to describe you: 
Cute, funny and brave.  

Favorite hobbies: Fishing, golfing and Thunder Basketball.  

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? The birth of my daughter. A close second is taking 3rd in state in wrestling with a torn ACL.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Mark Wahlberg — tough and gritty but also hilarious.  

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Vince Vaughan — he is a fast-talking ladies' man but has a big heart.  

What scares you most about traveling? I love traveling for the most part. I'm not a big fan of the ocean. Just something about not knowing what's out there makes me nervous.  

What excites you most about traveling? Seeing new cultures, sites and learning about different ways of life.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Tim and I are both very headstrong and sometimes argue about the simplest things to prove the other wrong. To win we will have to put that aside at times and trust each other.  

Pet peeve about your teammate: His dirty car. When we go to lunch we never take his car because I can't fit in the passenger seat with all the junk.  

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I have always wanted to see Rome with all the history and culture it has to offer.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the world and make new friends.
