What does being a member of the Luvabulls mean to you?
Being a member of the Luvabulls and the Chicago Bulls organization is an incredible honor. My fellow teammates are some of the most intelligent, talented and amazing women I know. I am proud to be able to represent Chicago alongside them. Community involvement has always been important to me, and the Luvabulls organization allows me the opportunity to give back to the community while pushing me to be the best person, and role model, I can be.
How has your dancing experience led you to this point?
I have been lucky enough to dance since I was a child. I participated in a very competitive high school dance team, in which we earned the title of National Champions my senior year. While in graduate school, I spent 3 seasons with the St. Louis Rams as an NFL Cheerleader. After relocating to Chicago, I hoped to continue dancing and I am proud to say I am now in my 4th season with the Chicago Bulls!
What people do you admire the most and how have they supported or inspired you as a dancer?
I admire my family so much. They have supported me 100% in everything I have done. My parents have always encouraged me to stay active, both mentally and physically. I am so proud of each of my 4 siblings, for their individual successes and the people they have grown to become. They keep me grounded and focused and have always shown me the utmost support and encouragement.
What is your proudest accomplishment to date and where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I am most proud of my education. I obtained my Master's degree by the time I was 24 and continue to challenge myself to learn every day. Not everyone is given the opportunity for a higher education, and in 10 years I hope to still be utilizing my education while finding myself happy and healthy.
