Black and Teal
What is your favorite season, and why? Please let us know what we can find you doing during these months.
My favorite season is Spring because of all the colors and smells. Spring gives me that renewed feeling. You can find me discovering new parks and recreation centers all across Michigan with my family. I've been enjoying getting to know my home state better.
What thing(s) do you do to calm yourself or get you back to being grounded?
I try to find the positive in every situation. I remind myself it's ok to feel what I'm feeling as long as I don't stay there. There is no vacancy for that in my life. I allow myself to feel it and then I move on.
Are you more shy or outgoing?
I can be both depending on the setting and audience.
On your day(s) off what can we find you doing?
Kickboxing and Fitness!!!! It's my passion. It keeps me level headed and mentally strong. When I have the time I am also up north riding my ATV with my family. Because of my busy schedule, I try to spend as much time at home relaxing with my family as well.
Are you a salty or sweet treat lady?
I am definitely a sweet treat lady!!
What is your favorite holiday, and why?
My favorite holiday has always been Halloween. It's the time of year to be anyone else you want to be and dress up. I dress up every year, you are never too old for pure fun.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why?
Italy, I love the history and the architecture that surrounds it.
What are your fears?
Aside from real life everyday fears of losing my loved ones, my biggest fear is living with regret. I don't want to look back on things and regret not doing them or vice versa. I have been making a conscious effort to make better choices in my life and to rid myself of the toxic stuff that holds me back from doing that.
If you could give advice to fellow ladies, what would it be?
Not to wait for the "right time" to do something. Everyday; all the time is the right time. I always say "if not now, when?"
What is your goal(s) in life? Why are those currently your goal(s)?
My goals are to live my life unapologetically and authentically. I have spent too much time trying to be someone else; someone who I was proud of. My ultimate and current life goal is just being happy.
What has been the hardest lesson to learn so far in your life?
The hardest lesson to learn has been realizing not everyone has the same heart as me and accepting that.
How would your family and friends describe you?
I am not sure. I would hope they would say that I was selfless, dependable and kind. I would hope they would think I was someone who they could trust and rely on.
Who in your life do you look up to the most? Why?
I look up to all the strong women I know in my life, past and present. Each one has added something special to my life that has changed it for the better.
What makes you unique?
My loyalty and selflessness , it's a blessing and a curse sometimes. One thing I always say is, you can count on me and you absolutely ALWAYS can.
What do you love about doing boudoir photoshoots?
I love the whole experience. I get to forget about everything for a minute and just enjoy being myself and feeling good about myself. They make me feel that there is more to me than mom and wife. I am still a person who deserves to love herself too.
What made you decide to be a Brand Ambassador for Alter Ego Boudoir?
I love the message that the brand sends about body positivity and being yourself. It's something that I have become passionate about and want to help spread that message to those that may have been struggling like me to feel that.
What are you looking forward to the most from becoming a Brand Ambassador?
I am hoping to inspire women to take chances and risks in life because you never know what can happen and who you can be if you don't.
