Education: Working towards a BFA in Dance with a secondary teaching certification.

Dance Background & Experience: I started dancing at age 6 at Shirley McPhail School of Dance in Austin, TX training in tap, ballet, and jazz.

For my first year of college I was on a dance team called Roustabouts which was a hip hop based team. And now I’m a DCC. Man does time fly!

One thing most people would be surprised to learn is... I collect postcards. I started collecting them when I was 10 or so, I pick up new ones anytime I’m on vacation. They bring back wonderful memories of places I’ve been.

Dream Job: My dream job is to have a show on the Travel Channel with my mom and two sisters. Being able to travel to exotic places, meeting new people, and trying new things for a living? I’m so in!

Dream Vacation Destination: I would love to travel to Greece. The water looks so beautiful there.

Why did you decide to audition for the DCC?: I had the idea to try out all throughout high school and first year of college. My parents encouraged me to go for it and with a little (okay big) push from my family and friends, I tried out and made it on my first round! I firmly believe everything happens for a reason and I am so blessed this was part of God’s plan for me!

What are some of your DCC highlights?: Being able to carry on and be part of the legacy of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders is incredible. I love everything from game days, to rehearsals, to the charity work. The life of a DCC isn’t always a glamorous one, but it’s a life I wouldn’t trade for the world.

Advice for someone who dreams of becoming a DCC: Go for it! One of my favorite quotes says this, “Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.”
