I can’t choose just one experience, because the event in its entirety was simply amazing. From the early morning sunrise photo shoots, to bonding with models from all over the world, to competing in our unique fantasy wear and beautiful evening gowns, I just had the time of my life! Oh, and winning the prestigious title of Miss Bikini United States wasn’t too bad either if I do say so myself! 😜
Who or what inspired you to get started in modeling?
I actually got discovered in a shopping mall at the age of 12, and I’ve enjoyed modeling ever since!
Tell us about your modeling experience.
I work with multiple agencies all across the country and enjoy how every job is different! Variety is the spice of life right?!
From print work ads, to music videos and commercials, to becoming a Monster Energy model, winning multiple pageant titles such as Miss Pennsylvania Princess America, World’s Perfect Most Beautiful Miss, Miss Photogenic at many competitions including Miss Bikini US, and most recently modeling for Fergie’s new line have been some of the most enjoyable moments of my life. I cannot wait to continue my career in the modeling industry and am looking forward to many more exciting adventures.
What is your best fitness tip?
Moderation is key! Eating healthy is extremely important, but it is also equally important to allow yourself to indulge from time to time.
What are the beauty products you can’t live without?
I’m obsessed with Urban Decay all nighter products! They really do last long, and it’s great for shoots so you don’t have to keep re-applying and end up looking cakey.
What is your personal style?
Anything that includes some kind of sparkle! I don’t mind being in the spotlight, so why not shine while you’re at it?!
What is one of the most interesting shoots that you have done?
When I modeled for a shower head company. The video shoot took about 8 hours and I had to do so many takes under the actual shower! By the end of the day my face was chapped, but the end result turned out perfectly! It was displayed online and in video advertisements right in stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot!
What is your favorite thing to do in your free time ?
I enjoy creating artwork, riding extreme roller coasters, teaching fitness classes, traveling anywhere (especially to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter), bowling, shopping, spending time with family, friends, and Sparkle (my chihuahua)!
What is the most interesting place you have ever visited?
I would have to say when I had the opportunity to travel by yacht to a private island in Puerto Vallarta! I felt like we were in a completely different world!
What do you hope to achieve in the future?
Professionally, I plan to expand my modeling and acting career to its fullest potential. Personally, I would love to have a family of my own and travel to as many places as possible.
