Dance Background & Experience: I’ve taken dance classes for almost my entire life, but I really started getting into it when I was in fifth grade.

I also received my degree in dance from Texas Tech to pursue a career in dance movement therapy.

One thing most people would be surprised to learn is... I’m obsessed with dogs! I own at least 20 dog books, and know everything about every breed!

Biggest Fear: Spiders. I HATE spiders.

What would be your superpower?: ? I would want to be able to run at the speed of lightning. That would definitely come in handy sometimes!

Most Embarrassing Moment: One time I was late to a movie, which is already awkward as it is. Then as I was walking across to find my seat, I tripped and fell right in front of the screen. The entire theatre chuckled!

Dream Job: My dream job is to be a dance movement therapist and own a studio for children with disabilities.

Dream Vacation Destination: Fiji!

Why did you decide to audition for the DCC?: I always admired the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders as a little girl. I decided that I wanted to be a part of a team where I could not only continue my passion for dance, but also be a positive role model for girls around the world!

What are some of your DCC highlights?: I have made everlasting friendships with some of the most amazing women from all over the world. Because of our diverse backgrounds, we all have unique differences, but we all share the same passion for dance and the Dallas Cowboys organization.

Advice for someone who dreams of becoming a DCC: Don’t ever think that it isn’t possible. If it truly is your dream, go for it! Stretch, take dance classes, know your Cowboys history, and brush up on some football terminology! You can never be too prepared!
