GET TO KNOW ALLISON

What does being a DBC mean to you?
While my time on the team has been short, being a DBC has been everything I hoped for and more. I have gained a new form of sisterhood that I know I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Who is your hero?
My friend, Devin, who is a two-time cancer survivor and has never once let cancer define her.

What was the first concert you went to?
I was about 7 or 8, and went to see Britney Spears. It’s still one of my most vivid memories from growing up. 

If there were a movie made about your life, which celebrity would you want to play you?
Jennifer Aniston!

What is your dream vacation destination?
Greece or Ireland.

When did you first start dancing or cheerleading?
I started dance when I was about 3 years old.

In 10 years I see myself…
In 10 years, I hope to be established in my career, planning events for a non-profit organization or a company that is deeply involved with charitable foundations.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Literally everything. Every age, it was a different occupation. Lawyer, police officer, singer (I’m tone deaf, by the way), professional dancer, just to name a few.

What advice would you give your younger self?
To live more in the moment and not sweat the small things.

When did you realize you wanted to do it professionally?
It was probably around the time I was in the fourth grade. My cousin and dance teacher were both Houston Texans Cheerleaders during that time.

What was the audition process like?
It was the most challenging yet rewarding experience I have incurred thus far. There were times where I second-guessed my ability to make the team. My days were filled with studying for the football test, preparing for the interview, or practicing the new dance material.

How was your calendar shoot experience in Mexico?
It was such a fun experience! The Breathless Riviera Cancun resort was beautiful, and we had such a great time visiting Xel-Ha Park. It was actually my first experience with a photo shoot like the one in Mexico, so I was pretty nervous leading up to the shoot. Thankfully, I had a great team behind me. I would have been lost without our hair and make-up team, the photographers, our directors, and my teammates encouraging me throughout the process.

How much have you enjoyed working with the public as an ambassador for the Denver Broncos?
Having the opportunity to work with the Denver community and represent the Broncos organization has been such a humbling experience. I have enjoyed getting the chance to talk with fans, hearing about their love for this team and the memories they’ve had.
