What do you enjoy most about performing?
The energy! Getting to hype up those dancing around me as well as those watching brings me life! Energy is so infectious and makes a world of difference!

What is your dancing background?
I joined rhythmic gymnastics when I was 8-years-old and stayed with the sport until I was 16. At 18, I joined Bellarmine University's dance team, and we won nationals my junior year. After graduating, I realized I love dancing and wanted to keep doing it! I looked at different avenues, even participated in aerial classes, but I decided NBA dancing was a good fit for my lifestyle and energy. Last year was my rookie season with the Pacemates, and I'm so thankful every day for the opportunity to share what I love to do with others!

Outside of dancing, what are your hobbies and interests?
I love going to soccer matches and socializing with friends! In my small amount of free time, I try to make sure I get out and see my favorite people because it helps me relax and take a break from everything else on my mind.

What's one interesting fact about you?
I have five siblings!

What is the best thing about Indiana fans?
I love the respect Indiana has. Indiana fans are loyal, down-to-earth and stay true to their roots. They keep it simple by appreciating hard work!

If you could be a backup dancer for one musical artist, who would it be and why?
MAJOR LAZER! Their music is a unique style that always makes me want to dance. I love that they strive for something bigger than themselves. They radiate positivity and unity. Their group is incredibly supportive of each other, and I would love to be a part of it!
