Your favorite Off the Field experience: Performing at the prestigious 2012 amfAR Inspirational Gala in New York City! Not only was the event for one of the leading foundations benefiting AIDS research, but it was also a red carpet moment for my teammates and I. We performed on a 100-yard fashion runway with Fergie and fashion designer Marc Jacobs sitting in the front row.
Favorite Hobby: Dancing and exercise have always been my stress-relievers. I’m always looking for new fitness classes or challenges to push myself. I also love going to the spa for some “me” time.
Favorite Quote: "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind." - Dr. Seuss
Favorite Movie: "Garden State" – Mostly because of the awesome soundtrack!
Favorite TV Show: "The Layover with Anthony Bourdain". Anthony Bourdain’s sense of humor plus learning about different cities throughout the world is a great combination. The Philadelphia episode is hands down the best!
Famous person you would most like to spend a day with: Ellen DeGeneres. To me, she is the funniest and most genuine person on television. She is known for her dancing, stand-up comedy, vegan food, giving back, and practical jokes. What more could I ask for in one day?
Your go-to Philadelphia area restaurant: Mixto. If you like good music, art, and Latin cuisine, this is your place. They even offer Salsa dancing on select nights!
Favorite cartoon character and why: Belle from "Beauty and the Beast". When I was younger I dreamed of being Belle. Okay, maybe I actually thought I was Belle. What girl doesn’t want to be a Disney princess?
Best advice you’ve ever received: "Don’t sweat the small stuff". I am a perfectionist so I have to remind myself of this advice when something doesn’t go exactly how I intended.
Something on your bucket list: I would love to have my own brand of fitness studios and workouts. I am passionate about creating new ways to stay fit by incorporating my years as a dancer and my fitness expertise.
Pre-game superstitions or rituals: When we are lining up in the cheerleader tunnel before going out on the field, I always take a moment to myself to mentally prepare. I remind myself of how fortunate I am to have the experience and how hard I worked to get there.
Song that gets you pumped up: I put on Dave Matthews Band when I want to pump up my energy. Their song "Two Step" is a particular favorite.
