Originally born in Indiana, I moved to the valley with my family when I was six years old. Growing up my passion was soccer. Eventually I turned in my cleats for cheer shoes becoming a member of a competitive cheer squad where I fell in love with cheer and dance.
In high school I was a member of my high school’s Pom Squad as well as the Performance Dance Club for three years. I was selected Captain and President my senior year. After high school I continued my passion for dance and spent one season as an Arizona Rattlers Sidewinder and two seasons as a Phoenix Suns Dancer. I am currently now in my third season with the Cardinals.
When I am not busy practicing my dance moves I work as an Administrative Assistant at one of Arizona’s local banks. Through my work I have been able to volunteer in several organizations including JDRF, the Arthritis Foundation and St. Vincent De Paul. I love to help out my community in anyway possible and I am always the first to lend a hand.
Some of my hobbies include hiking, traveling, shopping and spending time with my family and friends. I recently married the man of my dreams. I love spending time with him and our two dogs, Nala and Dakota. I also enjoy hanging out with my two siblings; a younger brother and an older sister who is currently a member of the United States Navy stationed in Okinawa, Japan. I am extremely proud of my sister for dedicating her life for our country. I am a huge supporter of the military and what all branches represent.
I have spent the past two seasons as a member of the Show Team, a special performance group that travels to support our men and women in the military. It means the world to me to be able to personally thank those who serve. One of my favorite trips we take is our annual visit to Ft. Hood, Texas. It is a trip I look forward to all season! God Bless our Military!
I am really excited and honored to be a member of such an amazing group of women. I am looking forward to all of the wonderful things that being an Arizona Cardinals Cheerleader brings! Look out 2012 AZCC is taking over!
