“The first time I stepped on the field was one of the most amazing feelings of my life… I can’t even try to describe it. However, by helping ladies get on to the sidelines I hope to share that moment with them and hope to show them how it feels to perform in front of over 90,000 fans. But it’s not all about performing in front of the fans but being a role model for young ladies who want to stand where you are. After ten years of being a Washington Redskins Cheerleader, I have so many unforgettable memories and stories. It was hard. It was fun. And at times it was freezing (LOL!); however, it was all worth it. Being a cheerleader is so much more than just wearing fancy uniforms…. Its all about your respect and commitment to your team members, your love of performing, and most of all, your commitment to make others feel special…. something so little from you can mean so much to others. I have traveled all over the world and experienced so many great things and made so many friends… friends I will have for a lifetime. No matter what – We were and are always there for each other.”
