I’m Conner! I tend to be a bit bashful, but like to open myself up to the world and its experiences, never taking life too seriously. I grew up in a small town located in Southern Illinois, called St. Louis, Missouri home for almost eight years, and now reside in Southern California. I have a bachelor’s degree in fashion merchandising, and a natural affinity to anything involving clothes. Most of my days are spent cuddling my cat Baker, working for the team, or filling my apartment with the scent of chocolate chip cookies. I try my best to enjoy the little things and little moments of life.
In 2015, two weeks after I graduated college, I was involved in a car accident, leaving me with life-threatening internal injuries and multiple spinal fractures. I’ve been a dancer since the age of 5. I danced my way through both high school and college. Life with my spinal cord injury felt completely different from my life as an able-bodied person, and created this huge sense of loss within myself. Discovering the Rollettes after my injury was a defining moment, and cultivated this feeling in me that I could once again dance my way through life.
