What would fans be surprised to know about you?
I have two pet guinea pigs—Brownie and Pokie. They are zany, always hungry, and hilarious, squealing every time I come home and every time I open the refrigerator. Their favorite foods are carrots, celery, and timothy hay.

What has been your favorite Broncos moment?
My favorite Broncos moment has always been our annual team visit to Craig Hospital during the holidays. Meeting the patients and their families, hearing their courageous stories, and sharing holiday cheer with everyone there is truly the most heart-warming experience.

What is your favorite part of being a Denver Broncos Cheerleader veteran?
I love how my apartment has transformed into a museum display of Broncos collector’s items haha. Over the years since first joining the team I have collected so many special mementos. Some of my favorite items include my AFC Championship pendant, my Super Bowl 48 stadium passes, my Broncos game ball (recognizing 5 years with the team), a Pro Bowl 2015 game ticket, and the Barbie doll replica of myself in uniform that was handmade for me by an incredible fan named Darlene. I also have more team posters and framed photos than I have enough wall space for. Guess it’s time for me to move into a bigger place.

Favorite current or all-time dance song
My current favorite dance song has a little southern twang to it—Crank It Up by Colt Ford

When did you first start dancing / cheerleading?
I began dancing ballet at age five. I trained in a pre-professional dance program for 13 years before becoming a professional ballerina. I performed with Milwaukee Ballet and Carolina Ballet over the course of a 7-year career before I became a cheerleader with the Denver Broncos in 2010.

Zodiac sign
Taurus

Favorite movie
Dirty Dancing

Favorite TV Shows
My all-time favorites: Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Friends, Seinfeld, and Saved by the Bell. I love watching reruns of old shows on Netflix.

Favorite time of year
Football season! Haha, in all seriousness I love the fall, and I love that football kicks off at the same time.

Hobbies
yoga, running, hiking, reading, cooking

Funniest question you've gotten as a dancer / cheerleader
By Lou Holtz: “If you are bored with life, if you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things – you don’t have enough goals.”

Favorite quote
By Lou Holtz: “If you are bored with life, if you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things – you don’t have enough goals.”

Favorite style of dance
I love taking ballet class and wearing my pointe shoes so I can dance around on my toes. It’s what I grew up doing and I was in class almost every day as a kid. But I love watching just about any style of dance—hip hop, salsa, break dance, tap, lyrical, poms, ballroom, etc. Expressing yourself thru movement has always been a passion of mine and I have so much respect for other performers and artists that specialize in different forms of dance.

All-time favorite dance routine you've done?
My favorite DBC routine was called Two Step. Two Step was performed during the 3rd quarter break at Super Bowl 48 in the end zone at Met Life stadium. I still feel that it was one of the best performances we had ever done as a team.

Favorite meal or restaurant
Pizza! Thin crust, thick crust, deep dish—doesn’t matter, sign me up for a spot at that table.

Favorite junk food
Ice cream

Bad habit I'm trying to break
I always leave my laundry in the dryer over night. Ugh, wrinkles.

Three people on twitter I follow
Jimmy Fallon, Sports Illustrated, and Michelle Beisner

What I love most about my fellow DBC's?
Their drive. My DBC teammates are a driven group of women that put 110% into every aspect of their lives. No matter how much they have on their plate between work, family, community, and cheerleading, they put their hearts into everything they do and inspire those around them. They inspire me constantly.

I'd walk a mile to meet...
Madeline Wickham, or known by her pen name as Sophie Kinsella. She is an English author and a favorite writer of mine.

Past accomplishment I'm really proud of is...
Being selected by my teammates to represent the Broncos at the 2015 ProBowl in Phoenix, AZ.

In three words, my driving is described as...
Zippy Clown Car

# of siblings
I’m an only child.

Dream vacation location
Italy. I’d love to travel from north to south hitting all the major cities along the way, eating my weight in Italian cooking, learning the language, immersing myself in the art and the culture, meeting the locals, and taking a selfie with the leaning tower of Pisa.

If I won the lottery, the most ridiculous thing I would buy is...
A vacation home in the mountains, ideally one that looks like it was made with Lincoln Logs—my favorite childhood toy. ;)

Two things I always have in my fridge
Carrots for my piglets and chocolate for me.

Favorite 80's or 90's song
“Dreamlover” by Mariah Carey

Most interesting class You've ever taken?
I took a commercial acting class where I had to read and act out mock TV commercial scripts. It really pushed me to get over my fear of being in front of a video camera.

Best subject in school was...
Math! Calculus was my favorite class during senior year of high school.

What is your passion besides dancing?
I love to cook and whip up new tasty dishes. I’ll usually see fresh ingredients at the grocery store and get a great idea or I’ll take a mental picture of a dish I find on Pinterest. I never use recipes. I’ll just sort of dream up a meal idea and run with it, throwing a mix of things into a pan and end up on the other side with a plate of good eats. I think it’s the element of surprise I enjoy.

Dogs or Cats?
Both! I love all kinds of animals and pets. As a kid I always wanted a pet turtle—so I vote for reptiles too.

Craziest or most memorable Halloween costume
I dressed up as Smurfette. I wore a head-to-toe blue unitard, painted my face blue, and wore a long blonde wig.

New Year's resolution you make every year and break soon after
I always resolve to travel more and then work happens lol. Hopefully this year I’ll be able to squeeze in a few road trips to Wyoming, New Mexico, Texas, and western Colorado.
