    Questions for you:

    What are you hobbies?
    I love to work on puzzles, be with friends and family, sing, workout, play with my dog and of course, dance!

    Which famous person would you like to have dinner with? Why?
    Jesus. It would be absolutely fascinating to be in the company of such an influential person….and to get to see first hand what we know only from others' writing and stories.

    Describe yourself...or your personality.
    I'm passionate, driven, and competitive. I don't think I've ever said “no” to a challenge, no matter how small!

    Sum up yourself with one word.

    What are you looking forward to this Lakers season?
    ...Everything! Team bonding, appearances, charity events, games, the fans, the dancing, I could go on forever!

    Why did you decide to audition to be a Laker Girl?
    I have wanted to be a Laker Girls for many years now. This is my third year auditioning, so it goes to show that hard work pays off! Each time I failed, I learned what I needed to work on to better my chances. I focused on improving both my dancing and fitness in order to give myself the best chance possible to live my dream of being a part of this organization. 

    Name the most inspirational person in you life.
    On a personal level, I look up to my parents because of their hard work and dedication to our family. They have given me a wonderful upbringing and I am where I am today because of their unconditional love. On a greater scale, I am incredibly inspired by those living in Japan that had to endure such a difficult year of natural disasters. Through it all they have remained strong and respective of one another.

    Fondest memory as a child?
    Playing tackle football with my older brothers in the family room while watching Monday Night Football, but they could only be on their knees when I had the ball!

    What do you lik most about being a part of the Laker Girls dance team?
    Although I haven't been through a whole season yet, I can already tell that the team camaraderie is unlike anything else. I know I will have lifelong friends from this team!

    What do you think people like most about you?
    I like to listen and support others - it's a big reason why I'm in the healthcare field. I want to help others be the best and happiest they can be.

    Dislikes…..Vegetable? Food?
    Fried food - which is quite a handy dislike to have when it comes to eating healthily! Although somehow french fries don't seem to bother me... :)

    If you could play an instrument – which one would it be?
    Guitar. I took an introductory class in college and loved it!

    If you could be in the Olympics – which sport would you like to compete in?
    Any of them! Just to be able to be in the Olympics and compete alongside the elite athletes would be an incredible honor.

    Embarrassing moment ever?
    A crush of mine from high school came to my door to say hello many years after we graduated, and I got so excited that he was outside my door I tried to skip a step downstairs...and ended up falling down not one, but TWO flights! My ego (and the rest of my body!) was very bruised!

    Your Horoscope Sign?

    If you can say anything to the Lakers fans in L.A. – what would you say?
    I would say Thank YOU! The Lakers have a wonderful fan base, and together we can cheer on our team to another great year!

    What is the key to staying in dancing shape?
    You've heard it a million times - diet and exercise! Together they are the most effective way to be fit and healthy.

    How many free throws could you hit out of 10 attempts?
    Thank goodness I grew up with older brothers... My goal would be to match Shaq's FT percentage!
