I was born in Millington, TN but consistently moved around the world due to my father being active duty Navy. I took my first dance class at the age of three and competed regionally and nationally all through grade school. I was Captain of my college dance team at Villa Julie College in Stevenson, MD and turned the program from a club to a national competing team under the NCAA.
After transferring to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and graduating in 2006 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration, I joined the United States Army and was commissioned as an officer in April 2007. I deployed to Balad, Iraq in December 2007 for a 16 month tour as a Platoon Leader.
In 2010 I transferred from Active Duty to the Army Reserves and currently reside in Scottsdale, AZ. I work full time as an Operations Specialist for the Department of the Army and serve as a Company Commander for my Army Reserve Unit. This is my first year as a Cardinals Cheerleader and I am ecstatic and honored to be a part of such an amazing organization.
