As the Miss Bikini Fitness Winner, you are an inspiration to women everywhere. How did you feel when you found out you won? Tell us a bit about the experience.

The experience I had during the Miss Bikini US pageant was incredible. I had an amazing regional director, Chris Franz, who helped me every step of the way before and during the pageant. Dawn, the owner of the pageant is an amazing coach, and is always available to help, answer questions and give valuable advice. The overall pageant was a learning and enjoyable experience. When I won, I was overjoyed and extremely grateful. I prepared for months to compete in Miss Bikini US and was thrilled that the preparation paid off. 


You were also a participant in Miss Bikini  at Miami Swim Week, what was your favorite experience during that event?

Being a participant at the Miss Bikini US Miami Swim Week Show was exceptionally fun! The stage was beautiful, and the production team was outstanding. I loved being a part of this show and meeting the talented designers. The designers of this show were friendly and very professional. My favorite experience during the show was rehearsals with Dawn and Chris. They made sure we had fun and guided all the models with their walks and poses. Dawn and Chris really make us girls feel like we are a part of a family! Go Bikini Tribe!


Who or what inspired you to get started in modeling?

The first person to inspire me to get into modeling was my late Mom who passed away in 2001. I was only 9 years old and always remember that she always had an aspiration for modeling and fashion. My mom also used to sew clothes and wanted to be a designer. Another person who pushed me into achieving my modeling aspirations is my fiancé. He helped me connect with the right people to be able to participate in pageants and in swimsuit shows.

Tell us about your modeling experience.

The modeling experience that I currently have started with swimsuit competitions. After competing in swimsuit competitions for several years, in 2021 I was selected to be in the Mrs. Maryland America Pageant. In preparation for the Mrs. Maryland America Pageant in 2021, I campaigned to win the most votes for the title Miss Maryland America Ambassador. After earning the title Miss Maryland America Ambassador 22 and winning 2nd runner up, I searched for another pageant to participate in. The Miss Bikini US pageant caught my eye because it’s a pageant and a swimsuit competition. After competing and winning the title, Miss Bikini US Model 22, it opened doors for more modeling opportunities. These opportunities included Miami Swim Week, Las Vegas Swim Week, and New York Fashion Week. 
What is something you like about the Miss Bikini system? 
What I love most about the Miss Bikini US system, is that it is for everyone. Miss Bikini makes every contestant feel that they are a part of the Miss Bikini family. The Miss Bikini Team ensures that everyone has the resources, support, and guidance to achieve their modeling goals and aspirations.  What I also like about the Miss Bikini system, is that it promotes sisterhood, which is why once you join you will be a part of the Miss Bikini Tribe. 

What are the beauty products you can’t live without?

The beauty products that I can’t live without are vitamin C serum, retinal, and any face oil. I also love Kiehl’s clay mask and face moisturizer. 

What is your personal style?

If I were to label my personal style, it would be girly and sophisticated. I love pinks, nudes, and earthy colors when it comes to my wardrobe. I also love any shoe with a heel on it!

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?

 If I were to pick anything to do in my free time, it is spending time with my fiancé and my baby Frenchie, Harley. If I am not with the dog and fiancé. I am either volunteering, meal prepping or at the gym training for the next fashion show. 

What is the most interesting place you have ever visited?

The most interesting place I have visited was Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Ocho Rios is so beautiful, and hot at the same time! The beaches are gorgeous, and the resorts are exceptional. There are plenty of activities and breathtaking places to visit in Ocho Rios, Jamaica which makes it so remarkable.

What do you hope to achieve in the future?

What I hope to achieve in the future is having my own swimwear line. I have always had a passion for swimwear and desire to eventually have my own brand. I also plan on participating in more fashion shows and pageants in the future. Lastly, I have a goal to earn a Master’s in Business Degree before I am 35.
