One thing most people would be surprised to learn is... I went to eight different schools before finishing ninth grade.

Dream Job: I can’t tell you. I don’t want to jinx it.

Why did you decide to audition for the DCC?: I was introduced to the DCC organization through my dance team in high school. We competed at the annual DCC competition.

What are your favorite DCC traditions?: Obviously, the friendships. They’ll stay with me forever… And getting to go on USO Tours. Being a military brat, there is no greater feeling than being able to give back to the service men and women who sacrifice everything for our freedom….. including our freedom to play football on Sundays.

Advice for someone who dreams of becoming a DCC: There’s no formula for the “perfect DCC”. We are always looking for uniqueness.
