Tell us about your family:I met my husband on a blind date 14 years ago. We went on to attend law school together and ultimately join the FL Bar. We have two children, Adalyn (8) and Pierce (6). My husband and I founded a not-for-profit called Special Needs Foundation,Inc., in order to fulfil our family's desire to bless our special needs community.
In my spare time I enjoy:Playing games as a family, going to Disney World, fitness, yoga, basketball, golf, cooking, listening to classical music, reading.
People describe me as:Pretty, funny, happy, sweet, passionate, smart, and caring heart.
Special Talents?Gourmet cooking, public speaking.
Famous Moments?Mrs. Orange County (Florida) America 2018
Something unique or quirky about you: When I get to laughing with my family, I cannot stop! We laugh until our stomachs hurt!
What is your personal philosophy: Be relentless in reaching your goals. Through the process there will be times you feel let down, defeated, like success is impossible. But you can't give up. Be relentless, even when you think you have nothing left to give. Trust that deep inside, you have all that you need to succeed.
Why is this important to you? I’ve had many challenges to overcome, including a learning disability, having to adapt to new schools almost every year from kindergarten through senior year, working and paying my way through college, getting into and completing law school and ultimately passing the Florida Bar on the first attempt. Despite my learning disability, I have accomplished all I have by believing in myself and pursuing my dreams relentlessly.
As a woman of empowerment, what is your "Magic"?I can do anything I put my mind to and so can YOU! Sometimes all we need is a little encouragement and someone to point us in the right direction. As Mrs. U.S. of A. Globe, my message to other women will be that THEY have it what it takes to overcome, THEY have what it takes to reach their goals and THEY are an inspiration to others!

What is your favorite family recipe?A simple pasta dish my husband I created years ago. We start with angel hair pasta and add in extra virgin olive oil, organic fresh tomatoes and basil, roasted garlic and then fresh mozzarella melted throughout. Simple and savory!
What is your guilty pleasure?Fried Okra.
What household chore to you actually enjoy?Cooking and baking. Our kitchen is the heart of our home!
Favorite Family Ritual: Visiting several farms in our area and spending time with the animals. We go to the farms for various holiday events and throughout the summer when the children are out of school. One day I hope to have a farm with therapy horses where children with special needs can enjoy and ride the horses.
If there were an extra hour today I would:Play another game or make pottery with my family.
In my beauty bag you would find:Red lip gloss, mascara and a note that reads: Proceed as if success is inevitable.
I just learned:Something about myself...that I’m good at motivational talks with my children, friends and family. I thrive on helping others feel confident and empowered. I love researching and problem solving and engaging in motivational talks when my children, friends, and family need it most. They seem to appreciate it as well.
I stay fit by:Eating fruits, veggies and lean meat. As a busy woman, I find at-home Beach Body fitness programs especially effective. My favorites are Insanity and 80 Day Obsession. I also enjoy walking/running with my family in the evenings - it's our favorite sundown activity during our hot Florida summers.
How did I ever live without my:Car. I love traveling and experiencing all that Central Florida has to offer, from theme parks to beaches, amazing restaurants to natural springs. I’ve lived in Central Florida my whole life and still find new things to do quite frequently. My family and I are always piling into the car for another adventure and I’m super thankful for it.
