NUMBER OF YEARS AS A BEN-GAL:  1

MOST MEMORABLE BENGALS GAME: First Preseason Game of 2016 Season - Bengals vs. Minnesota -  The first time I stepped onto the field as a Ben-Gal Cheerleader! Who-Dey!  It was the hottest and most humid game I’ve ever cheered.  My eyeballs were sweating.  My uniform survived the orange sequins bleeding onto my white uniform.  That was a scare!  My performance from this game, led me to be selected for Cheerleader of the Week for the Colts game.  For these many reasons this was my most memorable Bengals game!

MOST MEMORABLE BEN-GAL MOMENT:  Dancing alongside Ben-Gal legacies!  It was the first practice with the Ben-Gal Alumni on a cold and rainy night before the Bengals Football Game. I’ve looked up to these women growing up - their gorgeous smiles, white boots, perfect hair!  Dancing alongside these powerful women - something I will never forget!

FAVORITE BENGALS PLAYER: Andy Dalton

FAVORITE THING TO DO IN CINCINNATI: Explore and go on adventures!  New restaurants, musicals, parks, thrift stores - so much to do!

FAVORITE SPORT TO PARTICIPATE IN: Since I consider cheerleading a sport, it’s naturally my favorite sport to participate in.  I love cheering for my favorite NFL team Cincinnati Bengals!  And cheering for my favorite USL team FC Cincinnati!  Mitch says NO!

FAVORITE BOOK: “The Pioneer Woman Cooks-Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl” by Ree Drummond (I love to cook, especially with my cherry red cast iron pot)

FAVORITE MOVIE: Disney Pixar’s “Monster Inc.”

PETS: Calico Cat - Miss Harriet

FAVORITE VACATION SPOT/ GETAWAY:  Backpacking in Canada

PERSON WHO I ADMIRE MOST: Mother - I get my dance moves from her!

FAVORITE PRIZED POSSESION: Great grandmother’s quilt

THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE ME:  Positive, Thrifty, Crafty

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUNG KIDS ABOUT BECOMING A CHEERLEADER?  Work hard and have FUN!  SMILE!

BEST ADVICE EVER GIVEN TO ME:  Be the reason someone smiles today.  

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: 2009 4-H Kentucky State Fair Champion Knitter - I spent 2 years knitting an afghan.  It finally made it to the glass showcase box! On a serious note, my greatest accomplishment was finding a career where I am able to help others around me and still be able to follow my love for dance.  

FUTURE GOAL(S): Run my very first half marathon this year!  I’ve only done a 5K so big step, or in this case many steps.  Travel to Ireland because of my family heritage and continue to grow and learn as a surgical registered nurse.
