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?
Being invited to be photographed for the Women of UK Swimsuit Calendar at Darby Dan Horse Farm was simply amazing. The owner and staff were terrific. It is so beautiful there!
What is your favorite part of being in the calendar, so far?
Being around all the other calendar models is a blast. We have formed a family of sorts. I had such a fun time working with photographer, David Gillispie, too. We were laughing during the whole photo shoot - it was just a lot of fun! :)
Why did you select UK for your university?
The University of Kentucky is one of the best schools in the country and there was no other choice for me… Go UK!
What's your favorite UK tradition?
It would have to be Big Blue Madness. The fans here are so wild and crazy and I fit in perfect with them! lol
Describe one of your favorite things about UK, and/or Lexington.
I really like the fact that there is always something to do here. You can never be bored in Lexington. I was born and raised in Kentucky so the atmosphere is home to me.
Describe your typical weekend night in Lexington.
I work a lot with my job and pageants but when I step out, I like to take in a movie or dinner with my girlfriends.
Do you have a favorite sport at UK?
It has definitely got to be UK basketball!
What is the dream job you would like to have after graduation?
I want to be the host of my own hunting and gaming show or host a sports show.
Why did you choose to be part of the Women of UK calendar?
The Women of UK Swimsuit Calendar is a perfect fit for my modeling and pageant worlds. It is a well-respected, beautiful and all-around polished collegiate swimsuit calendar. I've seen the others out there… this one is absolutely the best!
List 3 or 4 words that describe you best?
Fun, Outdoorsy, Honest and Mischievous ;)
Why did you choose your major?
I love writing and the journalism school was the perfect fit for me.
Are you involved in anything on or off campus you are proud of?
I'm involved in several pageants that I am very proud of… I was 2009 Miss Kentucky Teen USA and held titles for a few others. The Women of UK Swimsuit Calendar is in the same field. I love it! I am also involved in several charities. I feel giving back to the community is a very important thing for us to do.
What special talents do you have?
I absolutely love to hunt and fish! I'm a good outdoors person and hunting is just so much fun - and I'm pretty good at it! I have played the piano for over 15 years now. I won the Talent Award at Miss Kentucky this year, playing the piano!
Name something that most people don't know about you.
Like I mentioned above, I play a mean piano and I'm great at water skiing.
What do you look for in a guy? What is sexy?
Nice teeth is a must! A guy must have a bright smile and take of it. Well, of course, he has to like the outdoors. Don't get me wrong, for a night on the town, I need my man to be able to dress up and do it up right. But, I'd have to say, a guy that is honest with himself, respectful and knows how to treat a girl right is what makes me smile the most! ;)
Tattoos - Turn on, turn off, I'm fine either way?
I'm ok with a few tattoos. They are a natural expression of a person's self as long as they have a personal meaning behind them.
Would you say you are more country girl or city girl?
Hmm, let me think about that one… country girl! Ha
Roses or chocolates?
Chocolate without a doubt!
