Hidden Talent: After working at a men’s formal wear store during college, I am actually very good at sewing. I can even tailor suits!

Favorite Charity: Susan G. Komen for the Cure is a charity of which I am very supportive. This charity has saved millions of lives through conducting research and raising awareness of breast cancer. 

Pets: Being the animal lover I am, it is no surprise I have a lot of pets! Two black Labradors, Pepper and Fudge, a tiny black cat named Kitty, and a big orange tubby cat named Big Cat.  

Your favorite Off the Field experience: This year I was lucky to have many amazing opportunities to take part in events, such as the Eagles Youth Partnership Playground Build, and Military Day. I also participated in the Eagles Huddle Up for Autism Event. I had so much fun with all of the kids, and I loved seeing how much this meant to them as their faces lit up with smiles. Being able to give back and go to these events is my favorite part about being a member of the Eagles Cheerleading squad. 

Craziest Thing You’ve Ever Done: On a vacation to Oahu, Hawaii with my closest friend and her family, we spent a day in the North Shore on a quiet local beach. I climbed a steep cliff there, and dove off into the ocean! It was not a tourist attraction, and was a very, very tricky climb!  The rush was incredible, and I will never forget the view of the beach just before I took that courageous dive into the blue Pacific Ocean. 

What you like to do in your spare time: When I have free time, I love to read. I enjoy getting lost in a captivating novel, or even just pick up and read one of my favorite chapters from a book I have read more times than I can count. 

Favorite Quote: "It is our choices that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities."

Favorite movie: "Tommy Boy" - I still laugh every time I watch it! 

Favorite TV show: "Game of Thrones"

Famous person you would most like to spend a day with: I would love to spend a day with Beyonce Knowles, and see what a day in her life is like. She is an incredibly talented woman. I admire her as a performer, and as a woman with the utmost class. She balances an amazing career with her family, while managing to remain out of the negative tabloids. It would be awesome to get a chance to see her life behind the scenes- and maybe learn a few moves!

Your go-to Philadelphia area restaurant: My favorite restaurant in the area is Iron Hill. They have great food with a huge menu to choose from, and the atmosphere is fun, yet laid back. 

Favorite cartoon character and why: I love Pixar animated movies, and my favorite character yet is Wall-E. He is an adorable little robot, but has the biggest heart! 

Best advice you’ve ever received: Be yourself, and be the best you! This is very simple, yet great advice to live by. When you are true to yourself, and live up to your fullest potential, there is no better accomplishment.

Something on your bucket list: Touring countries in Europe is definitely number one on my bucket list. I have always been eager to travel, and I would love to spend time in Europe. It would be fun to test my language skills in France, too! 

Song that gets you pumped up: "What is and What Should Never Be" - Led Zeppelin
