Goals in life

Live, laugh, and love, aspire and achieve my personal goals so my son understand what it’s like to work hard for something you really want, and watch my son live out his own personal dreams

Someone you admire

I admire my best friend because she has such a unique way of being funny, non-judgmental, and a super-mom, yet unbelievably fashionable, driven, and understands what it means to have a loyal friendship.

Favorite Movie

GREASE! I have always wanted to dance with Danny Zuko!! I just love musicals PERIOD!

If you had to describe yourself in five words, what would they be?

Passionate, Encouraging, Funny, Trustworthy, and Ambitious

Favorite Charity & why

I don’t have one favorite. I simply love that charities have a positive focus at heart and so many positive people come together for the greater good without even personally knowing the person or family that will benefit from the charity! It’s just and endless circle of love!

Why did you decide to audition to be a CC?

This platform to be a CC changes lives and impacts people across the world. This program is not only changing me, but the person I love most, my son, and that’s priceless! This keeps me coming back every year!

Favorite CC Appearance to date

Representing Chiefs Kingdom in London and taking a piece of KC across the world

Best Moment as a CC to date

Sharing this experience with my family and being a part of something bigger than me, bigger than all of us, and being a part of history in the making.

Advice to anyone that wants to audition in the future to be a CC

JUST DO IT! You may or may not make the team, but you will forever be changed by the journey itself! You may think to yourself (a quote I once read): What if I fall?... Oh but my darling, what if you fly?
