Model Profile


What was it like being photographed at Darby Dan Farms, one of the most prestigious horse farms in KY for the very first, Women of UK Swimsuit Calendar?
Darby Dan Horse Farm was absolutely breathtaking, it was the perfect location to shoot the first ever Women of UK Swimsuit Calendar! It was an experience I will never forget!

What is your favorite part of being in the calendar, so far?
I LOVED meeting all of the girls! However, getting my hair and makeup done by a professional team and having my picture taken was a close second! ;)

Why did you select UK for your university?
The University of Kentucky has been my dream school since I was a little girl! I grew up in a family that bleeds blue, so it was a no-brainer for me. Becoming a Wildcat was the best decision I've ever made!

What's your favorite UK tradition?
My favorite UK tradition is Big Blue Madness! UK fans from all over come to celebrate the beginning of basketball season. It truly is one of my favorite nights, I look forward to it all year long!

Describe one of your favorite things about UK, and/or Lexington.
I love the city of Lexington! It's a perfect fit for me, being from a small town I absolutely love the city life.

Describe your typical weekend night in Lexington.
On a typical weekend my friends and myself love to go downtown. Downtown Lexington is always a good time.

Do you have a favorite sport at UK?
I am passionate about UK basketball! I've been attending games since I was a little girl! There truly is no better place to be than Rupp Arena on game day. It doesn't hurt that we are the most winningest team in college basketball ;)

What is the dream job you would like to have after graduation?
I would love to work within television broadcasting!

Why did you choose to be part of the Women of UK calendar?
My brother is the one who told me about the calendar, knowing it would be right up my alley. After talking to him I immediately sent in my application. A couple of weeks later I received an email saying I had been selected! I have been on cloud 9 ever since! :)

List 3 or 4 words that describe you best?
The words that best describe me are: Loyal, Hard Working, Goofy and Dependable.

Why did you choose your major?
I came into UK being undecided in my major. However, after meeting the Communication professors and taking some of the classes, I fell in love. I immediately declared COM as my major and haven't looked back since!

Are you involved in anything on or off campus you are proud of?
I love competing in beauty pageants. It's a passion of mine! I've held several different titles and I've met tons of amazing girls along the way!

What special talents do you have?
One of my talents would have to be gymnastics. Throughout school I cheered for 12 years, so tumbling is a love of mine!

Name something that most people don't know about you.
I currently hold a state pageant title, I am the 2012 Miss Kentucky Festivals!

What do you look for in a guy? What is sexy?
I love a clean cut guy, who isn't afraid of a little hard work!

Tattoos - Turn on, turn off, I'm fine either way?
I prefer no tattoos, although small tattoos that can be hidden are okay. Just don't show my Memaw;)

Would you say you are more country girl or city girl?
Country for sure! I grew up on a farm showing registered Ayrshire dairy cattle, I went to my first cow show when I was just 3 weeks old!

Roses or chocolates?
I would have to say roses, I'm a sucker for flowers! Although roses and chocolates are the perfect combo!
