After all that, what was your motivation in auditioning for the Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders?I've always loved football, and because I was relocating to Nashville, I thought it'd be a great way to give back to the community, make new girl friends, and be part of the coolest sport ever!  Titans Cheerleading combines all of my favorite things dance, community, football, and friendship!

What is your favorite part about being a Titans Cheerleader?There's no better feeling than being on the sidelines right in the middle of the action. It makes me feel like I'm a real part of the team, and we/I contribute to the success of the team, as well as empathize with their defeats.

You've already accomplished so much..what are your next life goals?The top 3 things I'd like to accomplish in my life are: To have a marriage like my parents and raise awesome kids. To have a foundation for kids in the arts. To continue to pursue dreams that challenge me and allow me to grow.

Who is the biggest celebrity you've met in your career?Probably Justin Timberlake; I am friends with some of his dancers.

If you had $20 extra dollars, what would you spend it on?An inspirational book and fashion magazines.

If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?Just lay on the beach naked all day! I know some people can do that without being invisible, but NOT me! Haha!  

What do you do when you're not at Titans Cheerleading practice, games or appearances?During my little down time, I'm sleeping in, cleaning, playing with my dog, and probably taking dance class at DC Dance Factory.

What is something you would change about yourself if you could?I'd be a better phone talker…I just DON'T like to talk on the phone!  I know it's a necessary thing sometimes but, ugggh I'm not very good at it.

What do you consider your greatest success thus far?My relationship with my mom, dad, and sister are my greatest successes. They are (all 3) my best friends and I go to them for anything and everything. They are my life.
