Goals in life

I hope to become a pediatric physical therapist, have a family, travel often, and always be happy and healthy!

Person you admire & why

Our director, Stephanie Judah! She has been my dance teacher since I was 8 years old. She has taught me everything I know about dancing, living a positive life, doing all things with passion, believing in myself, and encouraging others.

What’s on your bucket list?

Road trip down the Pacific Coast Highway, own a chocolate lab, go on a medical mission trip as a physical therapist, hike Pike’s Peak, and cheer at a Super Bowl.

Favorite Cartoon Character

Tigger – I love his confidence, optimism, and cheerful personality!

Favorite Charity & why

Saint Luke’s Children’s SPOT – As an aspiring pediatric physical therapist, I love that donations to The Children’s SPOT help provide speech, physical, and occupational therapy to children with developmental delays and disabilities, regardless of their families’ ability to pay.

Why did you decide to audition to be a CC?

I decided to audition because this program is comprised of so many things I am passionate about, especially dancing! I have been dancing nearly my entire life, and I love performing! After a few years without dancing in college, I was really missing the performance side of the dance world, so what better way to dance again than to perform for 80,000 fans in my hometown and favorite city?!

Favorite CC Appearance to date

My favorite appearance to date has been the 2016 Draft Day Party. It was so fun to meet Chiefs Kingdom and perform as a CC for the first time!

Best Workshop or Audition moment

My favorite part of auditions this year was going through dance drills at prelims on Friday night. It’s such a fun, stress-free, supportive environment where the rookies can all get the jitters out before the veterans join us on Saturday. It’s just a big dance class where we can cheer each other on and watch each other shine!
