Hi Cardinals fans!
Wow, it sure is great to back! This is my 3rd year with the Cardinals and I feel like I've had the best of both worlds; Cheering the last year at Sun Devil stadium (2005), first year at the new stadium (2006) and now I'm wrapping up my last year with the 2009 season.
I have thoroughly enjoyed growing up here in Arizona! However, after graduating high school I had the urge to fulfill my dancing bug and ventured off to LA to pursue it! I was lucky enough to receive one of the 13 scholarships offered that year to study at the EDGE Performing Arts Center in Hollywood. This was a very exciting yet challenging year for me as I was tested to the max both physically and mentally. I am extremely fortunate and thankful as this experience in particular has helped me see my true potential as a performer in addition to preparing me for many exciting opportunities I've come to along the way…
During the 2006 season cheering for the Cardinals, our Show-team was given the opportunity to go on an Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE) tour, which allowed us to travel for two weeks to four different countries: Portugal, Egypt, Turkey and then finally, Italy. It was one of the best experiences and incredible moments of my life. When I returned, I felt a need to continue offering support in some way and have since participated in many local and international events that aim to support our soldiers which include 3 over seas tours to the Middle East.
Outside of cheering, I maintain a very busy lifestyle including my current career as a Dental clinician, teaching dance and making my transition into the medical field to be a surgical nurse which includes sustaining a very demanding school schedule. Once I graduate, I hope to continue my involvement with our military and look forward in offering my services as a contracted nurse with the ARMY.
Those of you who do not know me, I am a huge fan of change, travel and once in a lifetime opportunities! I live for the moment and thrive on new adventures that allow me to add yet another "life experience" under my belt as I am convinced there are no accidents in this world. There are so many spectacular avenues I've traveled because of the creative outlet Cardinals has offered me. I am both grateful and thrilled to take part in yet another fun-filled season with the Arizona Cardinals as we do have some unfinished business to take care of!
Go Cards Go!!!
