She wins you over with her gorgeouos blue eyes and perfect pink toned lips, this American born newcomer has already been seen in W Magazine and Vanity Fair, an impressive achievement due to her very recent debut to the modeling scene.

Originally from Detroit, Michigan her life made a quick transformation from working in the GMC assembly line business to appear in high class photo shoots after her decision to attend a modeling opening call in Chicago. A cleaver choice which has paved her way through the fashion industry, a platform that we are sure will take her to great heights.


Q: How would you describe yourself?

I think I’m pretty laid back and easy going, maybe a bit of quirky too.


Q: Tell us something that very few people know about you

I’m an open book, I don’t find myself keeping too many secrets.


Q: Best modeling experience so far

I’ve enjoyed every experience modeling I’ve had so far, so don’t think I could choose just one. 


By Steven Pan for W Magazine


Q: Who or what influences you?

My husband and my health are the biggest influences in my life. Then there’s always my friends, music, and my environment. 


Q: What’s your signature look?

My style is constantly evolving.


Q: Your favorite fashion designer

I don’t think I could choose just one! I especially loved the designs from Maison Martin Margiela,Christopher Kane, Louis Vuitton, Pucci, Mara Hoffman and Kaufmanfranco.

Q: You are obsessed with

Yoga, nutrition, and Eastern medicine.


Q: People you would love to work with

 Inez & Vinoodh.


Q: Which models do you look up to?

I’ve idolized Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio since I was young. Lily Aldridge is a new favorite, especially since she’s American.



Q:  Do you prefer working on shoots or at shows? 

I love both. I do like shoots just a bit more since it’s an all day (or night) production and you actually get to know everyone that you’re working much better.


Q: Best and worst parts of being a model?

The best is the amazingly creative and dedicated people that I’ve been able to meet and work with. Not to mention, the incredible locations, clothing and accessories. I love that every day is different, most of all.

The worst is that the pinching, hair-pulling, skin reactions, too small or too big shoes and the long hours, which are sometimes unpaid, are all part of the job description as well. 


Q: What is your dream modeling job?

The Victoria Secret fashion show…Hey, if you’re gonna dream, dream big, eh? 


Q: 3 things you can’t live without

Water, air and food.
