I used to run track and field. I was all-state for 4 years and I hope to train for a marathon so we'll see

Who inspired you to become a Sixers Dancer?
I would say Jen Kaputo. (She was a former Sixers Dancer.) She came down to Kutztown University where I went to run a clinic with us. Just from the start - her poise and the way she danced made me want to be a part of the Sixers Dancers.

What is one of your favorite Philly hotspots?
I would say any Steven Starr restaurant. Philly has so many great places to eat. Buddakan is definitely one of my favorites as well as Chickie's and Pete's.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I just moved, so right now I've been busy setting up my apartment, getting ready for school and getting my classroom together.

What is your most memorable experience as a Sixers Dancer?
I would have to say being a Dunking Dancer. Just being a part of this team you get so many opportunities you wouldn't normally get.
