Why did you decide to audition to become an MVC? After completing my college dance career, I knew I wanted to audition for the MVC because I couldn't imagine my life without dance and being a part of a team. When I showed up for my first prep class I realized what an amazing group of women the MVC were comprised of and was driven to work my hardest to make the team.

What is your favorite memory as an MVC? Walking into the tunnel for my first game, and being surrounded by hundreds of MVC Alumni as we prepared to perform a Prince Tribute dance together.

Most valued lesson learned as an MVC: Always keep improving.
