown sugar milk tea, thai tea ice cream, lava cakes, and that's all just to name a few. I'm a huge fan of scary movies and also love a good romantic comedy. On a day off you can catch me binge watching any of my favorite shows consisting of This Is Us, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, Insecure, The Handmaid's Tale, or Ozark. Other than that, you can catch me taking a nap... that's one of my most favorite things of all!
