How did you get into the world of MMA?

Who are your favorite MMA fighters?
-Gotta love UFC fighter GSP…an all around great fighter.
What are the strangest and sweetest comments MMA fans have said to you?
-Strangest thing a fan has said to me: Sign their whitey tighties. As for the sweetest thing, all the fans I have are amazing and I have a ton of support. MMA fans are so much fun, but I love it when kids want to take pictures or have me sign their shirt. It’s cute.
What is something most people don't know about you?
-I’m actually pretty good at archery. I’ve been involved in it since I was 7 and I like to shoot when I get the time.
Are you single?
What do you look for in a guy?
-He has to be able to make me laugh!
What are your turn-ons?
-Confidence and a good smile.
What are your turnoffs?
-Arrogance and smokers.
What would you say is your best feature?
-I'm told my eyes are, but I still think my butt is :)
What are your future plans or dreams?
-I want to keep modeling for a while and see where it takes me. So far, I’ve landed some amazing gigs for companies such as Puma, the Hemi Girl 2012 Calendar (shot in the Dominican Republic) and now more recently, World Championship Fighting. Eventually, I want to be a nurse one day and I am currently in school for it. I don’t want to settle down until I’ve been to the places I want to go and have had my fun.
