Hometown: Topeka, KS
One of my proudest accomplishments thus far was representing the LA Clippers at the 2016 NBA All-Star Games in Toronto. One dancer from each team was selected to be a part of the All-Star Dance Team. Having the opportunity to perform with ladies from across the league in my first season was a huge honor.
Some of the best and most memorable adventures I have had to date were while I was performing in countries around the world as captain of the LA Clippers dance team. Getting to explore and emerge into other cultures was so inspiring.
There are a series of moments that lead me to where I am today, but this last year of my life challenged me in ways like never before when I had to put my dance career on hold to have ankle surgery. It was a rough transition not being able to have that outlet for the first time in 20 years. But it gave me the opportunity to get to know myself on a deeper level and focus on expanding other areas of my career while I healed.
I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, so if I could be anyone for a day I'd want to be Harry so I could do magic and fly!
I have a few lucky numbers, but the one I see most often is 11. I am always seeing 11:11 or 1:11–– and I was born at 2:11 in the afternoon. Ironically, if you add up the 1's in 11 you get my case number: 2!
My parents have always been my biggest supporters and have played such a huge role in getting me to where I am today, so the first thing I would want to do if I won the $1 million would be to give a good portion to them to help with their retirement.
Growing up in Kansas and watching this show with my family when I was 12 years old, I would have never imagined that I would be selected to be one of the models! It's an incredible feeling to be a part of a show that already has such a legacy. Getting to work alongside Howie Mandel and this group of talented ladies is truly a blessing.
When I first moved to Los Angeles from Kansas, my roommate and I had an Etsy business to make extra money by designing jewelry and knitting bikinis!
