Favourite Argos memory: Stepping out on the field for the very first time and thinking, 'It feels so different being down here instead of in the stands.' It was truly amazing.

What do you like to do in your spare time? In any spare time I can find, I enjoy going to the gym, shopping and spending time with my friends and family.

How do you stay in shape in the off-season? During the off season I stay in shape by working out and taking fitness classes at the gym.

When did you start dancing/cheerleading? I started dancing when I was seven years old and have always continued it within studios, high school and now on a field.

What inspired you to tryout for the Argos Cheerleaders? Being at games and seeing how amazing the cheerleaders looked on field and knowing that with hard work I could get there one day.

If you could make one dream come true, what would it be? If I could have one dream come true it would be to completely put an end to all bullying around the world and for everyone to actively take a stand.

Tell us something most people don’t know about you: Despite my naturally big hair, I was practically bald until I was three years old and when I finally grew hair it was blonde.

What are you most excited about regarding the 100th Grey Cup? I’m most excited about the festival leading up to the Grey Cup and celebrating with our amazing city. I am also excited about dancing on the field on game day.

Players often have pre-game routines, what’s your pre-game routine? Before games I like to triple check my big blue bag to make sure I am not forgetting anything. I put aside a lot of time for hair and makeup and then I make sure that I do a really good stretch before going on field.

Where do you see yourself in five years? Graduating from university and stepping into my very first high school classroom ready to teach my students.

What or who is your greatest inspiration? My family is my greatest inspiration and that is because they have been with me every step of the way, and will always continue to be. My family has supported my passions and decisions since I was a little girl and they have helped make so many things in my life possible.
