What is your favorite movie of all time?

Jurassic Park, I could watch the original film over and over. So. Good.

What is one of your favorite hobbies?

I LOVE to cook, I could spend a whole day in the kitchen. It’s edible art and I love creating dishes that bring family and friends together around a table. *no cellphones allowed!*

Tell us one weird thing about yourself

I am obsessed with zombies and am always thinking of apocalyptic survival strategies.

What is your biggest triumph?

I struggled with my body for a long time, when I first moved to LA I was constantly told to lose weight if I ever wanted to have a career in the industry and it put me in a very negative space. Through modeling I have grown to shed those insecurities, stop comparing myself to other women and appreciate my body for all that it does. When I was younger I never saw anything other then size 0 women in the media, I am so proud to be modeling at a size 14 and representing a body type that hasn’t had much time in the spot light!

What’s your favorite holiday?

Halloween! Who doesn’t love candy, craving pumpkins and watching horror films?

What do you most dream about eating again?

Lou Malnatis deep dish pizza, it’s a Chicago classic.

What made you want to act?

Early on I realized making people laugh was one of the best feelings in the world, so I started taking classes at local comedy theaters and eventually ended up at a performing arts high school, The Chicago Academy for the Arts and then moved to LA to attend The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Both schools focused on teaching all aspects of the craft and that training helped me develop a deeper respect for Theater, TV & Film.

What is your most played song right now?

"Right Down The Line" by Gerry Rafferty

What’s your favorite part about being on set?

The Catering. Just kidding, it’s getting to work with so many creative individuals. Everyone brings their skills to the table: Photographer, Stylists, Hair and Makeup, etc and together we get to create. Each set has it’s own rhythm and it’s exciting getting to be a part of a new project each day!

Where are you wanting to escape to?

I would love to take a month and travel through Italy just learning to cook and soaking up all of the culture!

When did you first get into Fashion?

I originally moved to LA to pursue Acting, along the way a friend recommended I look into Plus Modeling and I found a whole new world to explore.

Where did you grow up?

Born and raised in Chicago, go White Sox!
