Biography

Community Involvement:

As a daughter of a Breast Cancer survivor, I have experienced first-hand how cancer can affect individuals and their families. Therefore, I always find ways to support organizations and attend events that help those who are affected by cancer. Last year I had the opportunity to share a behind the scenes look at our special Crucial Catch game on the Eagles social media platforms. Reaching a wide audience was important because it allowed me to share crucial information about reducing the risk for cancer and the importance of early detection. This knowledge not only helped my mother beat her cancer diagnosis but has given her the time to be my biggest cheerleader during games at the Linc.

Favorite Appearance and why:

In February 2022, I had the honor to travel to Oahu, Hawaii for a military tour with ProTour Productions and Armed Forces Entertainment. Being able to represent the Eagles organization in my home state was a once in a lifetime experience that I will cherish forever. Our military members, both present and past, and their families sacrifice so much for our country. Throughout the tour we were able to recognize their hard work, learn about their day to day lives on the job, and make genuine connections with them. Both of my grandfathers served in the Army. My grandfather Clifford was present at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941. Being able to tell his story to current service men and women while visiting the Arizona Memorial was a moment I will never forget.

Personal Time:

I love experimenting with different elements to create arts and crafts. These artistic activities include: taking a painting class, building a desk out of wood, creating a piece of jewelry using metal and glass, scrapbooking to make a memory book, taking scissors and paint to clothes to update my wardrobe, or using clay to make a new dinnerware set. I love using my free time to think about what my next masterpiece might be!
