Occupation: model
Location: Los Angeles

Can you share a bit about yourself?
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA! I am a full-time model and I am also an online student getting my Bachelor’s degree!

How did you start your modeling career?
I did some modeling when I was little, but didn’t realize it was something I really wanted to pursue until I was in high school. I was a cheerleader, and I got scouted at a football game! A few days later, I met with the agents, signed, and I’ve been with them ever since!

Most rewarding shoot, project or campaign
Oh this is a tough one! Different shoots have been rewarding in so many ways, but I would have to say the most rewarding shoot was for Hollister. I spent three years shooting almost every campaign for them. It opened so many doors for me –– I traveled around the world, and I met people who have become lifelong friends. To me, that is more rewarding than any dollar amount!

Can you briefly talk about a social issue or initiative important to you?
While there are a number of social issues that have had an extreme impact on me, one that I have recently been affected by is the amount of corruption in our justice system.

I have been watching many documentaries and series about wrongful convictions, and the opposite with criminals –– who deserve to be but have not been convicted. It’s wrong on so many levels, and it is something that needs to continue to be addressed.

Can you share a personal goal of your’s?
A personal goal of mine is to buy a home by next year!

Quick-fire Q's:

If you could spend the day with anyone, who would it be?
Sebastian Maniscalco. I'm obsessed with his comedy –– I just think that would be so much fun.

What’s the latest podcast, artist or album you listened to?
"So Money," with Farnoosh Torabi: it's such a good listen for women who are, or who want to be, financially independent!

Favorite workout?
Pilates! Gotta tone the booty baby!!!

Desert or beach?
Beach all day every day. The ocean is my happy place.
