So, we got you back! This is becoming a regular thing, how we get to keep shooting and featuring you? How was it shooting with Fitness Gurls this past time?
Yesss! How lucky am I?! It was really awesome, although I was very stressed because I had a medical situation that I had to get looked at after the shoot. So while I was not 100% myself mentally and physically, I did the best I could. My friends Jean and Paul were kind enough to lend us their gorgeous home in Vegas to shoot at which made me much more comfortable. Plus shooting with Tay Price is so efficient!
Being in the fitness and glamour scene has given you first-hand experience. what’s something that people usually get the wrong impression about, but isn’t true?
The biggest misconception is that I only date meatheads or fitness guys. That couldn’t be further from the truth personally! Also, although I watch what I eat most of the time, I find it cute whenever anyone asks me if I’m on a special diet they should be aware of. If I’m out being social and having a good time, the last thing I want to eat is chicken breast and salad! Let see, what else… oh! Because a lot of my pictures show me not smiling, it can come off as high maintenance or snobby which I don’t think I am. I will say my resting face doesn’t look very friendly though, but I can’t help it!
Who’s your favorite celebrity/public figure right now?
I absolutely in LOVE with the royal family! Particularly Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton. It’s random, yes but I love how the Queen is so stoic and is still going strong with her public engagements at her age! Kate is an inspiration to me because she holds herself with such class and seems so kind I know there’s no such thing as perfect as I’m sure even the royal family deal with their own struggles, but I love the image they portray.
Do you prefer to train with or without music in the gym? What are some bands you like listening to?
Most of the time I train with music, but I feel like my workouts are quicker if I don’t listen to music. If you don’t know by now, I’m a rock chick so I like Alter Bridge, Shinedown, and the classic bands like Metallica, Slayer, etc. But on the other end of the spectrum, I’m digging Doja Cat and Harry Styles lately.
If you somehow happened upon a literal genie in a bottle (not unlike the coveted The Twilight Zone) who offered you 3 wishes, what would they be?
First and foremost, I would wish for this political unrest in the country to settle the eff down! I absolutely will NOT talk about politics whatsoever. Second, you will all agree, I wish for this damn COVID to go away for multiple reasons we can complain all day about! And third is a selfish one, but it would be landing a dream job like being a host of a show/program or something. Ideally, a travel/adventure show so I can travel the world and see how other people live.
Now that things are opening back up a bit, what would be the first place you’d go? Where would you go for a vacation or a photoshoot if it were up to you?
Somewhere secluded! Being cooped up for so long has given me a little anxiety when I’m in public and in semi-crowded places so I need to slowly introduce myself to being in surroundings with more people. I’d like to go up to the mountains or something with lots of nature and fresh air. When things are completely safe and normal again, I would love to tour all areas of Europe.
