Three words to describe me: Compassionate, Driven, Honest

My biggest fear: I hate insects and am terrified of spiders (and anything with more legs than I am able to clearly count without getting too close).

My hobbies: Anything and everything that keeps me active and moving.  I love to rock climb, go on walks, travel to new places, and to go sky diving. 

My dream job: I love working with people and love marketing, so anything that would allow me to do both of those things would be a dream job for me. 

My best beauty secret: ChapStick brand moisture chapstick; I don’t know why but when I put it on before bed at night I wake up in the morning and my whole face feels more refreshed. 

Fans would be surprised to know: I was in a diaper commercial as a baby.

On the top of my bucket list is: To travel the world.  I want to see everything and go everywhere.

Words I live by: “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m Possible” – Audrey Hepburn.  I have this framed in my bathroom and like to look at this quote every morning. 

My greatest achievement: Winning the Lifestyle and Fitness award at the Miss Minnesota (America) Pageant. 

My heroes: My parents.  They are both so amazing and make one incredible team.  I have grown to really appreciate all they have done for me and looking back now as an adult I am able to see all of the sacrifices they made for me.  They are both genuinely kind people who care about everyone.  I know I’m biased but I really do have the best parents in the world.
