After high school I:  went to college for a few years, and then enlisted into the US Army

Currently I:  am gearing up for a 3rd deployment as a Combat Medic in the US Army

My most memorable twirling moment:  would be my last Massachusetts State Competition in Townsend before I left for basic training...not only did I place top 3 in every event that I entered, but it was a memorable way to end a great twirling time with the Bay State Strutters.

What life lesson I learned from twirling:  is that not everything will come with ease.  You have to be patient, keep trying, and never give up!  If at first you don't succeed, try harder!

Other:  I have been serving as a Sergeant in the United States Army for over 5 1/2 years now.  I have competed in a few pageants and have most recently won the titles of 2008 Miss Massachusetts United States, 2008 Miss Massachusetts International 2nr Runner-Up, 2006 & 2007 Miss Massachusetts Tourism.
