Why did you decide to audition to be a CC?

I completely LOVE our program! This program is an incredible opportunity as it provides us with a platform to be positive strong role model for the youth, especially for the little girls. This program has enriched my life greatly and allows me to proudly represent the one and only Chiefs Kingdom!

Favorite CC Appearance to date

Hands down IRAQ!!!! Back in 2011, 6 ladies were selected to represent the Chiefs Cheerleaders in a military tour of Iraq and Kuwait during the 4th of July holiday. We spent 12 days getting to know and performing our variety show for the men and women of the armed forces. The whole experience was truly humbling, eye opening, and mind blowing; I came out of that experience with a greater appreciation for those individuals who give their life to protect our country for us. I ended that tour with a new found respect for my dad who dedicated 17 years of his life to the Army spanning multiple tours and many months away from home.

Best Moment as a CC to date

Hmmm, a tie!!! Cheering at Wembley Stadium for one of our 2015 home game against the Detroit Lions. It was a trip of a lifetime and a proud moment for us Chiefs fans to bring the Chiefs Kingdom’s “Sea of Red” over to the UK, Uniting the Kingdoms! The second was being announced as the 2015 Pro Bowl representative for my team. I never ever imagined I would be chosen to represent. It was a complete honor.
