At 16 years old I started my career modeling in my first campaign with Kate Spade in Oklahoma. After competing in Miss USA 2002 I relocated to Los Angeles. I went to work, getting my portfolio together, going to any event I was invited too and audtitioned for everything. Luckily for me I met my agent right away. I have always had great luck in being the right place at the right time. My first feature film found me on the set of Starsky & Hutch however after the film, modeling became my life. I have been featured in a number of magazines, catalogs and even traveled to some of the most breathtaking places in the world for campaigns. I returned back to LA with a few more feature films lined up and an audition for a hit TV show. One of my most cherished jobs was being an Oscar presenter in the 78th Academy Awards ceremony. By 2004 I was working full time as a model/case #16 on Deal or No Deal. I was on the show until I became pregnant with my son. I took a step back from the limelight to devote time to my family life. I've worked hard to make my dreams my reality and I continue to do so today.
