Hometown: Saint Clairsville, Ohio
Job: Assistant Coordinator at a Sports Medicine facility
My goal in life: To accomplish and experience as much as possible ... I'm very ambitious.
Why I wanted to be a RPD: Being a member of a wonderful team of talented young ladies. But, of course, the best perk is DANCING!!!! I enjoy everything from the games to doing promotions to meeting new people. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this organization?
Favorite Dance Routine: All of them!!
Hobbies: I LOVE TO COOK! I've heard I am pretty good. I also enjoy exercising, traveling (Ireland was great) and my newest hobby is scrap-booking.
Favorite movie: Besides all the usual girlie suspects, 300 was awesome!
Songs on my iPod: The music we dance to along with Evans Blue, Brad Paisley, Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Kelly Clarkson and a ton of Timbaland stuff.
Favorite restaurant: Babbo Bruno
I'm happiest when: It's the Holiday season. I love the baking, gift giving and, above all else, spending time with family and friends.
Favorite Halloween costume: Any of the ones that my mother designed. If I had to choose, it would be either the wizard, princess or the red poodle skirt with the purple high heels. She is so creative.
Favorite childhood recital: I was five and my class did some peppy ballet dance to a great Italian song (I think there was an accordion involved). We even performed at a few Italian festivals that summer.
Greatest Athletic Achievement: My senior year of playing high school basketball. We made it to the district round of the playoffs ... gosh, we were so close. In college, it was winning a conference cheer title and making the all-conference squad. Also, I placed second runner-up at UCA Nationals in Florida for small co-ed squads.
My favorite part of the game: The end. That's when the Rockets have won!!!
My favorite Rockets memory: So far, my favorite Rockets moment was walking out to perform at Open Practice. My first appearance in front of the Rockets' wonderful fans was the realization of a life-long dream.
