Quote: “Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most.”

Place I’ve traveled and why: Vancouver, BC – I enjoyed the cultural differences along with the incredible views. I recommend checking out the Stawamus Chief hiking trails!

Charity and why: Big Brothers Big Sisters – I’ve been matched with my “little sister” for about 3 years. They do an amazing job of connecting local youth with caring mentors, offering a variety of learning opportunities, and providing support throughout their years of growth.

 

My dream job: The next Cake Boss. I have a passion for baking unique cakes and have been known to spend hours creating the perfect unicorn ballerina, basketball-playing minion, or camera-replica cakes for good friends, family, and a local non-profit organization.

On the top of my bucket list is: Traveling to New Zealand or anywhere in Europe. I would love the opportunity to see the gorgeous scenery in New Zealand or to explore everything Europe has to offer!

My hero: My mom and guardian angel. She was an incredible example of strength, independence, hard work, and resilience, which are some of the attributes I will be forever thankful she taught me. 

Name an inspiring/influential woman in your life: I have 41+ inspiring women by my side daily with the MVC and staff. There is something incredible about surrounding yourself with women who push each other to be their best, support one another with life on and off the field, and who are amazing role models for teammates and the community.

How do you define empowered? My definition of “empowered” is the feeling of strength, confidence, and the attitude that nothing can get in the way of your goals.

Where do you see yourself in five years? In 5 years, I hope to be feeling my best; watching the Vikings win the Super Bowl; surrounded by love, family, and friends; and continuing to find success in wherever my career path takes me!

Where are you in your family line up? I am the youngest of two!

What was your favorite subject in school? My favorite subject in school was math. I enjoyed it so much that I consistently worked chapters ahead of the class schedule, participated in math competitions, and tutored friends.

Do you have any pets? I don’t have any pets of my own, but my family has two toy poodles. I currently get my puppy-fix by volunteering with the dogs waiting to get adopted at Animal Humane Society. The dream dog I hope to get one day is a Bernedoodle: Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle Mix.

What is your favorite workout tip? Find group fitness classes and instructors at Life Time Fitness that you enjoy! Staying consistent with my workouts became effortless after I found a variety of group fitness classes I look forward to and truly enjoy. Bonus: You will be surrounded by like-minded people to help keep you motivated during class and have the potential of making new friends!

My best beauty secret is: Stay active and eat well. If you take care of your body, others will see your confidence shine, skin radiate, and you’ll feel so much better during the day and through the years!

Why did you decide to audition to become an MVC? I decided to audition to become an MVC because it was a one-of-a-kind opportunity that incorporated so many of my passions: The Minnesota Vikings organization, performing in a setting like no other, being part of a team of incredibly talented and motivated women, building life-long friendships, volunteering and community engagement, glamour, and fitness.

What are you most looking forward to your Rookie Year? One of the many moments I am most looking forward to for my rookie season is the first time I get to perform SKOL alongside my teammates in the end zone after the first touchdown of the season!

Most valued lesson learned as an MVC: The importance of time management and staying on top of every aspect of your life!
