Dance background:  I grew up as a studio dancer since the age of three. Along with that, I was involved in my high school cheer and dance teams for four years. I continued to pursue my passion of dance throughout college. I was a member of the Grand Canyon University dance team for four years and a captain for two years. Go Lopes!

What personal accomplishment are you most proud of? I am most proud of my job by pursing my passion in fitness and nutrition working with clients to develop a healthy lifestyle. 

What does being an AZCC mean to you?  As a Cardinals Cheerleader I am constantly being encouraged and supported by so many inspiring women. Every time I put on my uniform I am reminded of what a privilege it is to represent such an amazing organization. 

Three words that best describe you: Joyful, optimistic, and adventurous 

What are you looking forward to most this season as a Cardinals Cheerleader? I am excited to experience game day with all my sisters. Nothing compares to the overall energy throughout the stadium and interacting with the best fans in the NFL!

What advice would you give your younger self? Do not worry about trying to "fit in". Fitting out is being yourself. It’s celebrating your unique differences and it will bring you lifelong happiness.

Personal motto/Favorite Quote: Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart." 

Favorite memory as a Cardinals Cheerleader:  Dancing with the Breast Cancer Survivors. It was truly an honor to celebrate their life journeys and to unite together by waving the breast cancer flag.
