Favorite Quote: 
“Somewhere behind the athlete you've become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back... play for her.” -Mia Hamm
Future Goals: 
To get hired by an engineering company in Colorado working towards bettering the lives of the people in the community and worldwide.
Favorite Twirling Memories: 
For a team routine with Colorado Twirls we performed to Thriller by Michael Jackson. We tore up our costume to match the song and performed at several events including competitions. The PAC 12 Championship game where Arizona played Oregon at Levi Stadium. The team had such a good time on that trip and we made a lot of memories.
Greatest Twirling Accomplishments: 
Qualifying for PreTrials every time I have attempted the event, twirling for football games at my high school as part of the marching band, doing three straight no-drop dance twirl routines at Nationals, and being a twirler for the University of Arizona.
Best UA Twirler Experience: 
The night time band day performance because the feeling of being on the field at the end of the performance was indescribable.
What I love about the Pride of Arizona: 
The unity of the entire Pride and the commitment and dedication that each person puts into the organization.
Random fact about me: 
My favorite movie as a child was the Lion King and my favorite food was frozen peas.
