As a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? I changed my mind a lot about what I wanted to be when I grew up. First, it was a veterinarian. Then it changed from a teacher to a forensic scientist to a physical therapist and then I finally decided on being an athletic trainer in my junior year.
Describe a favorite childhood memory. I went to Disney World with my family multiple times a month for many years when I was younger. Each time was just as special as the first and it never got old. Meeting my favorite Disney princess Ariel over and over was just as exciting each time. I especially loved the times when we would go with our friends or family. So overall, going to Disney World as much as I did as a kid is a great memory.
What makes you happy? My friends, my family, Harry Potter, the beach, downtown Charleston, my church family, the Beatles, cats, my violin, shopping, and being blonde.
What were you doing before modelling and do you miss it? I was going to high school with all my friends like a normal teenager. I was involved with the school’s orchestra and student athletic training program. I was also involved with my church’s high school ministry and orchestra. I really do miss it a lot. My friends and family are very supportive and talk to me everyday which makes everything easier.
