Memphis Grizz Girls presented by Gossett Motor Cars


Hey Grizz Nation, I'm Kayli otherwise known at "Strain". When I'm not dancing and performing for the best fans in NBA you can catch me working at Flight in downtown Memphis. I'm just small town girl from Mountain Home, Arkansas making my dreams come true. I love to spend time with family and friends and eating all the sushi I can. I'm looking forward to my 1st year as a Grizz Girl and meeting the best fans out there supporting the Grizzlies!!
