1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
It was our last night in Paris in 2017, my husband had made reservations at a very nice restaurant, he told me to get all dressed up for our date and I could tell he was oddly nervous. Little did I know he was planning to propose at dinner, but the dinner went HORRIBLY wrong. We laugh about it now, how unideal the circumstances ended up being for a proposal at dinner. But the dinner gone wrong ended up being a blessing in disguise. Leaving dinner, we walked around the streets of Paris over to the Eiffel Tower, and he got down on one knee as the Eiffel Tower began to sparkle and asked me to be his wife. We still laugh today about how “unromantic” the streets of Paris are with rats running around everywhere. Rats and all it was the perfect proposal that didn’t go “as planned”.
2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
My juicer is definitely the #1 important thing in my kitchen. I have been making my own fresh pressed green juice for 9 years! My health is my top priority and making my own green juice is one of my favorite healthy habits to help me be the be the best me. My waffle maker is another staple in my kitchen. Making protein waffles on the weekend is an activity my husband and I consistently do together. The waffles are delicious but the quality time with my husband is even better.
3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
A lot of people believe the stereotype we learn about in Hollywood that “beautiful women are rude.” A common comment I’ve received, especially during my modeling career was, “Wow you’re so nice! I thought you were going to be rude!”
I can have a very serious demeanor, I am very focused and driven towards my goals. But once you talk to me you will quickly learn I am an extremely kind and loving person who just happens to default to a serious face.
4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
I demonstrate leadership skills daily. I am a leader of a multimillion-dollar sales organization and I coach and lead people in business daily. Offering guidance and strategies of how to grow in their business, mindset, belief, and every area of life. I love helping people step into their potential and unlock the next best version of themselves. I recently just hosted a huge 4-hour training for my organization, this was an excellent demonstration of my leadership skills and ability to help move people forward towards their goals.
5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
I do my best to do things scared all the time. “Face your fears” and “feel the fear and do it anyway” are two of my favorite quotes that I remind myself of often. I belief fear is a great guide of where you are supposed to go! Everything you want is on the other side of fear. I grow the most when I lean into doing the things that terrify me.
