From the Top with Kenisha

Posted Jan 8, 2016

Catch up with Rams Cheerleader Kenisha in this "From the Top" interview.

Kenisha started dancing when she was nine years old. She fell in love immediately, enjoying every visit to her dance studio in O’Fallon, Mo. She continued dancing through high school and went on to coach youth cheerleaders of the Mid-Rivers Football Association.

After graduating from Fort Zumwalt North High School, Kenisha attended University of Missouri-Columbia, where she was a member of Main Attraction Dance Team. After two years on Main Attraction, Kenisha became a member of the Mizzou Golden Girls, the university’s official dance team. Kenisha recently earned her degree in business administration from Mizzou this past spring. Though she was finished with school, she hadn’t quite graduated from dancing just yet.

Coming back to St. Louis, she auditioned for the St. Louis Rams Cheerleaders. She made the team and the rookie hasn’t looked back since. In addition to being a Rams Cheerleader, Kenisha launched her career at Boeing where she works as a procurement agent.
