A:I'm originally from Ohio! I moved to LA to venture more into modeling about three and a half years ago. It's a completely different world than OH, but I love it! I'll always have my Midwestern heart with me wherever I go.
Q:How did you start modeling?
A:I started modeling when I was 16 years old in Ohio and also with an agency in Chicago. I also have my cosmetology license so, while working full time in a salon in the Midwest, I wasn't able to fully give my time or completely give it my all until I moved to LA at 22. Modeling has been my full time job for 3 years now. I'm very grateful.
Q:Where have you been featured?
A:Within the past year I've been featured in a couple bridal magazines. One was a cover, FHM Netherlands Magazine, Glacier Magazine, VIGORE Magazine, Satellite Magazine, Blisss Magazine, a few online website catalogs, & my favorite, Playboy! Playboy really helped me become the confident person I am now. I'm really proud of where I've come!
Q:Any funny photo shoot stories?
A:Oh gosh. There always seems to be something! I guess the funniest experience I've had so far was going to a Halloween catalog shoot last year and obviously in my head I was thinking I was going to be wearing a sexy cat woman or French maid costume. I get there, go through hair and makeup, and saw my rack of costumes lined up. Pikachu, Mario & Luigi, Strawberry Shortcake… like- WHAT! It was hilarious. Full on young teenager vibe.
Q: Lol… How do you remain fit for your photo shoots?
A:I try to stay active anyways, but when I have a shoot coming up I seem to naturally push myself a little harder with my workouts. I'm big on cardio. I love running, hiking and doing yoga. I eat pretty clean everyday and also try to stay away from gluten and a lot of carbs. I probably workout about 4-5 days a week for an hour or so. Nothing too crazy!
Q:What's next for you and your career?
A:I would like to see where it goes from here. What else I can add to my resume. Every job is exciting to me, it never gets old. I try not to imagine or predict the future. I take every day at a time and I am always thankful for what it brings. I'm not going to be done modeling for a while. Sometimes I feel like I'm just getting started!
Q:Who do you credit as being your greatest inspiration?
A:My biggest inspiration in general life is of course my mom! She's the strongest, most generous, funniest person I've ever met! She has shown me and taught me more than I can say. She is my most favorite person in the entire world! Career wise, Marilyn Monroe has always been my inspiration for modeling, plus her confidence in her body, her amazing personality and words of wisdom. Marilyn was my extra push, once I broke out into this industry, to be as comfortable in front of the camera as off. I'll always idolize her.
Q:Can you give us all of your social media handles?
