BIOGRAPHY

Nationality: Proud to be an American! Also Irish, Filipino, Mexican, and German.

Current Occupation: Recruiting Coordinator

Guilty Pleasures? Coffee flavored ice cream and The Bachelor/Bachelorette. 

Best advice for someone who dreams of being on Gold Rush? “Determination is the strength needed to succeed.” My dance teacher told me that when I was very young and it has stuck with me.

What is your favorite thing about the new Levi’s Stadium? My favorite thing about the new stadium is how open it is and how there is not one bad seat. It is great experience for the fans!

In addition to dancing and cheerleading, what do you do for fun? I love going to country concerts. Whether it be a big headliner tour or a small venue I always enjoy some good country music

Words to live by/ Favorite quote? “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”. –Eleanor Roosevelt

What is the most adventurous thing you have ever done? Before joining Gold Rush I traveled the United States and lived out of a suitcase for 10 months!

You just won a million dollars, what is the first thing you would do with it? Pay my parents back for all the money they spent on dance classes growing up and set them up for early retirement since they have done so much for me! 

If you could be on any television show what would it be and why? Nashville! I love country music and have been addicted to the show since it started.
