Biography

I am an Iconic Beauty because I fully understand that what I want will take work, time and major effort, but instead of shying away from these things, I am motivated and willing to go all-in to achieve my ultimate goals. Aligned with the companies standards, I do not compete with other women and feel we are all unique enough to learn and grow from each other. I am not an industry standard model and refuse to let society put me in a box. I feel like this is what Iconic Beauty stands for- giving those who don’t necessarily “fit”, a platform to launch their personal dreams into reality. I want to empower, inspire and support my fellow ladies in order to thrive not only within myself but altogether. I feel there is enough success for all of us in this industry and in life. I am constantly working to be the best version of myself physically, mentally and spiritually. I have a kind, genuine, beautiful spirit that I’m not afraid to share with the world.

Real Life Me

The Real Me

What was your first “I made it” moment? Making the cover of a magazine and receiving my first check for modeling. I’ll never forget sitting in my truck looking down at that check giddily thinking, “I did it, I did it! I have to take a picture of this!” It was the moment I allowed myself to believe I had broken into the world of modeling and might actually have a chance at it. I can still feel that pure, eager excitement swelling from within. I look forward to more moments like that one.
What is your favorite thing about yourself? My thoughtfulness. There is a part of me that is truly selfless and I work to nurture that part.
What are you really good at? Human interaction. I feel like I could be plopped anywhere and be able to relate and positively interact with people without feeling out of place.
What is your proudest accomplishment? I would say moving to Europe and Hawaii. I was able to trust myself, be sure-footed, adventurous and fearless enough to just up and move into the unknown. My sense of wonder and youthful curiosity led me to meet lifelong friends, see places that others dream of going to, and it allowed me to mature, grow and become the independent woman I am proud to be today.
What is your favorite part of every day? It’s currently a combination of these 3 things: waking up and enjoy a warm beverage (tea, coffee or hot coco) while I make a list of things I would like to accomplish and then at the end of the day crossing those things off the list. My list are always different, although they have some constants. Just being able to set myself up and hold myself accountable for what I want to do is really powerful to me and helps me feel good about myself.
What makes you, you? I am a die-hard positive person, I look to human connection rather than what people can do for me, and I am very aware of my surroundings.
Who/what inspires you? People inspire me. All types of people. People who overcome enormous odds and make positive changes in our world inspire me most.
What keeps you going when you feel like giving up? The fact that if I keep going I might be able to forge a path that others can follow. I also have this burning desire and internal knowledge that I can, which comes from within, and it won’t let me give up on accomplishing what I set out to do for myself.
Most people don’t know this, but…? I hate bananas.
