Biography

Hidden Talent: I have been shooting archery since age 12.

Favorite Charity: I am a member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority and our national philanthropy raises money for victims of domestic violence. In addition, I enjoy participating in events held by the Susan G. Komen Foundation since I have a history of breast cancer in my family.

Pets: I have an adorable Puggle named Dwight.

Your favorite Off the Field experience: I had the opportunity to appear at the NFL Draft in New York City this past April, which was an incredible experience. I got to experience the Draft, explore Radio City Music Hall, and meet with tons of NFL fans from across the country!

Biggest Fear: Cockroaches

Craziest Thing You’ve Ever Done: I went hiking in North Carolina and jumped off of a 40 foot waterfall. It was an incredible experience and I would love to do it again!

Favorite Hobby: I read roughly a book a week. I love all genres and I recently finished the series "A Song of Ice and Fire".

Favorite Quote: "The best thing we have to hold onto in life is each other" – Audrey Hepburn

Favorite Movie: "Hook" with Robin Williams and Julia Roberts.

Favorite TV Show: "Game of Thrones" on HBO

Famous person you would most like to spend a day with: If I could go back in time I would spend the day with Gene Kelly. I fell in love with “Singing in the Rain” at a very young age and I think he was a fantastic dancer who always captured his audience’s attention.

Your go-to Philadelphia area restaurant: Manayunk Brewery. It is fun to sit outside overlooking the river when the weather is nice.

Favorite cartoon character: Peter Pan, I wish I could fly.

Best advice you’ve ever received: Believe in yourself and the rest will follow.

Something on your bucket list: I want to go skydiving.

Pre-game superstitions or rituals: Ever since my first dance recital my mom would say, "What does Winnie the Pooh say?" and I would say, "Think, Think, Think." Even today she makes sure to send me that message before all my games and it helps boost my confidence on the field.

Song that gets you pumped up: "Shake Ya Tailfeather" by Murphy Lee.
