I was born and raised in Southern California. My Father, retired from the navy, worked at a Marine Base that closed down which relocated my family to the great state of Arizona when I was 13. My passion for dance was sparked by the movie “Annie”. Shortly after watching the movie I talked my mom into taking me to my first dance class at the young age of four.
I have trained in all areas of dance and also grew up dancing competitively.
In junior high and high school I stayed busy playing volleyball and basketball and was very involved in the Spirit line as well as the dance program. After graduating from high school I took my love and passion for dance with me to Arizona State University where I was on the Dance Team for 4 years while earning my BFA in Dance.
I spent a summer traveling the west coast instructing summer camps to junior high and high school dance teams working for Universal Dance Association. I danced for the Arizona Ratters for two seasons, and still continue to teach and choreograph to high school dance teams, dance programs, and studios around the valley.
One of my most fulfilling accomplishments was winning the title of Miss Philippines Arizona in 2007. This experience allowed me to travel to the Philippines to learn more about my heritage and culture. During my stay I coordinated a charitable dance workshop for students at a high school in Quezon City, Philippines. Their happiness and free spirits while learning and dancing amazed me and was one of the best teaching experiences I could have ever asked for.
This is my first year as a Cardinals Cheerleader and I could not be more excited. I am so honored to be cheering with a group of phenomenal and inspiring women. I can’t wait to see you all at the games! GO CARDS!
