What is the best thing about being a Broncos Cheerleader?
Having the opportunity to work with such incredible women and an exceptional coaching staff. These women have become my close friends and the sisters I've never had. We share an incredible bond. Besides my teammies, I absolutely love the thrill of game day, getting to cheer for my hometown team, and perform for the greatest fans in the NFL!

What is your most memorable experience/game?
The most memorable experience I’ve had as a DBC is traveling to Iraq and Kuwait to perform for our military troops. We had the pleasure of traveling to several bases to sign autographs, take pictures, eat meals with the soldiers, and perform our show. The men and women I met were some of the most courageous and heroic people I’ve ever known. It was an emotional, indescribable experience that I’ll cherish forever.
