What is the most interesting job you've ever had? I was once hired to paint a dinosaur mural on a little boy's bedroom wall. I had never done anything like that before so I was really nervous but the boy was thrilled with his new T-Rex friend when he got back the next morning!
What is your pet peeve? After working as a waitress and bartender, it drives me crazy when people don't appreciate great service. The restaurant industry is hard and good servers deserve generous tips!
If you could cast an actress to play you in a film about your life, which would it be? I would pick Lucy Liu. She can kick your butt Charlie's Angel style and look great doing it! She seems really down to earth too, which would work well for the less dramatic scenes of my life story.
Do you have any superstitions? I am not very superstitious but my first ballet teacher told me that it was bad luck to whistle in the theater and it still makes me uncomfortable!
What reality TV show would you like to be on? I always wanted to be on “The Real World/Road Rules Challenge”! I never wanted to be on the original shows, just the challenges. I have been skydiving, jumped off the top of the Stratosphere in Las Vegas, and eaten a mopane worm in Africa, so I feel like I could fare well in the "Gauntlet."
If you could go back in time or jump ahead to the future, what would you choose? I would travel back to my childhood and really appreciate the freedom of being a kid! Everyone tells you to enjoy it while it lasts but no matter what, growing up and the responsibilities that come with it creep up on you all too fast if you ask me!
If you could have witnessed one event in history, what would It have been? I would check out the grand opening of Studio 54 in the 1977! I lived in New York during college and think it would love to have experienced the biggest party the city has ever known and dance the night away among the likes of Michael Jackson, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Cher, and Liza Minneli!
Tell us something fans would be surprised to know about you. I do the daily crossword puzzle and will spend hours on the Sunday edition if I have time! I used to play piano competitively and I know how to play poker.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a marine biologist when I was a kid but with the movie Free Willy as my main point of inspiration.
What is your funniest /most embarrassing cheerleading moment? Being a rookie on the team, I guess this is yet to come. Once I split my split hot pink pants while teaching Zumba. I'm glad I got that one out of the way before joining the squad.
