You're heading to Guam on our Super Bowl Tour. What are you looking forward to?
The warm weather!!! Plus, I'm really excited to visit a place I probably would never have the opportunity to visit otherwise.
As a Holistic Coach, we're sure you're packing list
includes a few items most people would not think to
bring. What are some "must haves" you're planning
to take on your trip?
Traveling in general is harder for those that are health conscious. While I'm excited to try new foods that are local to the area, I've also packed lots of my normal snacks to give me options when real whole foods aren't on the menu. The food corner of my suitcase includes: raw nuts, seaweed snacks, green tea, kale chips, buffalo jerky, and a dark chocolate bar (yes, dark chocolate can be good for you). More than anything else, my absolute must have would be my essential oils. They address everything from my beauty regiment to natural medicine, and I never leave home without them.
Congratulations on being a former Pro Bowl Cheerleader! Can you share with us a moment that still stands out to you.
That's easy, while the whole week was amazing the moment that stands out the most is right before we took the field for half-time. The Goo Goo Dolls were performing and a large group of young girls were on the field dancing to Notbroken as we lined up. As we waited to take the field, I was suddenly overwhelmed with the realization that I'm actually here. I looked around and took in all the people, all the new friends I had made, and I listened to the words of the song. I felt like someone was whispering in my ear "this is just the beginning." It makes me tear up just thinking about it.
We hear you have fostered dogs. What made you want to foster and are there any lessons from those experiences that you've carried into other areas of your life?
What fond memories. Well, mostly fond memories, our first dog did chew up the cord to my straightener, but then again I balled like a baby when I had to take her to adoption day that week.
When my husband and I first got married it was really important for us to give back; however we didn't have a lot of extra money. We did have a home and extra love to give, so fostering was our way to contribute to something greater than ourselves.
I didn't realize the magnitude of what we did that year until a few years later when I met a lady walking her dog in my best friends neighborhood. She was an older women and my friend said she walked the dog everyday. It turns out it was one of the dogs we fostered. By keeping that one dog for a week we saved it from being put to sleep and gave someone a companion in life.
Having been a Tennessee Titans Cheerleader for six seasons, you've met many fans. What makes Tennessee Titans fans the best in the league in your opinion?
Even though I've been cheering for six seasons, I took three years off during that time. What's so amazing to me is I still see fans at games and in the community that have continued to be loyal to our team since my first season in 2006. Win or lose, hot or cold they are happy to be there and you form a relationship with them because you both know cheering for the Titans is more that just a Sunday event - it's a community, it's a family.
