DO YOU HAVE ANY PETS (IF SO LIST NAMES)?
SO. MANY. PETS! My parents are both veterinarians so I grew up with over 36 different pets ranging from dogs, cats, chickens, turtles, horses, guinea pigs, etc. I currently have a German Shepherd named Kane though!
WHO IS THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL PERSON IN YOUR LIFE?
Both of my parents-- My mom and dad are hands down the hardest working people I’ve ever encountered. Growing up, they both worked well over 40+ hours a week running their own veterinary businesses, yet never missed anything for me and my sisters either! I’m forever grateful for the work ethic they instilled in me, I definitely wouldn’t be where I am without it.

Teleporting-- So I could go home to Tennessee more often, travel the world, and avoid paying tolls.
FINISH THIS STATEMENT: I am most proud of….
Not letting the fear of the unknown or leaving what’s comfortable hold me back from chasing my big dreams.
WHAT IS YOUR DANCING BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE?
I started dancing at my studio when I was 2.5. I continued studio/competitive dance from ages 7-18, training mostly in ballet and jazz. After graduating high school, I was a four year member of the University of Kentucky Dance Team!
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC?
I auditioned for DCC for numerous reasons. First, because it’s been a dream of mine that started when I was 10 years old after being given my own squad photo of the 2006 team. I looked at those women and thought, “Wow, what I would give to be one of them.” I continued to look at that photo for the next 12 years. I knew if I didn’t give my dreams a shot I would always look back and think, “WHAT IT?!” and the fear of that feeling trumped any fear I had of showing up for auditions. So, I graduated college on May 4th and showed up at auditions May 5th ready to chase my dreams!
IF YOU CAN SAY ANYTHING TO COWBOYS FANS, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
I could never say “Thank you” enough! Each of your all’s endless support is the reason our job is the best!
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE WHO DREAMS OF BECOMING A DCC?
Don’t let the fear of the unknown and the intimidation of this iconic organization hold you back. I promise you that every single woman walking through the doors at prelims is feeling as nervous, intimidated, and fearful as you. Show up at auditions as prepared as you possibly can be in dance, performance, fitness, flexibility, and interview skills and you’ll be at peace with the outcome no matter what, knowing you gave it all you had! And most importantly, don’t forget the joy of dancing along the way!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A PART OF DCC?
The indescribable feeling of performing on game days, being a role model to young girls & boys, and creating timeless friendships.
