Model Profile


What was it like being photographed in Florida this year for the 2013 Women of KU Swimsuit Calendar?
The Florida experience was amazing! It was my first time visiting the state and the weather and ocean couldn’t have been more perfect. And to top of that, I got to spend it with 12 other awesome girls! Oh and the alligators were freaking cool!

What is your favorite part of being in the calendar?
My favorite part about being in the calendar was picking out my swimsuit! That is probably my favorite thing to purchase so it was really fun, finding the perfect suit for the calendar.

Why did you select KU for your university?
I chose KU because growing up I was always a Jayhawk fan. Also, I grew up in a really small town, so I wanted to experience what it was like to go to big school.

What's your favorite KU tradition?
My favorite KU tradition is of course, the KU basketball games. Being inside Allen Field House, when the video plays right before the game is so awesome and so intense!

Describe one of your favorite things about KU and/or Lawrence.
My favorite thing about Lawrence, would be the bar scene, aka - Mass Street. People get so crazy and have so much fun, especially on game days….Also, I have never had so many food choices!!

Describe your typical weekend night in Lawrence.
My typical weekend night in Lawrence would be picking out an outfit for probably 3 hours, getting ready with my best friend, Danielle, and then we are off to the bars!

Do you have a favorite sport at KU?
KU basketball! DUH!

What is the dream job you would like to have after graduation?
My dream job after graduation would be a plastic surgeon but lets be honest, that’s way to much school, so hopefully I get a job being a Respiratory Therapist.

Why did you choose to be part of the Women of KU calendar?
I chose to be a part of the calendar because I thought it would be a great experience. I wanted to be a part of the amazing, Women of KU Swimsuit Calendar tradition, as well as, meet new people so I thought it would be perfect.

List 3 or 4 words that describe you best?
The white Nicki Minaj

Why did you choose your major?
I chose Respiratory Care as my major because my baby brother, who was diagnosed with Down Syndrome, had respiratory problems and I felt that it would be great if I knew about his condition first hand.

Are you involved in anything on or off campus you are proud of?
I am very proud of myself that I finally made it to The University of Kansas Medical Center because that is what I have been working towards the past 3 years. Also, I am super duper proud of myself for being a part of the Women of KU Swimsuit Calendar.

What special talents do you have?
I am really good at impersonating Nicki Minaj. I know just about every one of her raps. We are basically the same person (but I'm white).

Name something that most people don't know about you.
I used to barrel race when I was growing up as well as lived on a farm.

What do you look for in a guy? What is sexy?
What I think is sexy in a guy is great teeth and a gorgeous smile! Oh my gosh, a big white smile will just melt my heart.

Tattoos - Turn on, turn off, I'm fine either way?
Tattoos can be a turn on, as long as their body isn’t painted head to toe in them. And black/grey/white tats are much better than color tats on dudes lol.

Would you say you are more country girl or city girl?
I would say I definitely started out as a small town, country girl but in the last couple of years I have started to be more of a city girl since I have been living away from home. But I will always be a country girl at heart.

Roses or chocolates?
Um both, duh….if you’re going to get me roses, just go ahead and tape a candy bar to it. ;)
