What is the best thing that has ever happened to you? 

I think the best thing that has ever happened to me thus far in life is having the opportunity to move to Phoenix, AZ. It was a big change and push that I needed in my life to step out of my comfort zone and grow into the woman I am today. 

It is crazy how one simple decision can be such a huge turning point in your life. This one move has sparked countless new opportunities, new friendships, and many adventures!

What is your favorite part about being a woman? 

I think my favorite part about being a woman is that we are capable of both. When I say both, I mean that we can get covered in sweat and dirt, we can lift heavy, and we can be very independent. 

We also have a side that is very emotional, sweet, loving, and we can rock a dress and heels like no other! We are multifaceted in every aspect and capable of anything.

Who is your favorite role model?

My favorite role model is Shalane Flannagan. She is an amazing marathon runner, business women, and very invested with her family. All of those attributes I hope to accomplish in my life as I continue to grow.

What is your dream in life?

My dream in life is to overall just be happy. Of course I want to be successful, have a family, a lot of land, be really fit, own my own fitness clothing brand, be a sponsored athlete….the list goes on and on. 

None of that matters though if I am not living life to the fullest and truly being happy.

Are you following your dream?

Yes, I am very happy with where I am in life right now. Of course there are some aspects in my life I need to work on such as my career and owning my own business one day….but I am taking it day by day living it up. 

I am taking up every new opportunity I get, staying positive, motivated, and never giving up. So the answer is yes, I am following my dream.

What’s your favorite clothing brand / store?

My favorite clothing brand would have to be American Eagle for regular clothes and for fitness wear I absolutely love Fabletics!

What is your “happy place”?

My happy place is either in the gym or outside on a run putting in mileage and tuning out to music.

What’s most important to you?

My family and friends are very important to me. I would not be where I am today without the support, love, and encouragement I receive from all of them daily.

What’s the worst line a guy has ever used on you?

There has been plenty of bad pick up lines let me tell you…I think one of the more recent events that have happened involved a pick up line from “How I Met Your Mother”. 

This guy walked up to me in a bar and said “Have you met my friend……” as he pointed to his friend right next to me. Of course it was not really a pick up line but one of the wingman moves and was rather hilarious.

What is your dream car?

OH MAN! I am a pretty simplistic person when it comes to cars, as long as it has good gas mileage and can get me from point A to point B I am pretty happy….but I will play along here! I would love a light blue, sports car type thing, with a sun roof, twinkling lights on the inside, bumping speakers, and a dog bed in the back for my dog.

Have you ever traveled out of your home country?

Yes, well only once! in 2017 when I went to Boston, my family drove up to Canada for two nights. It was my first experience ever outside of the country in Old Montreal and it was such a cool experience! Crossing the border I know is not a big deal, but it just felt different. 

Of course the two days we were there it was extremely cold and rainy so we did not explore much, but I do remember our hotel room got upgraded to a presidential suite! Overall great trip I will always remember!

Are you a tom-boy, girly-girl, or both?

I used to be such a tom-boy growing up and definitely still have that side, but I have devoloped a girly-girl side as I have grown. I love sweats and t-shirts, but I also have been diving into the “fashion” world experimenting with new looks I can try when me and the girls have nights out!

Do you have a favorite Kardashian sister?

People that know me may or may not be surprised, but I am a sucker for reality television and definitely partake in watching The Kardashian clan! 

My favorite out of the bunch would have to be Kendal Jenner. She just seems 100% herself and does not seem to let the fame get to her head. I obviously do not know her, but she seems like she has really worked for what she has in life.

Have you ever gotten plastic surgery? 

No I have not, I do not think I ever will get plastic surgery either. Honestly have not really thought about it because I am happy the way I look and want to encourage others to love their bodies more how they were made.

What do you want to be remembered as?

I want others to remember me as being 100% me and not worrying abut what others think. I want to be remembered as a very friendly, positive. inspiring, and hard working individual who never gave up at the sight of a challenge. 

The people that really know me I feel like would remember me the way I want them to remember me!
