HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR COFFEE?

Iced caramel macchiato with an extra shot of espresso.

BIKE, WALK, TRAIN, OR DRIVE?

It depends on how lazy I'm feeling that day.

WHAT’S YOU IDEAL ROAD TRIP?

Our ideal road trip destination is Durham, North Carolina. Only 12 hours separate us from a city we fondly call home. Also, a 12-hour trip justifies at least two stops at Cracker Barrel and shameless road snacks (i.e, Corn Nuts and beef jerky, just in case you were wondering).

WHAT DRIVES YOU?

I want to further my career in modeling and be a positive role model for young women. When I was growing up, stick thin was the only body type you saw in the media. Now more body types are being accepted, and I want to be a part of this body positive movement!

WHY CHICAGO?

It's where my career has brought me. It's a great city!

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT…

Bose mini speakers and footie pajamas.

DO YOU HAVE A FOUR-LEGGED ROOMMATE? TELL US ABOUT HIM/HER

I have a 14-year-old weenie dog named Disney. I got her when I was six!

DEFINE YOUR STYLE?

Tight, black, and athletic. You won't catch me in anything but yoga pants. (Unless I'm going to/from work)

HASHTAG YOURSELF.

I JAM OUT TO…

My music tastes seem to change based on where I live. I grew up in Iowa with heavy metal (slipknot) when I lived in St. Louis it was throwback hip hop (nelly) & my goal is to move to Texas, so, for now, it's red dirt country (Whiskey Myers).

WHAT WOULD YOUR PUNK BAND NAME BE?

Mali-AHH and the punks.

IF I AM NOT AT HOME, YOU CAN FIND ME HERE.

Traveling for work or at the gym.

RANDOM FACT?

I broke my neck last year when I rolled my jeep.

WHAT’S YOUR LATEST BINGE-WATCH?

I've finished Breaking Bad, Family Guy, Orange is the New Black and American Dad.

COOK US YOUR FAVORITE MEAL.

Four cheese brick oven pizza!!
