Were you excited to shoot for FHM? Yes! But also nervous! I definitely had to push outside my comfort zone but had so much fun with the shoot.

Tell us something surprising about you? I love sports! College basketball gives me life! I’m a die-hard UK fan. To a lot of people I come off as a girly girl, but I’m actually a total tomboy. 

Describe yourself in one sentence. I am driven, stubborn to a fault, and the funniest person I know…

What are some of your hobbies? I love working out, specifically weight training. Traveling, playing basketball, reading, and I just started a podcast called EmPowered Radio. 

What is your biggest turn-on? A sense of humor! I love to laugh. 

What turns you off the most? Arrogance. There’s a big difference in being confident, which I find attractive, versus being arrogant which is a huge turnoff.

Describe to us your perfect date. I love live music, so definitely a concert followed by pizza and beer. I like simple things, and places where I can be myself. 

What would you consider to be your biggest challenge as a model so far? People only seeing me now and not seeing where I started. They think what I’ve done physically isn’t possible for them. That it’s somehow easier for me, or I’m naturally thin… The truth is, I’m 37 years old. I’ve experienced childbirth. I’ve experienced being overweight. It runs in my family. This is a lifestyle I’ve chosen, but I still have to work for it every day. 

Any last words you would like to share with our readers? Just a quote that I love… “Your life is your story. Write well. Edit often.” — Susan Statham.
