My first job: Dance teacher

Three words to describe me: Determined, Passionate, Kind-hearted

My biggest fear: Tripping as we run out of the tunnel for the opening ceremony…knock on wood that it never happens!!

My hobbies: When I am not dancing I love to hang out with my teammates, strength train at Discover Strength, and add a little GLAM to anything with some rhinestones!

My dream job: To be an NFL Cheerleading Coach.  To be able to put on a 3 hour production during my favorite sport in front of thousands of fans and create an atmosphere that consumes the audience would be a dream come true.

My best beauty secret is: HEAT PROTECTANT!!!  With the amount of styling I do to always look and feel my best I need to really protect my hair from all the damage I am doing to it.  So besides a good conditioner and my visits to the wonderful Spalon Montage I make sure to always use a heat protectant when styling my hair.

Fans would be surprised to know: I have won 2 National Dance Team Titles with the amazing University of Minnesota Duluth Dance Team, and we are the only team to compete without a coach. 

On the top of my bucket list is: Dancing at the Super Bowl!  I love cheering for the Vikings and being a part of this amazing organization and I could not be more excited to cheer on my favorite team to victory.  SKOL!!

Words I live by: Never stop improving!

My greatest achievement: Making the Top 10 at this year’s Semi-Final Pageant.  To be select out of 60 amazing, beautiful, and talented women was such an honor and to be able to share that moment with the 9 other contestants who are great friends will be something I remember for the rest of my life.

My hero: My amazing dance teacher Michele Larkin-Wagner.  Her compassion, love, and dedication to her students and everyone around her is inspiring, and the life lessons I have learned from her will stay with me forever.  She is one of the most influential people in my life and I would not be who I am today, both as a dancer and a person, without her.
