A lot of my friends would tell me that I should be a model.  I had never considered it before.  My ex boyfriend also said I should model so I went to a casting with a friend who had invited me.  I signed that same day!

Most memorable modeling experience?  

Wow!  There are a lot of amazing and memorable experiences!  I love nature and shooting in nature no mater how hard the conditions are.  I still remember the 1st time I flew to Los Angeles for work.  Even though it was just for 2 days I loved everything about it!
