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?
As cliché as it sounds, being photographed at Darby Dan Farms was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I was in awe of the surroundings from the moment I passed through the gate. It was such an honor to actually be part of that beautiful landscape. The atmosphere of the entire day was incredible—all the people involved were so helpful and inviting. I had to keep reminding myself, “This is actually happening!”

What is your favorite part of being in the calendar, so far?
My favorite part would definitely be making new friends with the other models. I am especially excited about making memories at the appearances we will be attending.

Why did you select UK for your university?
UK has always been a school close to my heart. My father is a UK graduate as are many of my family members. The thought of a big school appealed to me as well.

What's your favorite UK tradition?
Well, I’d have to say UK basketball. Especially since my grandfather has always been a diehard fan.

Describe one of your favorite things about UK, and/or Lexington.
My mother grew up in Chevy Chase, and I love those old neighborhoods. I love the Kentucky Theater. I love the horse farms, too.

Describe your typical weekend night in Lexington.
Hang out with my friends. It doesn’t matter what we do just as long as we are doing it together and having fun!

Do you have a favorite sport at UK?
I doubt this will be any surprise, but hands down BASKETBALL!

What is the dream job you would like to have after graduation?
No judgment, no limitations; my dream job would be to write and perform for SNL.

Why did you choose to be part of the Women of UK calendar?
The idea that my picture would be in a prestigious calendar and that a very well-respected photographer was shooting and participating with some of the most gorgeous girls in Kentucky was a pretty good indicator of why I chose to be a part of the calendar! :)

List 3 or 4 words that describe you best?
Outgoing, weird, caring, and funny

Why did you choose your major?
My major will be theater because I want to be a performer.

Are you involved in anything on or off campus you are proud of?
The Women of UK Swimsuit Calendar! :P

What special talents do you have?
Let’s just say that I’m a work in progress but, I’m pretty good at impressions.

Name something that most people don't know about you.
I surprise people with my sense of humor.

What do you look for in a guy? What is sexy?
I look for a guy that isn’t self-centered and who doesn’t want to hang out 24/7. It also helps if the guy is funny and nice. Lips are very sexy to me as well as chest, arms, and back.

Tattoos - Turn on, turn off, I'm fine either way?
They are a turn on, but I’m fine either way.

Would you say you are more country girl or city girl?
City girl with a touch of country due to the fact that I’ve grown up in a small town. Most of my hometown friends would be considered “country girls.”

Roses or chocolates?
Chocolates.

I want to say…
A HUGE thank you to everyone affiliated with the calendar. This is a wonderful experience and I thank everyone who made it happen!!
