Yes, The 2016 Sema Show was my 3rd year in a row modeling there. The first year I was an "Optima Battery Flag Girl" and the alst two years I've been with "Black Widow Exhaust". 2016 was a great year fro me modeling for Monster Energy, The Ultimate Fighter, and being featured in the 2017 O'Neal Racing Category.
My favorite hobbies include anything to do with nature. Bike rides, hikes, walking my puppy; anything outdoors. Especially traveling!!
My worst habit is eating carbs.
My favorite thing to eat is sushi.
I truly love all types of music, from classical, oldies, hip-hop, country, and rock & roll.
What is your most prized possession?
My most prized possession is my puppy, Axel.
Do you attend Car Shows?
Yes, about twice a month.
Favorite Part of Shows
My favorite part about car shows is seeing so many people come together to enjoy their passion. (Cars) :)
What is your Must Attend Show?
Sema 2017, of course!!
What do you do when you're not modeling?
When I'm not posing for the camera, I'm either enjoying my time with friends/family or somehow bettering myself with working out or writing.
What do you think of Gauge Magazine?
I absolutely love Gauge Magazine. I'm more than honored to be a part of a magazine that's so active and current in the automotive world.
Four words that describe you?
Determined, Respectful, Dynamic, Amiable
What is your dream ride?
My dream ride is a baby blue Bentley.
What do you look for in a man?
I look for a lot of great qualities when it comes to men. The usual - confidence, humor, intelligence. But overall, I observe your ability to be a genuinely kind person.
What makes your motor rev?
When it comes to men it really makes my motor rev when a guy can work hard with his hands but can also talk to be about his goals and ambition, with a fiery passion in his eyes.
What makes you put on the brakes?
I'll pump the brakes on a guy if he approaches me with attitude that he can get me easily. I like confidence, not cockiness.
What's your perfect date?
My idea of the perfect date is so much more than dinner and drinks. Show me adventure! Take me to eat where I've never been before, show me things I've never seen before. I also really enjoy live music so if we could end the night watching some band play that would be amazing to me. Make it fun. Original and not planned out.
Most romantic thing someone has done for you?
The most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me was taking me away from my hectic city life to a snowy cabin get-away, where I got showered with meaningful gifts, homemade dinner and my favorite wine.
Best advice for others?
The best advice I've ever received was from my father. Growing up he would always say "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". I never knew how important that saying would be to me until I got older.
What are your immediate future plans?
I have so many plans for the future. Career wise, education wise, and just pure happiness overall in life.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years I see myself with a beautiful family (a husband/kids), with a nursing degree and also a business degree, and with a lot of great modeling accomplishments checked off my list. I see a very rewarding future ahead.
