What are your hobbies? How do you occupy your time to plan for the future?
I graduated in May 2010 from New York University with a degree in Economics and Mathematics. Besides being a Devils Dancer, I am a certified Pilates, TRX Slideboard, and Zumba instructor, and I am currently studying to become ACE certified as a Group Fitness Instructor. My hobbies include DJ'ing music (I've even made some of the songs we dance to at games!), horseback riding, and running.
Have you ever worked for a charity? Who/what would you like to volunteer for?
Yes, I've performed in the Dancers Responding to AIDS benefit in NYC and volunteered at my hometown local soup kitchen while in high school. In college I danced annually at the Washington Square Children's Halloween Parade, Toys for Tots, and Relay for Life. I've run in the Susan G. Komen 5K race for the Cure, and I helped teach dance in clinics for kids' after school programs in Brooklyn. I would love the chance to work with the Make a Wish foundation.
What is it about New Jersey that you love?
The NJ Devils!
I’m proud to be a Devil’s Dancer because…
I simply adore each and everyone one of the girls on my team (we are a big family!), I so look up to and admire my Coach for everything she has done for me, and I love being a part of the Devils organization. Nothing beats meeting all the wonderful kids and fans that come say hi at games! :)
Three fun facts about yourself:
1. I am a two-year Dance All American
2. I was a Co-Captain of the nationally ranked NYU Dance Team with Devil's Dancer Christine, who is also my best friend!
3. I am half Indian, half Croatian.
What was the greatest moment of your life thus far aside from becoming a Devil's Dancer?
Being selected to return as a Devils Dancer for my second season was amazing, but since I can't choose that, I'd have to say being awarded the Team MVP of the NYU Dance Team my senior year in college.
