Where are you from? Born and raised in Cincinnati, now living in Sterling, VA

Why did you join Cheer DC? I started cheering in college. However, I never got to go to competitions because it conflicted with my Major. Afterward, I thought I might have missed out on an incredible experience. But after I was told about Cheer DC, I saw my chance at cheer redemption and leaped. I ended finding more than I thought I would find.

Hidden Talent? If I’ve watched an episode/film scene more than five times, I can quote it for you. Who wants to hear Golden Girls memorized?

Guilty Pleasure? Cosplaying. I love dressing up in costumes and playing characters from movies, comics, games, time periods, what have you.

Favorite Holiday? Tying into the last question, Halloween!

Dream vacation? It’s a tie between exploring the sights around the Mediterranean (Greece, Italy, France, Spain, etc.) and visiting every Disney park on the planet.

Cannot live without? Breakfast, music and love.
