She wrote on her facebook fanpage, “I’m a charity event planner along with my sister/bestfriend, Lindsey at our company, The A-List Events. I’m also a major animal lover… my family has 5 rescue dogs, 6 birds and a 5 foot long iguana! There’s never a dull moment in our house,”
“In my free time, I love volunteering for the Wounded Warrior Project, the Boys and Girls Club and the Humane Society. Growing up, I performed with a youth circus called the Sailor Circus for 5 years! I did everything from tumbling to walking the high wire…but my specialty is the flying trapeze! Not only is it an amazing rush, but it’s also great exercise! I actually have a mini flying trapeze in my family’s backyard!”
“Something you might not know about me at first glance is that I have a very nerdy side! I attended Pine View School for the Academically Gifted for 9 years (the #6 school in the nation, Go Pythons! Haha!). I took extra classes online and was able to graduate at 16. We didn’t have any football, baseball or any sports teams, so our “mathletes” were considered the “popular jocks”,”.
Her famous quote: “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier”. -Mother Teresa.
