Hobbies and Interests: I feel like I am always planning parties and get-togethers. I am the Dynamo Girls own personal event planner! I also love baking and decorating cupcakes and traveling!

What is something most people do not know about you? Most people don't realize that I am new to Houston. I grew up in Southeast, Texas mudding and riding four-wheelers! Big city livin' is a lot different, but I love it!

Favorite community appearance: My favorite appearance was during the 2010 World Cup when the USA played England. Five of us had the opportunity to join thousands of pumped up Houstonians to watch on the big screen at Discovery Green. It was really fun to see how many people came out to support our team and the energy was unbelievable!

What is the toughest part of being on a pro cheer/dance team? The toughest part is adjusting to a new team at the beggining of a new season, when some of your best friends have retired and the new girls have joined our own little slice of heaven!!

What is your advice to young dancers that want to be where you are now? As with any other sport or team, never give up! Practice, practice, practice!

Occupation: I am a full-time student and work for an Executive Suite.

Favorite thing about Houston: My favorite thing about Houston is definitely the amount of restaurants the city has to offer. I am a huge foodie and love trying new places.

Favorite author: John Grisham

What made you audition for the team? After our Director, Marilu, did MTV's Made at my high school, I heard nothing but tremendous things about her and the Dynamo Girl program. Also, growing up I played on a select soccer team, as well as dancing competitively, so putting together the two things I loved was easy for me!

Role Model: My older brother, Fuller, is my role model and best friend. He is driven in every aspect of his life and is very successful because of it!

When you’re not dancing, what are you doing? When I am not dancing, or working, or at school, I am traveling! This past year I have gone on trips to Vegas, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Baltimore, Washington DC, New York and the Florida Keys! (Baltimore was my favorite, they have incredible eats!)
