What do you enjoy most about performing?
Performing is an outlet for me. I love that I can find happiness when I am dancing no matter what is happening at that time in my life.

What is your dancing background?
I grew up dancing as part of a competitive dance company for 15 years. I have since choreographed for numerous high school, college, competitive and pro teams. For the past five seasons, I have had the opportunity to represent the Pacemates at the Pro Action Dance Convention in Las Vegas where dancers learn choreography from multiple professional choreographers to bring back to their home teams!

Outside of dancing, what are your hobbies and interests?
Outside of dance, I enjoy singing and playing guitar. I perform small gigs with my band, as well as writing music of our own.

What's one interesting fact about you?
I am 5’ 5” in height but have a 5’ 7” wingspan.

What is the best thing about Indiana fans?
There is nothing like the energy you feel when you are in the Fieldhouse and our team is making a comeback. Indiana fans fight until the end and are loyal to the Pacers organization in good and challenging times. I could not imagine representing another fanbase.

If you could be a backup dancer for one musical artist, who would it be and why?
I would love to backup dance and travel with Lady Gaga! I respect Gaga as an artist and think she is extremely talented. I am always in awe of the productions she puts on during her performances. It would be a dream to be a part of something so epic.

Do you have any pets?
Lola is a 4-month-old lab mix who I rescued a few months ago. She is a firecracker and brings me so much joy!
