What is the most important attribute of a Denver Broncos cheerleader?
Always being enthusiastic! Enthusiasm is a contagious characteristic and can spread quickly. You should always be willing to do more, and truly believe in what you are doing.

Most memorable experience?
Seeing my family in the audience at Broncos auditions, when we performed our first dance as the new 2010-2011 Denver Broncos Cheerleaders (the first time I had made the team).  They have supported me every step of the way, and it all came together that moment I saw them from the stage.

Who has been your greatest inspiration?
My grandpa (“Bampa”). Even as a young kid, I knew he would be one of the greatest people I would ever know in my life.

What is one thing about being a DBC that most people don't know?
Most people don’t know how much our team cares and supports our troops.  Much of what we do revolves around them.  For example, we say a prayer before every football game for the men and women who are fighting for our freedom.  We send care packages to bases all over for Christmas and other holidays.  We have also sent some of our girls to tour all over the world to meet and bring a little piece of home to those who are deployed.  We are so incredibly thankful for their service and we do everything we can to show that.

Best advice to kids?
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind" -Dr. Seuss

What sports do you enjoy watching or playing?
Other than the obvious (dancing and watching football), I love to watch basketball and baseball, and I really enjoy skiing/snowboarding and playing beach volleyball!

What top three things do you hope to accomplish in your lifetime?
1. Become an EMT/paramedic.  Eventually attend PA school.
2. Have a family of my own and be as good of a parent as my parents are.  
3. Take a year of my life to travel.  Meet new people, experience new cultures, and enjoy the small things in life that people become too busy to enjoy.

What do you value most in your life?
My family, my friends, and my health.  I'm very appreciative to have such an AMAZING family and supportive friends. Being healthy is something most people don't appreciate until they are sick, so I try to value my health everyday!

Place you would most like to visit and why?
Santorini, Greece.  It's a mini paradise in the Greek Islands!!  I can't even put in words how beautiful it is there.

Who do you admire most in the sports industry?
Oscar Pistorius- "the Blade Runner".  Nothing has stopped him from accomplishing his dreams and he exemplifies all the characteristics of an amazing role model and athlete for all who follow him.  His motto is: "You're not disabled by the disabilities you have; you are able by the abilities you have."

What is the best thing about Broncos fans?
Their passion for the Broncos.  They are enthusiastic, always supportive, and most importantly, they are classy.

What book are you currently reading?
EMT Textbook!

In what charities or community service organizations are you most involved and why?
I really enjoy giving back to the community in any way I can. Therefore, I try to even out my charity involvement to show my support for all types of organizations (breast cancer, children, military, etc…)

What is something about you that fans might not know?
I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC!!!! 

What makes you laugh?
It's not hard to make me laugh…but I think sarcastic people are very funny!  I do have to admit that Larry the Cable Guy is one of my favorites!

How do you challenge yourself?
I set high goals, and I don't stop until I have reached those goals.  I am very hard on myself in that aspect.  I will always want to do something better than the last time.

How do you spend your time in the offseason?
I love the outdoors! In the summer I love to hike, camp, go four-wheeling, shooting, beach volleyball, etc… and in the winter I love to ski and snowboard!

In what area of your life have you achieved the most success?
Dance and school.  I have worked my whole life to get where I am today in both school and dance.  I have been through many ups and downs in the past, but I have realized that I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for every single achievement and disappointment that I have experienced. I have always put school before everything else, and I have worked extremely hard to earn and maintain the grades I have.  When I'm not studying, I put everything I have left into dance.
