Get to know Morgan

What does being a DBC mean to you?

Being a DBC means being a small part of the Broncos family. It means being in a better position to help lift people up — whoever they may be — and knowing I have an amazing team and organization I can count on as well.

What is your dream vacation destination?

Literally everywhere! I want to see the world!

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be an airline pilot, then actress, then astronomer, then inventor. I was fickle.

What advice would you give your younger self?

“Listen to your mother!”

When did you get involved in organized cheer and dance?

I took my first dance class when I was 5 years old.

When did you realize you wanted to do it professionally?

I wanted to be a professional dancer before I took my first dance class. It’s the reason I convinced my mom to sign me up!

What is it about the Broncos that made you want to try out for this team?

The Broncos are such an influential force in the Denver and Colorado community, and I knew I wanted to make an impact in a way that’s bigger than any one person.

How was the audition process?

The audition process was hard work — physically and mentally. And it’s not just the week of auditions, I prepared myself in every way I could for the year leading up to auditions.

What about the calendar shoot experience in Mexico?

The calendar shoot in Mexico was 99 percent excitement and 1 percent nervousness. I think the nervousness came from never having done anything like that before, and also being the first girl to take my photos. The excitement came from exploring a place I’ve never been before with my new teammates and really getting to know them!

What did it feel like when you found out you made the team?

Making the team is a feeling I can most closely describe as similar to those milestones in life we only get to experience once. Getting your driver’s license … graduating from college … starting your career. These are all experiences that come from hard work, and change our lives forever.

What has been your favorite part of being a DBC so far?

My new family! My fellow DBCs and the entire organization as a whole have been nothing but welcoming and encouraging.

How has it been interacting with the public as an ambassador for the Denver Broncos?

As an ambassador for the Broncos, I’m excited to help promote unity and strength in our community around all of our common interests — a love for our team!

What do you do outside of being a DBC?

Outside of being a DBC, I have my full-time job at Lockheed Martin, where I am a software engineer. I’m on the team that writes the software that flies the Orion Capsule — a NASA mission to send men to deep space! I also volunteer in the community helping elementary and high school students understand and appreciate the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) disciplines of their coursework. Other than that, I like to spend time outside with my friends and dog!

Do you have any hidden talents?

I can kick a field goal!
