2012-danica-200I’m currently involved in my forth year studying Communication with an emphasis in Public Speaking at Utah Valley University. I was a four year member of the nationally ranked UVU Dance Team/Spirit Squad and am currently in my first season as Utah Jazz Dancer.

My passion is dance and the art of expression. I’ve traveled extensively through Europe and the United States, because international education is part of my life-long process of learning. I was crowned Miss Tooele County 2009 followed by Miss UVU 2010, which led me to the title of Miss Utah 2011. While competing for the title of Miss America 2012, I was awarded the lifestyle and fitness in swimwear award!

When I’m not dancing I am spending time with my family at our cabin in Oakley, Utah, or I can be found caring for and loving any type of animals. My favorite part of being on the team is being able to represent Utah in a professional sports atmosphere and being part of the Utah Jazz legacy.
