Occupation and how does Broncos affect your work?
Being an elementary school teacher and a Broncos cheerleader both require a ton of energy!  I love keeping busy.  Sometimes I don't know where I get the energy, but I guess you can say doing what you love is the key to motivation!

What is the most important attribute of a Denver Broncos cheerleader?
Being a well-rounded individual!  It is important to be YOURSELF, as a Denver Broncos Cheerleader.  There are so many different responsibilities and experiences within the position that I feel it is important to incorporate all you've learned and all of who you are, into everything you do.

Most memorable experience?
I was extremely blessed to have been asked to go on an AFE (Armed Forces Entertainment) tour last season to Guam.  It was truly eye-opening to see what daily life is like for our troops overseas.  Having the opportunity to be the little piece of "home" to them was more rewarding than I could have ever imagined.  I will treasure each connection I made with our soldiers in Guam.

Who has been your greatest inspiration?
My mom.  She is one of the strongest people I know.  She has done everything for my sisters and I and I hope to one day be the selfless, loving woman she is to my kids.

What is one thing about being a DBC that most people don't know?
We have to take a written football test as part of the audition process! So yes, we do know, and like, Denver Broncos football!

Best advice to kids?
YOU ARE SPECIAL!  You can do anything you put your heart into!  So go shine!!!!

What sports do you enjoy watching or playing?
I'm more of a spectator than a participant... but I absolutely love a good ole game of hockey, basketball, football, or lacrosse.  I do, however, really want to get into tennis one day!  It would be a great way to workout and have a little competitive fun!

What top three things do you hope to accomplish in your lifetime?
1) I want to one day have a family and be the best mom and wife I can be!
2) I want to travel!  I don't think I'll make it to every continent, but if I can make it to five, I'll be more than happy!
3) I would like to complete a mini-triathlon!  I completed my first half-marathon last year, and love a good 10K.  l enjoyed the challenge of training and the sense of accomplishment at the finish line.

What do you value most in your life?
The people I love.

Place you would most like to visit and why?
If I had to choose one place to visit from my long list of places to go, I'd choose Spain!  I think it looks like a beautiful place to visit, rich with culture and yummy Spanish food.

Who do you admire most in the sports industry?
Wayne Gretzky.

What is the best thing about Broncos fans?
Being the best, most dedicated fans in the NFL!

What book are you currently reading?
Twilight!  I know I'm a little late ... but better late than never, right!? I'm hooked! Go Team Edward!

In what charities or community service organizations are you most involved and why?
As a Denver Broncos Cheerleader, we are provided with numerous opportunities to get involved and reach out to the community.  As a teacher, I've always enjoyed being involved with the Read Across America program.  The impact adults and professionals can have by simply reading a book to a child or being read to, is astronomical and so important!

What is something about you that fans might not know?
I'm a California girl!

What makes you laugh?
Kids!!! They say and do the funniest darn things!!

How do you challenge yourself?
By being the best ME, I can be!  I try to remember what I have been given, appreciate it, and do it with all the energy and strength I am supplied with each and every day!

How do you spend your time in the offseason?
One of my favorite things to do is just spend the afternoon in a coffee shop.  I love the smell of coffee and the coziness of the environment.  I also love watching movies, kickboxing, and hanging out with my little sisters.

In what area of your life have you achieved the most success?
I think I have been successful in following my heart in achieving my goals.  I have been blessed with so many opportunities and am truly grateful for the impact each one of them has had on me and the relationships I have built through them.  They all have shaped me into the person I am today.  For me, it has been important to set goals for myself and achieve them, but also to be open to the unexpected opportunities life may present.
