Get to know DBC Dee:
What does being a DBC mean to you? Being a DBC is way beyond a dream come true. The privilege of cheering on the best team in the NFL and being in the Mile High Magic is something so special! I think the most significant thing about this program is the everyday impact we are able make in the community, which is something I looked forward to when going for this team. Being a DBC is carrying out the legacy of many poised women who have helped me develop into the woman that I am today. Now that my dream is a reality, I can do the same. It means I have a platform to be myself and inspire young girls who one day want to stand in these boots, and that to me, is everything.
Who is your inspiration? My family, teammates, friends, partner, coaches and colleagues. I’m very lucky to have some phenomenal people in my life, and everyone propels me to be my best!
Tell us about the first concert you've ever been to. Katy Perry at the Pepsi Center. Back then, "California Gurls" was my jam, and I learned the dance from it and did the choreography in the stands when she performed that track.
What is your biggest fear? Artificial intelligence taking over the world.
What habit would you most like to break? Checking emails first thing when I wake up.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Surprisingly (even to my friends and family), I’m an introvert, I grew up so shy!
What was your first job? I was a ride operator at an amusement park.
What’s up next on your bucket list? Travel, travel, travel!
When was the last time you did something you were afraid of? I moved to Australia on my own and made a life there two years ago!
What is your dream vacation destination? I’ve been eyeing St. Lucia and Santorini!
Do you have any pets? I grew up with baby turtles and claim my sister’s cat as my own sometimes. I hope to have a couple dogs very soon!
What sports did you play growing up? I was mostly a nerd growing up. I was super into books and arts rather than sports! I had a try at volleyball in middle school, but that was short-lived! Back in the day, my siblings and I would go for some badminton games in the park after discovering some shuttles in our garage.
When did you first start dancing/cheerleading? I started dancing in high school and tried out for our high school poms team. I fell in love with dance, and it eventually led to dancing in college, entering the pro dance world with Colorado teams, and now landing my dream gig!
Describe yourself in four words? Tenacious, passionate, kind, creative.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? It would be fascinating to fly or read minds.
In 10 years I see myself… happy, healthy, doing what I love, and changing the world! I see myself launching my second (or third!) creative company, have given a TED Talk, and continuously growing and being inspired. I see a family in there, I see a lot of travel adventures, and I see some creative projects ahead. And dancing of course.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I definitely thought I was going to be an Olympic gold medalist for Team USA gymnastics while juggling my day job of being Dr. Dee. I’d say DBC takes the cake though. I’ll take it!
What advice would you give your younger self? I would tell myself to enjoy the present moment and trust the process! I’d get so caught up in whether or not things worked out or measure the achievement rather than the process, that the journey would be overlooked.
