Quote: “Let us praise him with dance.” - Psalm 149:3

Place I’ve traveled and why: Sweden! My brother was in Clash of Nations, which is a snowcross race with athletes from around the world.

Charity and why: I haven't had the opportunity to be a part of a charity, but I love all the stories from Make-A-Wish Foundation.


My dream job: To dance on a cruise ship. I would get to dance on the week days and hang out on exotic beaches on the weekends!

On the top of my bucket list is: Go to Fiji or Dubai.

My hero: My parents, they've done everything for me. I wouldn't be an MVC without their help and support.

Name an inspiring/influential woman in your life: Blair, she is an MVC Alumni. She helped me throughout the audition process and I have looked up to her since I was on MVC Junior Cheer.

How do you define empowered? Empowered. Dancing so hard to get the attention of fans. But then having so much fun and power that it doesn't even matter what someone else thinks. 

Where do you see yourself in five years? Cheering for the Vikings on the sidelines of the Super Bowl game.

Where are you in your family line up? I am the youngest of three kids! I have an older brother and an older sister whom are my best friends.

What was your favorite subject in school? I loved chemistry. I had a good teacher who always made it fun to learn.

Do you have any pets? No, but I love my brothers dog, Axl.

What is your favorite workout tip? To push yourself, and always try hard. The outcome will always be worth it.

My best beauty secret is: Take care of yourself! Always keep your face clean. And for hair, definitely go to Spalon Montage!

Why did you decide to audition to become an MVC? It's something I’ve wanted to do since I was little. I got the chance to dance with the MVC when I did Junior Cheer. After that I knew being a Vikings Cheerleader was what I was meant to do.

What are you most looking forward to your Rookie Year? The moment I get to step out onto the field, and have that adrenaline rush. Dancing in front of thousands of people. It's going to be amazing. I get chills thinking about it.

Most valued lesson learned as an MVC: To love and take care of yourself.
