My day job is managing a clinic in Dallas, applying the Doctor of Medicine degree that I earned from the University of Texas Health Science Center School of Medicine in San Antonio, Texas. Yet I’m always game for a good challenge, so over the years I’ve trained and tried out for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader tryouts about 10 times (starting at age 34). I enjoy the challenge of performing, meeting criteria, and enduring the intensity. I often say, “Never give up!” and live out that principle every day.

My journey hasn’t been easy. In 2012 I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), affecting the joints in both of my hands and feet. Although there is no known cure for RA, I am currently taking medication to manage my joint pain, and it hasn’t stopped me from pursuing my dream.

Throughout my life, I’ve pushed myself to try different things and to compete. I give 110 percent in everything I do, and hope my journey inspires other women to go after their dreams. One of my big goals is to shatter age barriers. Anything is possible!
