Dance experience: I started dancing at the age of two and have danced competitively in a variety of dance styles throughout my life. I was also a member of my high school pom and dance team. I continued dancing professionally in college and also worked for the NHL Arizona Coyotes for three seasons. I am thrilled to be on the Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders for a second season.

Three words that best describe you: Compassionate, personable and hardworking

Favorite part of being a Cardinals Cheerleader: I would have to say game day because it encompasses so much. I love that I get to show up early and spend the entire day bonding and working hard with my teammates. We practice before every game on the field and I love how calm the stadium feels because I know once the Bird Gang shows up, the stadium will be electrifying. Then comes appearances out on the Great Lawn. If you need a place to get pumped up for game day, just head over to the Great Lawn, because Cardinals fans are ecstatic and ready to dominate game day! It is so fun to interact with fans and learn about all of the amazing people that make up our Cardinals family. However, there is nothing more thrilling than running out of the tunnel on game day. Cheering on the sidelines for my favorite team is what we work hard for all season long. It is so rewarding to do what I love and am so passionate about!

Something on the top of my bucket list is: To swim with dolphins.

Place I’d most like to travel to: I would love to travel throughout Europe with my family.
 
Besides dancing, I’m a very talented: Crafter. I am a huge fan of snail mail, and I love making handmade cards for my friends and family.
 
What famous person would you want to have dinner with & why? Jimmy Kimmel because I love his sense of humor.
 
First job: My first job was working as a lifeguard during the summer with all of my best friends.
 
What are you most proud of in your life? I am proud to be a registered nurse. I work in a high acuity environment and am proud of the care that I provide to my patients and their families.

Personal motto/Favorite Quote: My family has a quote that we have lived by ever since I was a child, BVKTE, meaning Be Very Kind To Everyone. I also love the verse, “Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you." - 2 Corinthians 13:11
