What Alex and Ani bangle has special meaning to you?
The Endless Knot bangle because it symbolizes destiny and life’s path. I have the matching necklace, too! It’s my favorite accessory.
If you have a full day completely to yourself, what are you doing?
An ideal day off would actually be spent shopping with my Mom! It’s one of my favorite things to do and it doesn’t happen often enough since we live so far apart.
Any pre-game superstition or ritual?
We do a pre-game huddle/pep-talk before each game. It gives us a chance to come together as a team and remind ourselves how lucky we are to be a part of this organization.
What advice would you give to an aspiring dancer?
Confidence is everything! If you believe in yourself and your abilities, so will everyone else. The audience can’t resist a great performer so hold your head high and show ‘em what you got!
If US Weekly were to ask you "What's in Your Bag?", what are five things they would find in there?
Chapstick, a planner, glasses, gum and my Kindle.
What has been your proudest accomplishment?
Being named Co-Captain of the Celtics Dancers. I am so honored and humbled to lead this team with Ashley. We are both so excited for what’s in store this season!
If you had to host a dinner party, what would be your go to dish?
I definitely have more of a knack for baking than cooking, so I’d make cheesecake with an Oreo crust for dessert!
If you could play any character from a TV show, who would you choose?
Olivia Benson from Law & Order: SVU.
What are your future aspirations?
I’d love to coach a team of my own one day! Performing is dream I am thankfully able to live out right now, but someday I’d love to focus more on choreographing and coaching.
What is something that most people wouldn't know about you?
I am completely deaf in my left ear, and I wasn’t born that way!
