​Dance background: I began dancing in high school where I was a part of the cheer, dance and pom team. I then went on to dance for the Phoenix Suns Dancers for three years.

What personal accomplishment are you most proud of? Going back to my old high school to coach. It is one of the most challenging yet rewarding jobs I have had. Although, it feels great to give back to the program that gave me my start in dance.

What does being an AZCC mean to you? I feel so honored to have earned a position as an AZCC where I can be a positive role model for so many women. Not only can I be a role model to others, but the amazing women I get to share this journey with inspire me every day. 

Three words that best describe you: Fun-loving, ambitious and kind.

What are you looking forward to most this season as a Cardinals Cheerleader? Getting out into the community and meeting all the amazing and dedicated Cardinals fans! It is such a gift to be able to give back to those who make our job what it is. 

What advice would you give your younger self? Don’t be too hard on yourself!! Every obstacle you face puts you that much closer to becoming a better YOU. Accept it, breathe, and know everything turns out for the best.
