Questions for you:

What are your hobbies?
Playing tennis, exercising on the beach, learning to cook healthy meals, learning ballroom and salsa dancing

Which famous person would you like to have dinner with? Why?
I would love to meet Jamie Oliver from Food Revolution because I truly believe in his mission. I believe that we are misguided by the large food companies and most people/children are ignorant to what consists of a healthy meal. 

Sum up yourself w/one word.

What are you looking forward to this Lakers season?
Representing an amazing organization that is rich in history, reputation and tradition. 

Why did you decide to audition to be a Laker Girl?
I've been a dancer my whole life and it's not something I take lightly. I have been making sacrifices my whole life to pursue my career. Throughout my life, I've missed vacations, weddings, showers, birthdays, etc. to pursue my passion of dance. I've always strived to be the best….. and it's been a dream of mine to be a Laker Girl. I can proudly say I am now, and that my dedication and sacrifices have paid off. 

Name the most inspirational person in your life?
As cliché as it might sound, my parents are the most inspirational. They have both done everything they can in their lives to provide a good life for me.  They are selfless and intelligent. I learn from them everyday.

Fondest memory as a child? 
Spending my summer days outside at the beach or playing at the pool. I love being in warm weather - I live for summer.

What do you think people like most about you?
My sense of humor.

Dislikes…..Vegetable? Food?
I love all foods, and I love trying new foods. But I just stay away from spicy! I have a very low tolerance for spicy.

Guitar, and I'm learning how to play it now.

Or can you play an instrument? (tell us about it)
I play violin and piano. I have been playing the violin since I was 5 years of age and have been playing ever since. I was Concertmaster of my high school orchestra, which is a position honored to 1st Chair, 1st Violion.

Your Horoscope Sign?

If you can say anything to the Lakers fans in L.A. – what would you say?
We appreciate your support and enthusiasm.

Who is your biggest “dancing influence”?
Right now I get so inspired by "So you think you can dance". The dedication and passion the dancers have on the show is incredible. I love watching their progress throughout the season. I definitely feel inspired to dance harder after I watch that show!

Who is the best dancer you've ever seen, or been taught by?
The best dancer I've ever been taught by is Alonzo King at the Alonzo King Ballet Company. He truly believed in the fundamentals of dance. We would spend 2-3 hours in the morning working on the plie`. His work ethic was incredible. He was meticulous, and always strives perfection. I have carried those same principles since.

What is the key to staying in dancing shape?
Staying in dancing shape is a tricky thing! You have to be strong, balanced and agile. Most people are either strong, or agile, but dancers have to be both.

How many three pointers could you hit with 10 attempts?
I would like to think all of them but I would be lucky getting 1!

What was your best team sport growing up?
Track and Tennis
