How many places have you lived and where?
I’ve lived in three places. I am originally from California and grew up there. I moved to Arizona when I went to college at ASU and lived there for four years. I moved to Texas when I auditioned for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and have been here ever since! Texas is home now; I think I’ve always been a Southern girl at heart.
What story does your family always tell about you?
I was born on St. Patrick’s Day, so every year my mother tells me the same story. She says on the morning I was born, she looked out the window, saw a rainbow, and knew I would be born that day. She was also doing a Jane Fonda workout when she went into labor and almost named me Jane. Maybe that’s why I’m obsessed with fitness!
The best part of waking up is?
Whatever happened the day before doesn’t matter. It’s a new day and it’s what you make of it.
What’s your most memorable vacation?
It wasn’t a vacation, but I went to Peru on a medical mission last August. I went with a group of 15 people, all in the medical field, to a tiny village called Ayacucho. We did cases ranging from cleft palates, cleft lips, burns, tumors, and general surgery cases. it was the most amazing experience and it changed my life.
What do you miss about being a kid?
I miss not having a care in the world. Life is just so simple and trouble-free when you’re a kid and I think we take that for granted.
What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
I’ve always been a talker. I went to a private school that was very strict and I would end up in trouble with a nun at least once a week for talking. Come to think of it, I got in trouble for talking in ballet class too.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I would love to learn how to play the guitar and sing. I’d be a country singer.
If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
When I was little, I used to love that show “Out of This World” with the girl who had the dad that lived in outer space and she talked to him through a cube. Anyway, she was able to freeze time…I always thought that would be SO cool. You would be able to get so much stuff done and never be pressed for time!
What’s your favorite way to break a sweat?
I love any BEYOND workout of course. And I love to dance! I will dance anywhere, any time and any place.
What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
I love to do anything on the water when I’m outside. I was on the wakeboarding team in college, so I always think that’s a fun time!
Or I’ll go to the gun range…
What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
I absolutely hate cleaning. I swear it gives me anxiety! I can’t just focus on cleaning one thing at a time…I end up cleaning something half way and then going onto the next thing, so nothing gets completely done.
What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
I have the worst sweet tooth ever! I absolutely love frozen yogurt and Twizzlers. It’s almost sick how much frozen yogurt I can eat. Sometimes I just want to eat it for every meal and skip actual food. Twizzlers are the best when I go to see a movie, but I usually end up eating all of them before the movie starts…
What’s your favorite way to de-stress?
My favorite way to de-stress is to break a sweat! I love to run outside. It’s mental therapy for me. I can let my mind go…I think, I pray or I just zone out.
What’s your favorite time of day?
I absolutely love sunset! I think it is the most peaceful, beautiful time of the day. It’s beautiful no matter where you are. I have a million pictures of them on my phone because I take them wherever I am. My screen saver on my phone is always a sunset. It makes me happy :)
