Why did you decide to audition to be a Laker Girl?
The first year I auditioned, it was purely because I had a strong passion for dance. The last three years that I have auditioned were because I love to dance and love being a part of the Lakers Organization.

Fondest memory as a child?
One of my fondest memories from childhood would be playing with my sisters at my grandparent's house in Florida. We could entertain ourselves for hours on end.

Name the most inspirational perosn in your life?
My parents. They raised four girls, put us all through school and maintained sanity somehow...I hope to be as successful and giving as them someday.

Fondest memory as a Laker Girl?
I think one of my fondest memories as a Laker Girl would be when we traveled to London during preseason last year. It was very cool to perform in the O2 arena, represent the organization and spend time in a beautiful city with the other girls.

What do you like most about being a part of the Laker Girls dance team?
I absolutely love going out into the community to represent the Lakers organization. I feel like we really do get the opportunity to help people in our community and charitable foundations - it makes me feel good to do so.

I wish that I could play the violin.

Figure Skating, definitely. I love the fun outfits and dance-like routines.

What is your scariest memory?
Bungee Jumping was pretty scary, but it was so fun that I was glad I went through with it.

Embarrassing moment as a Laker Girl?
The first solo I ever performed was to The Backstreet Boys "Larger Than Life" ( gets worse). I didn't have much experience with the pressure involved in performing a solo and halfway through was running low on energy and forgot the routine. I improved about 3 eight counts of ill-conceived "hip hop", ended with a jumping split....and then ran off of the stage in embarrassment.

Your Horoscope Sign?
Virgo, although I don't really follow my horoscope...

If you can say anything to the Lakers fans in L.A. – what would you say?
Keep cheering loud at the games!!

Who is your biggest “dancing influence”?
I would say the biggest influence in my life that initially guided me toward a dance career was Ms. Smith, who was one of my first dance teachers ever, she taught me to love the stage.

Best choreographer?
One of the best choreographers I have worked with was C. Birmingham who owns Dance Continuum in Texas.

What is the key to staying in dancing shape?
Well rounded workouts: cardio, weights, resistance, stretching, and of course dancing.

How many free throws could you hit out of 10 attempts?
I think I could hit 8. I play the "Hot Shot" arcade game sometimes, and I'm pretty good!!

How many three pointers could you hit with 10 attempts?
I think I could hit 2, but that's pretty far shot.

What was your best team sport growing up?
I played soccer and softball (2nd base) when I was younger. I think I was probably better at softball.
