2nd Season • From Spokane, WA • Attended Washington State University (Go Cougs!)
- When did you start dancing?
I officially started dancing in high school on my school’s dance team, but I always loved making up dances for fun with my friends throughout my childhood and “performing” for our parents.
- What got you started dancing?
I had always loved dancing and choreographing when I was growing up, and then in 8th grade all of my best friends were trying out for the high school dance team, and so I figured I’d give it a try, but never knew that would be the start of my dancing career that would one day lead to this.
- What is your favorite memory as a dancer?
It’s a tie between performing in finals at Nationals my senior year of college, and dancing at my first Blazer playoff game during my rookie season!
- What is your favorite song to dance to?
I can’t pick a favorite! Probably any upbeat Missy Elliott or girl-power Beyoncé song!
- Who is your all-time favorite Blazer?
Since I’m somewhat new to Portland, I’m going to have to say Damian Lillard.
- Other than dancing, what are your hobbies/talents?
I love traveling and seeing new places, taking Barre3 classes, and I love spending any free time I have at home in Spokane with my family.
- What talent do you wish you had?
I wish I could cook!…..anything….
- What is your favorite part about Portland?
I absolutely love the people in Portland, and the overall laid back vibe.
- Where is your favorite place to eat in Portland?
Departure Lounge. I love the overall atmosphere there and the view isn’t bad either!
- What is your favorite movie?
That’s so hard to choose! Titanic has always been one of my favorites.
- Where is the most interesting place you’ve traveled, and why?
The Caribbean islands! It was absolutely beautiful, the people are all so friendly and welcoming, and there is so much to explore!
- If you could time travel back to one decade, what period would you choose?
I would love to go back to the late 1940’s – 1950’s.
- What is your biggest pet peeve?
When people lie or exaggerate everything
- If you could befriend one celebrity, who would it be and why?
Probably Beyoncé, because who wouldn’t want to be friends with her?!
- If your life had a motto, what would it be?
Life is way too short, so just do what makes you HAPPY!!

“When I’m not dancing and I have a free night, I’m either taking a Barre3 class or catching up with friends I haven’t seen in a while!
“when it’s a really close game and the fans are going crazy, and we get to go out onto the court and dance around getting the crowd pumped up is my favorite part about dancing at the Moda Center on a game night. It’s impossible to not have the biggest smile on my face during those hot timeouts!”
“The best part of being a BlazerDancer is that we get to be role models for so many young girls out there and get to represent the best organization in the NBA! My other favorite part of being a dancer is the close friendships I’ve made with all the girls on the team each year. They’re truly like sisters!”
“People would never believe me, but I actually like cleaning and organizing!”
“You won’t believe that I’ve never binge-watched any tv-series on Netflix before!”
