Best experience of being a New Orleans Saintsation so far: With this being my second year on the team, I have many great memories but nothing compares to my first game. I can’t explain how much of an adrenaline rush it is the first time you line up at the north end zone and wait to take the field. It’s an experience I will always remember.

Advice for younger girls: Don’t be afraid to fail! Most of the victories that you hear about are from people who may have made several mistakes, but learned from them and kept pushing themselves to succeed.

What is your most outstanding attribute: I think I have a really good ability to get along well with many different personalities. I’ve been fortunate, in a sense, that I can easily begin a conversation with people I may not even know and create a connection.
Other than your family, who is a positive role model in your life: My godfather; his motivation and zest for life, as well as having a strong faith, is inspiring. I think these values are seen throughout his family and I hope to instill the same principles within my own.
