Hello Bucs Fans!
I can't even begin to explain what an amazing four seasons it has been cheering for the best team in the NFL! Thank you for making the sidelines so enjoyable. Before I retire my poms and boots, I thought I would take this time to recap the best four years of my life.
Being born and raised in the Tampa Bay area, I have always lived a Bucs life and knew that one day I would have the best seats in Raymond James Stadium. The sidelines! Thinking back to my rookie season, I would have never guessed what an impact this team would have on my life.
The women of TBBC (past and present) are the most well rounded, beautiful and talented women in the world! The lifelong friendships gained on this team are irreplaceable. We support each other through the very best of times and the most challenging creating a unique and special bond.

One of my fondest memories was when the team traveled to London for the International Series. Game day was amazing! Three days of festivities brought busloads of excited fans from as far away as Scotland. The stadium was sold out and when we entered the fans roared. What a sense of pride knowing we represented the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so far away from home.
This past January, I was chosen by my team to represent Tampa Bay in the 2014 Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii. I was privileged to meet the most dynamic women from each team in the NFL. It is amazing how close we all became in such a short amount of time. We all have our own traditions but ultimately we all love the same things; performing, football and our fans!
I have cheered at Raymond James Stadium for the past four seasons. Even when the temperature hits 100 degrees, it felt effortless because of the love and support from our fans. Buccaneer fans are the best in the league! Rain or shine, hot or cold you are there to support our Bucs! I will never forget standing in our lines for the National Anthem as the jets fly over and our American flag sway before kick off!
Before I say my final farewell, I want to first thank the Buccaneers organization for trusting me as an ambassador for this team. It was an incredible honor and I will always be a Tampa Bay Buccaneer Cheerleader at heart. I would also like to thank the alumni for carrying on the legacy and traditions of TBBC. A great big shout out to the soon to be 2014-15 TBBC. Never forget the hard work and dedication it takes to be part of this team as you are role models to so many. Hang tight and get ready for an experience of a life time!
Thank you for the most unforgettable time of my life!
