First Job: My love for children developed at a young age when I started babysitting at 13. I enjoyed caring for children of all ages, which inspired me to become a teacher!

Dance background: I started dancing at the age of three, and feel so blessed to be able to continue my passion at the professional level with the MVC.

Favorite type of music: My favorite genre of music is rock! Avenged Sevenfold, Five Finger Death Punch, Imagine Dragons, and Slash are a few of my favorites!

Favorite phone app: I spend WAY TOO MUCH time on Pinterest. It’s definitely my go to time killer.

Celebrity crush: My celebrity crush is Channing Tatum…Handsome looks + killer dance moves = AWESOME

Junk Food weakness: Anything chocolate is my weakness! If I could eat cake, cookies and ice cream for every meal, I would be the happiest person on earth!

I've always wanted to: I've always wanted to Scuba dive! I’ve gone snorkeling before, but would love the chance to explore the beautiful reefs and sea life up close.

One place I would love to travel to: I want to visit New Zealand more than anything! I am a huge Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia fan, and would love the opportunity to see the beautiful landscapes in person.

Off the field, I spend my free time: I like to spend my free time off the field relaxing with my fiancée. We love to watch movies, work out at the gym together and go fishing.

Best beauty secret: The secret to perfect makeup application is all about the tools that you use. I highly recommend investing in a great set of brushes, and remember to clean them often.

Favorite thing to do in Mpls: My fiancée and I love to rent the green bikes and explore new areas of Minneapolis. We recently biked over the St. Anthony’s Main and ate at the cutest café overlooking the river.

Favorite restaurant in Mpls: My favorite restaurant is Wildfire, which is actually located in Eden Prairie. The food and service is amazing and it has become our “go to” place for dinner.

My hidden talent is: My hidden talent is that I can sail! I grew up racing sailboats on Lake Minnetonka and would travel around the Midwest for regattas.

One thing I wish I was great at: I really wish I could sing! I come from a very musical family, but regretfully did not inherit the singing gene.

Dream job: I am so fortunate to go to work every day, because teaching really is my dream job. Each and every day, I get to stretch my creativity, build meaningful relationships with my students and learn from them.

Greatest achievement: I have two greatest achievements to date. First I am incredibly thankful that after graduating with a B.A. Degree in Elementary Education from Luther College, I was able to obtain my own classroom in one of the elementary schools in my hometown. My second greatest achievement is being a part of the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders for three seasons.

Best thing about being an MVC: The best part about being an MVC is the opportunity to be part of something bigger than you. Knowing that you are a piece of the puzzle, which provides fans with excitement and entertainment on the field and in the community is beyond rewarding.
