My idea of a perfect vacation would be in Paris. I would be eating pastries and taking pictures in front of the Eiffel Tower.

I love it all from warming up, our performances, and of course having the best seats in the house. My favorite part of games day would have to be greeting and meeting all the fans right before the game begins.

I love running trails in Weddington with my Wheaton Terrier, Dixie.

What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
My favorite guilty pleasure has to be Raspberry white chocolate truffle cheesecake from the Cheesecake factory.

“The harder I work, the luckier I get.” My father told me this at a young age that I still practice today.

Favorite time of the year?
My favorite time of the year Christmas time because I love spending time with my family and enjoying delicious food. Family traditions include watching the Nutcracker at the Belk Theater, decorating gingerbread houses with my two younger sisters, and opening presents on Christmas morning.
