Hey Cardinals fans! My name is Tessa and this is my first year as a Cardinals Cheerleader. I grew up in Arizona from the age of 3, and it wasn’t long before my love for dance began.
To get to this point in my life, I have taken 16 years of dance and had the opportunity to tour the country with a competitive dance studio. I enjoyed cheering in high school and then continued dancing in college while pursuing my degree in Fine Arts-Dance Education. I stay busy working two part time jobs; teaching dance and cheer to young children, and being a personal nanny.
Being a dance teacher, I’m especially looking forward to the Jr. Cheer Program this year to pass on my passion and joy of performing to the kids. It feels amazing to achieve my lifelong dream of being an NFL cheerleader. I am extremely grateful for the ability and opportunity to be a part of this organization. As a rookie I have big shoes to fill (or should I say boots!) and I couldn’t be more excited! Here’s to a winning season!!!
