What made you join the Luvabulls?
I’ve been a fan of the Chicago Bulls for as long as I can remember. Years back, when I was at a Bulls game with my family, I couldn’t stop watching the Luvabulls. From that moment, I knew I wanted to audition for the Luvabulls as soon as I graduated college.
What's your favorite part of the job?
The games of course! I also enjoy the special appearances, charity events and international travel opportunities. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to Greece, Cyprus, Japan, China, Italy, France, Canada, The Netherlands and England. I’ve enjoyed meeting so many people with whom I still keep in contact!
What's the toughest part?
Long days; I’m the Executive Director of an Assisted Living Community, so I commute straight to rehearsal or games after work. My days can be 15 hours long, 3-4 times a week, but I appreciate every minute of it!
What is it that first attracted you to dance? And why do you love it?
Honestly, at a young age, I had so much fun dancing with my friends after school. Then it grew to be a passion of mine and it was a way to stay active. I loved learning different styles of dance from different choreographers and performing at a recital at the end of the year. Now, I’m blessed to be dancing every week in front of 22,000 fans in the United Center!
What are your other passions?
Fitness, traveling, helping others and spending time with family, especially my nephews and fiancé!
Anything you want to say to the fans in the Philippines?
Kumusta! Salamat sa inyong lahat sa pagsuporta ng NBA! GO BULLS!
