FINISH THIS STATEMENT

I am most proud of: My resilience

I’ve always wanted to: Start a dance foundation for the youth in my community.

What is your dance background and experience? I began dancing at the age of two at Pinnell Dance Centre in Gahanna, OH. At Pinnell I learned the true definition of hard work and accountability. I was invited to perform and tour Europe twice with the "Stars of Tomorrow" I also won numerous dance awards. After graduating from high school, I continued to teach and I moved into choreography. In 2012, after graduating from the Ohio State University I was a member of Seven Dance Company. Shortly after in 2013-14 I was fortunate enough to become a Cavalier Girl. It was such an amazing "Rookie" season and I enjoyed every moment. The following year I moved to Cincinnati and cheered as a Ben-Gal. I missed performing professionally and I'm excited to be back!! In my free time, I also judge pageants across the Midwest and choreograph for dancers that are competing in dance competitions and pageant across the US. 

Why did you decide to audition for Cavalier Girls? The Cavalier organization is a big family. From the Security Team, to Team Ops all the way to the Team Shop. We all love each other and all share the same goal. Which is making each opportunity for the fans the second they visit the Q; The best experience it could possibly be. That's an amazing thing to be a part of. It's special, and it shows how much we all care about Cleveland and our Cavs! 

What do you like most about being a part of the Cavalier Girls? For me, it's performing with the other 19 girls on the court. We have such a power house squad! They're all so beautiful and intelligent and we all work hard. It's an honor to dance beside all of them. 

Most memorable Cavalier Girl moment so far? Being nominated "Most Unique" from the Cleveland Cavaliers Organization in 2013-14.

If you can say anything to Cavalier fans, what would you say? Thank you for being so amazing & supportive. I love performing for the best fans in the land!! We appreciate you.
