Redskins Nation,

I am beyond humbled and grateful to be returning for my third season as a First Lady of Football! My experiences within this team and sisterhood have been the best of my life and surely nothing short of amazing. Representing my teammates as the 2013 Swimsuit calendar cover, dancing in the 2014 Chinese New Year Parade in Hong Kong, and cheering the skins on to an NFC East Championship last year are just some of the memories I will forever hold close to my heart.

Redskins Nation,

I am beyond humbled and grateful to be returning for my third season as a First Lady of Football! My experiences within this team and sisterhood have been the best of my life and surely nothing short of amazing. Representing my teammates as the 2013 Swimsuit calendar cover, dancing in the 2014 Chinese New Year Parade in Hong Kong, and cheering the skins on to an NFC East Championship last year are just some of the memories I will forever hold close to my heart.

Born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I am a small town girl with big dreams and a big heart. I began cheerleading when I was just six years old. Immediately, I fell in love with the sport and as I continued to grow, so did my passion for performing. I danced for a hip-hop dance troupe throughout middle school and in high school, my insatiable hunger for more led me to competitive cheerleading and gymnastics. I took my first ballet class in college just for fun and found that even as an adult, I still had so much to learn! That's the beauty of dance- it's dynamic and there's always room for growth. As a returning Washington Redskins Cheerleader, I still enthusiastically look forward to challenging myself every day to become a better and stronger dancer, as well as an individual, while cheering on the best team in the NFL!!

In May 2012, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree with honors from Johns Hopkins University while cheering three seasons for the local NFL team in Baltimore. Currently, I work full time permanent nights as a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit nurse. When I'm not shaking my pom-poms or saving lives, you can find me on an adrenaline-pumping adventure (e.g., snowboarding, surfing, skydiving, cliff jumping, boating), sipping iced black coffee, or simply enjoying a nap.

I cannot thank my friends and family enough for the ongoing support and encouragement I have received during this journey. To my mother and sister, my biggest fans, thank you for never letting me give up on my dreams; I would not be the woman I am today without the two of you.

It has been my greatest honor and privilege to dance beside and learn from the most remarkable and talented women I have ever known while pursuing my passion during my past two seasons as a Washington Redskins Cheerleader. I am overwhelmed with stoke to get this season started and I can't wait to see all of YOU - the best fans in the NFL- at FedExField!

Hail to the Redskins! Xx

 

Cheers,
