Meet Luvabull Tricia
Hi, I'm 29, and I'm from Green Bay, Wisconsin. I attended University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse and now work as a Fitness Manager. My friends call me Trish, or "T."
I took dance classes on and off since grade school. In High School I was on the Cheerleading squad for one year and the Pom/Dance team for two years. My High School Dance Team was National Champions in the Jazz/Funk division and Pom Division. In college I danced on a co-ed hip hop performance troop for two years. After college I danced for the Chicago Rush of the Arena Football League and the Schaumburg Flyers Dance Team. I was a member of the Flyers dance team one year and a member of the Adrenaline Rush dance team for 5 years. In 2005 I was a member of the White Sox Pride Crew where we entertained fans in between innings. Two of those years on the Adrenaline Rush I served as a captain and assisted with choreography. During my time with the Rush I represented the dance team in Kosovo performing for our troups. In 2008 I was selected to represent the Chicago Rush and perform as a member of the 2008 Aaron's Dream Team performance at the Talladega NASCAR races. I also taught our Jr. Adrenaline Rush dancers for 5 years.
To never regret my decisions, learn from my mistakes, strive to always learn more and move forward in life and to never be afraid of a challenge. Most of all to be happy and healthy! Eventually I would like to have a healthy family of my own to grow with full of happiness and unity.
Three words that describe me are
Outgoing, driven, creative
Quote to live by
Success is waking up in the morning, whoever you are, wherever you are, and bounding out of bed because there's something out there that you love to do, that you believe in, that you're good at—something that's bigger than you are, and you can hardly wait to get at it again today.

Why I chose to be a Luvabull
I think the Chicago Bulls are a great organization and I was ready for the challenge and excited for all the great opportunities that being a Chicago Luvabull presents. I am honored to have made the team.
I love any good comedy, like Old School, Click, Wedding Crashers, etc.
I am forgiving.
