Why did you decide to participate in DWTS?
I think that it will be fun though at my age I still have some reservations about how I will do. And, I also think it supports a great cause and I am happy to try and raise as much money as possible for the Harrisonburg/Rockingham Children’s Day Care Center. Children are our future and they need a great starting place.
I love to dance because….it makes me feel happy and gives me a freedom of expression that I don’t always have in my daily life.
If there was one thing that we could focus on about you as we promote DWTS, what would that one thing be?
I am a happy person who will always work my hardest when I am happy doing whatever I am doing.
