What personal accomplishment are you most proud of? I am very proud that I just purchased my first home! 

What does being an AZCC mean to you? Being an AZCC means surrounding myself with women who push me to be the best version of myself. It means fulfilling a lifelong dream and being able to do what I love. It also means being a part of something that is much bigger than myself.

Three words that best describe you: Compassionate, Committed, and Approachable

What are you looking forward to most this season as a Cardinals Cheerleader? I’m excited to run out of the tunnel for our home opener and be able to see our new roster bring home wins!

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

Favorite memory as a Cardinals Cheerleader: My favorite memories always surround our visit to Phoenix Children’s Hospital during Christmas time. Being able to take their focus off of being in the hospital and bring joy into their day is always so special.
