WHAT IS YOUR DANCING BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE? I started dancing around the age of 3. I did competitive/studio dance until I graduated high school, training in all styles.

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC? I have looked up to the DCC since I was a young girl and my dad talked about meeting them on USO tours. Along with being incredibly talented, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders represent everything I strive to be as a woman. I always dreamt that I could join such an elite group of high-achieving ambassadors and role-models.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A PART OF DCC? I love being surrounded by a group of strong, determined women that genuinely cheer each other on in every aspect of life. This bond and sisterhood is something I have never experienced, and I am thankful every day to perform next to each and every one of these women.
PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: Earning a spot on this incredible team and getting attending my dream graduate school.
IN 10 YEARS FROM NOW I WILL … be working as a licensed counselor for veterans and their families, hopefully married with a family of my own.
