Charlotte cut her teeth in the Pacific Northwest burlesque scene, where she has been connected to the resurgence of what is now the burgeoning burlesque scene of Portland, Oregon. As founding member of Rose City Shimmy, the performance collective that raised the bar and awareness of burlesque in the strip club capitol of the united states, Charlotte soon was garnering national praise.

As the dance manager and company dancer for Orchestre L'Pow! Charlotte stayed true to her classic roots, and reveled in bringing together top notch burlesque stars with the West Coast's premier pit band. Truly "Bump and Grind for the Sophisticated Set"

Charlotte is well known for her extravagant props and opulent costuming. Her most celebrated acts include "L'heure Verte" where she performs alongside a fifteen foot tall absinthe fountain, and "East of the Moon" where she truly is the Queen of a Winter's Eve, with her Burton-esque fireplace and larger than life polar-bear skin rug.

In addition to performing, Charlotte is also a costumer, with an exquisite eye for detail. She has costumed some of the nations most illustrious Glitteratti, most notably Perle Noire, who wore a Treuse creation in 2012 when she won "Most Dazzling" at the elite Burlesque Hall of Fame competition. Charlotte's costumes have also been seen on Perle during the Dita Von Teese "Strip, Strip Hooray" tour.

Charlotte has been seen across the county, performing for critically acclaimed conventions and festivals, including The Burlesque Hall of Fame, Tease-O-Rama, Viva Las Vegas, The New Orleans Burlesque Festival, Ink-N-Iron, Hot August Nights, The Show-Me Burlsque Festival, The Kansas City Burlesque Festival, and many, many more.

She has been featured in such publications as The Times-Picayune, Burlesque Seattle Press, The Burlesque Bible, 21st Century Burlesque, Rabid, The Gambit, Omega, Just Out and The Mercury.
In 2012 she graced the front cover of Brian C. Janes' highly anticipated book "It's All That Glitters", and was named by the UK's Burlesque Bible magazine as one "of the world's brightest burlesque stars whose careers are set to sparkle over the next few years"
In 2013 and 2014 both she won the title of Burlesque Princess at the highly competitive New Orleans International Burlesque Festival.

Now she makes her home stage at New Orleans' own House of Blues with Bustout Burlesque, and is thrilled with all the possibilities and promises of The Crescent City.
