BIOGRAPHY

Gold Rush Captain

Nationality: Croatian and Italian

Current Occupation: Own and manage a women's online clothing boutique.

Dream Occupation? Dance is such a huge part of my life. I have always dreamt of one day directing a professional dance team. 

Guilty Pleasures? Drinking Red Bulls and eating Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. 

Best workout? Since dancing is such a passion of mine, I love taking Zumba classes. They are the best cardio workouts and a lot of fun too.

Best advice for someone who dreams of being on Gold Rush? The best advice for aspiring cheerleaders is to never give up and always strive to improve. Never settle for being good, motivate yourself to be the best.

Favorite song to dance to? My favorite song to dance to is Turn Down for What! It gets me pumped up and ready to go for game day!

In addition to dancing and cheerleading, what do you do for fun? Recently I have taken up photography.  I love being able to style different outfits for my clothing store and then photograph them.

What is the most adventurous thing you have ever done? Last year I took a trip to Cancun where I was able to swim with the dolphins. Being that I am terrified of the ocean, it was one of the most adventurous things I have done.

What is your favorite memory from Gold Rush? My favorite memory would have to be representing the 49ers last year at the Pro Bowl. It was by far one of the best experiences of my Gold Rush career.
