Hello! I began modeling in 2015 after finally deciding to give myself a shot in the industry.  Like so many, I struggled with shyness, confidence and body image issues throughout and beyond school (and still), and while I knew modeling was an interest, I never considered it a real opportunity for me.  Now I’m excited to join the exploding plus size fashion industry and body positive movement, and I hope to inspire others to prove themselves wrong, put themselves out there, and embrace their unique beauty, flaws and all. 

I am a Southern California native, who grew up in Pasadena and then studied Music Performance at USC Thornton School of Music.  I've worked in business for a number of years and in 2015 I received my MBA from the University of Redlands and intend to use that to pursue a career that blends business and creativity.  Photography is another interest of mine and I can be available for shoots in the evenings or weekends.
