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—whomever they may be—and knowing I have an amazing team and organization I can count on as well. I love the fact that DBCs are role models in their community, especially since I want to be a role model to young girls who may have aspirations in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? I'm definitely an introvert who tries to be an extrovert until I say something awkward.
When was the last time you did something you were afraid of? DBC Gioia convinced me to summit Longs Peak with her. That was pretty scary looking off 100-foot sheer drop-offs. But also really fun!
What is your dream vacation destination? Literally everywhere! I want to see the world!
Do you have any pets? Yes! I have a German Shepard/Siberian Husky mix named Aurora (after the Disney princess). She keeps me active and loves skiing and backpacking with me!
What sports did you play growing up? I played competitive soccer all through high school then continued to play just for fun in college intramurals.
When did you first start dancing/cheerleading? I started dancing when I was 3 years old. My mom took me to a free show in the park just before I was 3 and she said I saw the dancers on the stage and told her, “Mommy, I want to be on stage just like that!” She told me I had to wait until I was 3, so of course I reminded her every day until my third birthday that, when I turn 3, I get to start dancing!
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Pause Time!
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a grocery store clerk, then an airline pilot, then an actress, then an astronomer, then an inventor. I was fickle.
What advice would you give your younger self? Listen to your mother!
