Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

I’m a total Tom boy at heart. I love to get dirty and throw the football around (I can throw a pretty decent spiral😉). I love to ride and shoot at the firing range, but my love and passion for horses takes over all. The Akhal-Teke breed is an important symbol to my culture and is why I’m most passionate about horses. Oh, and did I mention I can recite the alphabet backwards?

If you were voted our cover girl, what would you do with $10,000?

I would donate ALL $10,000 to the fire victims of my hometown in Santa Cruz who lost their homes during the CZU fires that started August 16th and burned over 86,509 acres. It’s recorded as one of the largest fires in California state history, devastating and displacing thousands in the Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties, and leaving many wild animals homeless. It’s my goal to help, donate, and volunteer in anyway I can.
