Favorite Argo memory: I have 2 favorite Argo memories. The first is always the first time I stepped on field and I saw my parents in the stands. They have always supported me in everything I do, and it has been such a blessing to get to share my Argo experiences with them. My second is getting to see my 4-year-old nephew in the stands shouting my name! He is the next generation on Argo fan and I can’t help smile a little bigger when I see him cheering me on.

What do you like to do in your spare time? I love to go in mini road trips and explore the world around me.

How do you stay in shape in the off season? I really enjoy working out! In the off season I try to mix it up between cardio and strength training. Dancers are athletes too! I also take some drop-in dance classes in Toronto to keep my dance brain active.

When did you start dancing/cheerleading? I started training in Jazz and Ballet when I was 5. I started taking hip hop in high school, and competed in Jazz and Hip Hop with my University Dance Team.

What inspired you to try-out for the Argos cheerleading team? I had seen the Argos Cheerleaders dance the year before I auditioned and thought to myself, “How amazing would it be to dance on that field and be with such a talented group of women.” My University dance coach sent an email about local auditions when the next season came around and I knew I had to be at that audition. I was so nervous, but the audition process was amazing and the rest is history!

If you could make one dream come true what would it be? It already has! I get to be a part of the most amazing team in the CFL and be a part of history in this 100th Grey Cup Season!

Tell us something most people don’t know about you: For some reason I can’t flex my left arm! I work out both arms equally, but I can never actually flex my left bicep!

What are you most excited about regarding the 100th Grey Cup? I can’t to see how our city transforms and all the people that will come. It will be an experience of a lifetime to be able to celebrate the 100th Grey Cup in my city!

Players often have pre game routines, what’s your pre game routine? I plug my ipod into my speakers and run sideline dances with the other Captain Kristy. It is a way to get any pre-game jitters out and just get my body moving! Plus it is fun just to have a mini dance party before we go out to perform for the fans.
