What do you enjoy most about performing?
I love putting on a good show for the audience. It makes me smile every time they cheer at the end. They are the reason we perform, and their reaction is what I enjoy most.
What is your dancing background?
I started dancing when I was six. I joined a competitive dance team in 2004 and completed four years before focusing on cheer. I turned back to dance in 2015 when I joined the Fever Inferno Hip Hop Squad. I have been a performer for Pacers Sports & Entertainment ever since.
Outside of dancing, what are your hobbies and interests?
I love traveling and just about everything Disney. I could go on and on about those two topics.
What's one interesting fact about you?
When I'm in the car, I either listen to classical music or a Disney playlist.
What is the best thing about Indiana fans?
Indiana fans are so energetic and loyal to their team. I think that their loyalty is the best part about them. They always fill the stands with blue and gold, cheering on the players and entertainers no matter the circumstance. They never quit.
If you could be a backup dancer for one musical artist, who would it be and why?
I would be a backup dancer for Ciara! I have always loved her dance style and personality. She is one of my favorite artists!
Do you have any pets?
I have two pets, both Yorkshire Terriers. One, who forever lives in my heart, is named Nani. The other, who runs through my house like a wild animal, is named Leila.
