Quote: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” - Mark Twain

Place I’ve traveled and why: My favorite place to travel to was the top of a mountain in San Clemente. It was the highest I had ever hiked before so I was more than exhausted. Once I made it to the top, there were mountains to the left and the ocean to the right! It was a beautiful site and I enjoyed being able to just sit and clear my head.

Charity and why: My favorite charity would be Love Your Melon! I love their cause and everything they stand for. I also love how creative they are with the concept and that their gear is super trendy.

My dream job: My dream job is to be a movie critic! I love watching movies, and I think it would be cool to watch movies before anyone else has seen them.

On the top of my bucket list is: At the top of my bucket list is to swim with dolphins. I’ve always been obsessed with the little mermaid and dreamt of having a life filled with sea adventure!

My hero: My hero is Michelle Obama. I think she’s an excellent role model for all women and men around the world. She leads with such class and has an unbelievably contagious presence about her.

Name an inspiring/influential woman in your life: An inspirational woman or a woman who I am inspired by is my friend Lauren because of everything she has endured with her daughter Jade. Jade is 18 months old and was diagnosed with Fanconi Anemia. Jade recently underwent a bone marrow transplant and now everyday her little body is fighting to stay strong! Despite it all, Lauren continues to be a rock, she’s so positive while she keeps her faith and prays for better days.

How do you define empowered? When I think empowered, I think of someone who has a great deal of influence. I also think strong, courageous, and dances to the beat of their own drum.

Where do you see yourself in five years? In five years, I see myself moving through higher tiers of my career, owning a home, and continuing to give back to the community.

Where are you in your family line up? I have two older brothers, one half and the other adopted. I’m 4 minutes older than my twin sister (that’s right I have a twin)! Lastly, I have a younger brother and sister - so one BIG family.

What was your favorite subject in school? My favorite subject in school was Logic. I was great at it in college and was super obsessed with solving logical equations.

Do you have any pets? I do not have any pets here, but back home I have a kitten named Yogurt and a Pitbull pup named Delilah.

What is your favorite workout tip? My favorite workout tip is more of a motivational quote. “Your mind will quit a thousand times before your body will.” It really helps me push through those really tough workouts!

My best beauty secret is: My best beauty secret is pamper your skin! I get HydraFacial’s from Expressions MD and I leave feeling completely rejuvenated.

Why did you decide to audition to become an MVC? During my first trip to Minnesota, I attended the last football game of the season for the Minnesota Vikings. As I pulled up to the Metrodome, I saw a flood of anxious Vikings fans waiting for the game to start (I had never seen so much purple in my life)! I had the pleasure of sitting on the field and throughout the whole game I was amazed by the cheerleaders -MVC Rhea in particular. They looked like they were having so much fun and I loved their interactions with the excited fans, which drove me to audition to be an MVC. 

What is your favorite memory as an MVC? My favorite memory would have to be touring U.S. Bank stadium for the first time - it was quite surreal. I was with MVC Raquel, and I remember we hugged and celebrated as our boots hit the turf for the first time. I could not believe our hard work had paid off!

Most valued lesson learned as an MVC: My most valued lesson as an MVC is, attitude is everything! I want to be the person that people enjoy being around and I want to be the person that is able to overcome any situation thrown my way.
