Ceilynn was born in Crystal City Manitoba but raised in Calgary making her a true country girl. Her love for football and dance led her to audition for the Calgary Stampeders Outriders in 2003 and she cheered on the Red and White for 8 incredible years as a dancer, tumbler, caller and eventually the Captain. During that time she also joined the Calgary Roughnecks Drill Crew for 8 years, the Calgary Flames Big Country Ice Girls for 3 years, the Stampede Burlesque group The Calgary Spurs and helped coach the Calgary Crush Basketball's Dance Team. In 2012 and 2013 Ceilynn was back with the Outriders creating original choreography and contributing to the game day performances. Ceilynn has since retired from the world of dance and cheerleading and now spends her time as the co-owner and Director of First Friends Preschool & Educational Centre. Ceilynn graduated from the University of Calgary with her Bachelor of Education and has her Bachelor of Arts with a major in English from St. Mary's University College. She also holds a certificate in Adult Education from Mount Royal University and is pleased to add her Level 3 Child Development Supervisor Certificate to the list. The completion of these courses has given Ceilynn the knowledge and background to understand and teach at all levels. She has numerous years of experience in teaching both gymnastics and dance, recreationally and at a competitive level, which has taught her how to help children to develop their skills. As a mother of 3, Ceilynn works hard to foster a love for all things football and cheerleading in her home. Football games have always been a huge part of family life, although there is a constant rivalry between Ceilynn and her husband. He is a Saskatchewan Roughriders fan, which makes for some very interesting game days. Ceilynn is truly excited to be involved with the Canadian Football Cheerleaders Alumni Organization and looks forward to another excellent CFL season.
