What is your favorite charity and why?
Many of my loved ones have been affected by breast cancer and the Susan G. KomenFoundation is very close to my heart. As an animal lover, I am also a huge supporter of the ASPCA.

Dream vacation destination?
Amalfi Coast

What did your first dance costume look like? How old were you?
I wore an (itsy bitsy) yellow polka dot bikini outfit and I was 3. I spent most of the dance facing the back of the stage staring at the sparkly streamers.

Did you play any sports growing up?

I played soccer in 3rd grade. I wore pink ballet tights under my Umbros and played the position that put me as far away from the ball as possible.

What’s your favorite part of game day?
I can’t pick a favorite! From meeting fans before the game to performing on the court. I enjoy the entire experience.

How has being a Lady Cat changed you?
I’ve been very fortunate to enjoy some of the most incredible opportunities to experience the world as a Lady Cat and have also been challenged me to grow both as a performer and as a member of a team.

What are some things that make you really happy?
Being a LadyCat, good conversation with friends and family, helping people in need, my black lab, Diesel, dancing, learning new things, traveling (I’m generally a very happy person).

What is the one thing you hope to do in your role as a Lady Cat?
As a little girl, I looked up to the cheerleaders and dancers and I hope to use this opportunity to be an inspiration and role model for a younger generation. Junior LadyCats is one of my favorite programs!

What is your favorite form of exercise?
Dance-based fitness classes and kickboxing!

What’s one of your favorite quotes that you live by?
Action expresses priorities. – Gandhi

Favorite outdoor activity?
I’m not very outdoors-y, so I would have to say swimming – I love being outside if it is near an ocean.
