How long have you been dancing/cheering?
I have been dancing for 20 years and twirling my baton for 18 years.
What are your career aspirations outside of being on the cheer team?
I am a University of Regina student working towards a doctorate in Education, as well as a special education teacher. I work with the Regina Public School Division and I teach in a Primary Transition Classroom! I have a great passion for working with children, specifically those with exceptionalities! Besides being a student and a teacher, I am also a part of the University of Regina’s dance team, dancing and twirling for them as well as being the student coordinator! I also spend a lot of time practicing my baton and being a guest coach throughout Canada and the USA.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Some things I enjoy doing on my days off are spending time with my friends and family. I love having people over and hosting so I try to do that a lot on days off. I also enjoy playing disc golf, trying new things, meeting new people and I am always down for an adventure!
What are you most excited for this season?
The most exciting part of the season is getting to see all the fans. I love how excited the crowd gets when we perform and how much they appreciate my baton work. It’s such a surreal experience to be able to show 33,000 the sport of baton twirling. I also enjoy being able to see hang out with my team and perform with some really amazing people.
What is your favorite part of Game Day?
Honestly, I enjoy the entire game. Being in a stadium filled with Rider fans is like none other! We have the best fans in the league and it truly makes the whole game day an unforgettable experience each and every time.
