Occupation: Administrative Assistant/ Sales Associate

Education: B.S. Chemistry

Hobbies: I really enjoy reading and going to sporting events. I just love the atmosphere in a stadium; I would go to a game every day if I could!

Favorites:

  • Former Player: Tom Landry. I really respect and admire his work ethic. Fun Fact: when my mom and I visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame, I took a picture with Tom Landry’s bronze head! It was awesome!
  • Movie: Spaceballs!! I love stupid humor!
  • DFW Area Restaurant: I don’t think I could pick just one! But I’m always down for some Chinese or BBQ!!
  • Article of Clothing: Cowboy boots! Duh ;-)
  • Phone App: I have 2: MapMyRun, because it’s just awesome! And the Kindle app, because I love to read and really enjoy having all my books with me wherever I go!
  • Cartoon Character: How can you pick just one Disney Princess?? If I had to pick… my top three would be Snow White, Belle, and Cinderella!
  • TV Show: Outside of Twilight I’m not a huge vampire fanatic, but I’m beginning to become obsessed with True Blood!
  • Holiday: Fourth of July!! I love celebrating our country and spending time with my family!

One thing most people would be surprised to learn is... I shoot a semi-automatic handgun competitively!

Dream Job: I would love to work in a research and development lab synthesizing and formulating new things! Not sure what those new things are yet, but I really enjoy being at the frontier of science and blazing a trail!

Dream Vacation Destination: Anywhere my family is! If my family is there, I’m having a good time!

Why did you decide to audition for the DCC?: I had to know what it was like to wear those white boots! But seriously, I knew I wanted to be a DCC when I decided that professional cheerleading was for me. To be a part of America’s Team and grace the sidelines with THE Dallas Cowboys, there’s nothing that compares!

What are some of your DCC highlights?: All my beautiful friends! But seriously, the friendships I’ve made on this team are priceless! I love the games, and photo shoots, and half-times, and appearances, but it is the amazing women I stand next to that make this a truly unique experience. I have met so many wonderful, talented, sweet, and kind young women that I will keep in my life forever! And that has made this time in my life so amazing!!!

Advice for someone who dreams of becoming a DCC: I would tell them to dream big and plan for the future! Being a DCC is a wonderful experience, but you also need to have a plan for life after cheerleading! Work hard on the dance floor, and harder in the classroom!
