1) Where are you from?
I am originally from Solon, Ohio which is a Suburb of Cleveland, Ohio.
2) What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
I went to school for Musical Theatre. I did that professionally all over the country for a little while and then transitioned into Fit Modeling, Modeling, and Commercial work but I still love singing. It has always been my first passion. I also can’t get enough of a good Latin fusion dance class! I absolutely love traveling and discovering new places and I’m a big animal lover. If I could rescue all the shelter dogs at the shelter, I would but for now I have one pup named Joey and he is a total love bug!
3) Favorite Fit clients from the biz?
My absolute favorite fit client would have to be Target and Hackwith Design House. I have been Target’s size 18 Fit model for over 4 years now and have had the opportunity to work with so many different teams, technical designers, and designers. I have learned so much from working with so many different people there. Hackwith Design House is an ethically sourced clothing brand. They are a small company and I love that they put there heart and soul into everything they produce. The team is all about inclusion and I love it!
4) Dream/goals anything else of interest( any fit dream clients?)
I just moved to the East coast from the Minneapolis area and had a pretty steady client list there for fit, print, live tv, and commercial work. However, I wanted to move to the East coast to be closer to my amazing family. My dream would be to build a similar client base on the East coast. I would love to work with clients for fit and print such as Calvin Klein, Eloquii, Gap, Torrid, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Lane Bryant, Ann Taylor loft and so many more. I would also love to have a family one day and have my own animal rescue.
5) Fit Career highlights?
Some of my favorite highlights would be when Target launched Universal Thread. I got to be a big part of that launching process. I was in there for weeks fitting. It was really cool to see and be apart of.
I also got to be the first Plus Size Fit model for two different company’s: Hackwith Design and Ross Sportswear. Both of these company’s had never carried Plus clothing at the time so they were starting from scratch. That was an amazing process and really fun to see!
6) How did you get into fit modeling?
Over four years ago when I started modeling in Minneapolis, which surprisingly has a really good market. My agency started sending me on Fit castings. I started booking regular clients and absolutely loved it!
