Tell us about the moment you found out you would be featured in the magazine. What was your initial reaction? Excited! I’ve always been a little bit of a tomboy and in recent years I’ve been able to lean into my feminine side a little more. FHM was the perfect opportunity to showcase that femininity I’ve been growing into. 

Can you share your favorite shot or spread from the magazine and why it holds special significance for you? All of them. I haven’t been in many magazines so the entire collection of photos is special to me. 

When you’re not working, what helps you decompress and relax? A good sweat at the gym, snuggles with my pup, and baths. Lots of baths. Part mermaid.

What’s the strangest fan encounter you’ve ever had? People have recognized me from social media but I’m really just a normal person, no crazy fan stories over here.

What’s the best “wardrobe malfunction” story that you can now laugh about? Well, I’ve worn my pants inside out way too many times. I used to go to the gym super early in the morning and I guess I went old and got dressed while half asleep some days. I’m something like a zombie until I’ve had caffeine. 

What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? A happy family that includes a supportive partner and some cute kids. And a few pups running around the backyard. Adding in a successful business would be the cherry on top.

What’s the weirdest beauty tip or trick you’ve picked up? Snail mucin. I know, I know, it sounds gross but hear me out. It has antioxidants and growth factors and always leaves your skin super hydrated. Just pretend you’re not smearing snail slime all over your face and you’ll be fine.

If you were stranded on a deserted island with only one accessory, what would it be?  My handbag. Because inside my handbag I would have chapstick, a cell phone with service, and a snack to eat while waiting for the rescue boat to come pick me up. 

What’s your go-to guilty pleasure snack? I’m a salty girl, pass me the bag of potato chips.

What is the absolute worst thing a man can do to completely put you off? To either not be “real” or honest – otherwise, what’s the point? I adore authenticity and honesty.

What advice would you give to aspiring models? It’s okay if you don’t fit into societal “norms” – there is so much beauty in being unique. You are art. Flaunt it. I promise there will always be people who appreciate it. 

Thanks for taking the time to speak to us, do you have any last words to our readers? One of the most simple yet meaningful quotes. “Life is short. Do what makes you happy.
