How did you become a model?
At age 15, after winning a local pageant. I received a postcard in the mail advertising open calls for an agency in Madison. I decided to go, met my agent, and have been modeling ever since.

Who are your heroes in life?
My heroes are Mother Theresa and Father Todd! My parents. Their never-ending support is insane.

What is your present state of mind?
My present state of mind is anticipation/excitement for the future.

What is your idea of happiness?
My idea of happiness is a delicious meal, probably pizza, with a fresh, a warm chocolate chip oatmeal cookie, and a back-rub. It is the little things that matter most …

How would you like to be perceived by others?
I would like to be perceived as different but in a good way, leaving someone with something to think about.

If you were not a model, what would you be?
If I was not a model, I would be a cop or crime scene analyst.

What advice do you have for other models?
My advice to other models would be to never let this industry destroy your confidence. Just because you were not picked for the job does not make you any less beautiful.
