Why Maplewood? We moved to Maplewood when I was 6, and I’ve lived here all my life. I absolutely love this town for being small, but very diverse at the same time. It is really a beautiful, safe place to live. I love the parks—one of  my favorite things to do is to meet up with friends, grab a cup of coffee, and sit and relax in the park and just enjoy the scenery.

What are your favorite spots in Maplewood?
The Maplewood village. There are so many little boutiques, restaurants, and things to do. My favorite restaurant is the Village Trattoria, a little Italian place I have been going to for years. The food is amazing.

Tell us about your work… This will be my second year being a part of the NY Jets Flight Crew Cheerleaders. We go through a training camp every summer before football season begins. We practice three days a week—four if there is a game coming up that week. We are present at every home game during the season. Even through cold weather—rain and snow—we are out there on the field dancing. One of my favorite things about the Flight Crew is that we do  a lot of charity events throughout the year. We really get out there and give back to the community.

What might people be surprised to learn about you? I would love to be able to host my own radio show—it would be a dream come true. In college I had my own show for two years and that’s when I knew being a radio personality was something I had a passion for. I want to keep pursuing it.
