Hello, Colts Nation! I am excited to share a little about myself as your "Cheerleader of the Week!"
I am humbled to be cheering on the Colts from the sidelines for a fifth year! Being an Indianapolis Colts Cheerleader has given me some amazing experiences and allowed me the opportunity to meet incredible fans. Some of my favorite memories include dancing on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," interviewing celebrities on the red carpet for Super Bowl XLVI, singing the National Anthem at two Colts games and traveling to Djibouiti, Africa to entertain troops with my teammate, Anna. I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful organization and cheering beside the most outstanding women I have ever met. Being a 'Sweetheart of the Horseshoe' is a tremendous honor and privilege.
I recently moved to Indianapolis and am working at St. Elmo's Steakhouse. I aspire to be a sideline reporter, preferably football, of course, and never have to retire from my home away from home. On my rare days off, I love going to the movies and spending as much time as possible with my family, friends, and my miniature American Eskimo dog, Kevin. My family lives in my hometown of Holland, Indiana and comes to Lucas Oil Stadium every home game to cheer on the best team in the NFL and their favorite cheerleader! Thank you mom, dad, Matt and Klen for your amazing support and teaching me how to put God first!
This week we are preparing for our game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, and I cannot wait to be performing at Lucas Oil Stadium! Game days are my favorite part about being an Indianapolis Colts Cheerleader, and I am thrilled to be on the sidelines for another season. See you Sunday, Colts fans!

What's your favorite memory in your Colts Cheer uniform?** It is impossible for me to only choose one favorite memory in my Colts Cheer uniform, so I will pick three. I loved performing live on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" during Super Bowl XLVI, meeting our brave troops in Djibouti, Africa and singing the National Anthem at two Colts games.Last year you went to Africa on a Military Tour. What did you do while you were there, and what did you do to prepare for that experience? While at Camp Lemmoneir in Djibouti, my teammate, Anna, and I spent most of our time meeting troops and getting tours around the facility. We had multiple autograph sessions, enjoyed karaoke, watched a lot of football and even got to go wake boarding on the red sea. We ran in a mud run with soldiers and even tried cross fit in 110 degree temperatures. It was the best experience, and I am so thankful for the brave men and women who are defending our great country. Thank you for your service!You have been a Colts Cheerleader for five years. What's your favorite routine and why? My favorite routine I have ever done as a Colts Cheerleader would have to be "Thunderstruck" by ACDC! We have danced to this song multiple times, and I am confident I will always remember it!If you had the option to get a million dollars or live ten years longer, which would you choose and why? I would definitely choose to live ten years longer! More time on this precious Earth with my amazing friends and family is invaluable. Also, maybe I could keep cheering and get a couple Super Bowl rings!Share with us your most memorable moment with a fan!
My most memorable moment with a fan is with my buddy, Josh, from Down Syndrome Indiana. He and I met last year during rehearsal for a half time performance we did, and we continue to hang out to this day. He is such a light in my life and is always filled with joy. I am so thankful cheerleading has led me to him and his family and hope you all have the chance to meet him one day. Performing with him on game day was absolutely amazing!
