What are some major achievements or accolades that you've accumulated?

 As an NFL cheerleader I was blessed to be part of our military tours that entertained troops on military bases. Thanks to the Titans' only appearance in Super Bowl 34, I'm also able to say that I cheered at the Super Bowl. Outside of professional cheerleading, I was voted one of the Top 10 Bachelorettes in Nashville, Employee of the Month at Zander Insurance, Nominated for Ms. Of The Year for the Beauty It's Everywhere Awards, appeared on several panels discussing race and colorism, and most recently was named to The Longest Day Business Professionals Board and the Fundraising Committee for Project Connect Nashville.   

How do you use your platform as an influencer to spread "What's Good" to the world and who have you impacted? 

I've never really considered myself an influencer because it just never seemed like something that was in my wheelhouse. I mean yes I have some social media followers, but I do my best to live my life like Jesus. I work hard to bring recognition to my platform of Alzheimer's Awareness by participating in events like The Longest Day. I was recently featured on Nashville's WSMV news for my work with the Alzheimer's Association of Tennessee. 

What are some projects that you are currently working on or promoting? 

I'm working on my 4th Annual Dance 4 Gran. It will be held on Sunday, June 20, 2021. It will be a dance party featuring different dance fitness styles to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association The Longest Day. I am also on the Fundraising Committee for Project Connect Nashville. We are hosting a dinner that will be held on April 8, 2021.

Who do you have to credit for your success? 

First I have to give all praise to Jesus Christ who is my Lord and Savior. Without Him, I could do nothing. In a close second would be my family. They support and encourage me no matter what! My journey through life would be nothing without their love, gentle rebukes, and comedy.
