What is your favorite charity and why?
My favorite charity is the Ronald McDonald House. I am an alumna of Alpha Delta Pi sorority and we worked closely with RMH, as it was our national philanthropy. It’s amazing to see how RMH impacts families as they go through a difficult period.
What's your favorite memory from being on the Lady Cats dance team?
My favorite memory is the first Buzz City night when the Charlotte Hornets identity was revealed. I still get goose bumps thinking about it. When the lights went out, seeing the glow sticks light up the arena and hearing the sound of buzzing; that’s something I will never forget.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
My mother is my inspiration. She is the most caring and encouraging person I know. No matter what I want to pursue, she supports me 100%. Without her, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
If your life was made into a movie, what actress would you choose for the main role?
Jenna Dewan Tatum. She starred in my favorite TV series, American Horror Story and one of my favorite movies, Step Up. Not to mention, she’s an amazing dancer!
What's your favorite part of game day?
The team intro is my favorite part of game day. It’s the first time we get to dance on the court and its fun when Rufus jumps in and dances with us. The energy in the arena is contagious, and everyone is excited for the game to begin.
What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
I have the worst sweet tooth, so I have to say chocolate!
What's one of your favorite quotes that you live by?
“All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them” Walt Disney
What is your favorite time of the year?
Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love to watch the leaves change color, drink pumpkin spice lattes, having cooler (not cold) weather and eating candy corn!
Why would you encourage someone to try out for the Lady Cats?
The experience is once in a lifetime. Just from auditioning, you walk away a better version of yourself. Being a Lady Cat has is so much more than being a member of a dance team. The opportunities are endless and the friendships are priceless.
