Describe what you do: Part time actor/model in Chicago and a full-time

mom! I also work with our foundation which aids families in crisis who lack access to basic human needs. I support my husband's career by going to a lot of baseball games and events, which is easy to do since I was raised a Cubs fan!

Three words to describe you: Creative, determined and kind.

Favorite hobbies: traveling, Living a healthy life (juicing), acting, painting/drawing (I love the arts!). I love laughing, hugging, watching movies, baseball and having fun!

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Hands down, being a mom! My son is my pride and joy. I also am proud that I can list off all 50 states in 15 seconds, and that I don't eat things with a face. 

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Oh, I don't know. Can I say who I would want to hang out with instead? Ellen DeGeneres. She is a sweet lady and makes people laugh without being hurtful; she has such a positive outlook on life and doesn't judge. I don't really admire a lot of celebs but she just makes me happy.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Jennifer Aniston — everyone wants to be Nicky's friend! She's funny and is a natural beauty. I am so lucky to get to spend this much time with her! 

What scares you most about traveling? Being away from my son and husband is going to be extremely difficult for me. 

What excites you most about traveling? Being in crazy situations! I get bored easily, and I'm obsessed with adventure. I also really, really love interacting with people. It's so fun trying to brighten people's day with laughing, or making someone feel good. Whether that be through a hug, conversation or just being ridiculous, i can't wait to meet people from all over the world and see who is out there! So pumped for this crazy adventure.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together:  I know this might come as a shocker to people, but it's quite possible we might have issues with physical tasks. 

Pet peeve about your teammate: She is a tanorexic and I hate how she smells like oatmeal after she spray tans! 

What country and place would you most like to visit and why?  India or Thailand — Such amazing people and cultures! Also, there is a lot of need there. I want to see firsthand how I can help. 

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Growing in my friendship with my sweet bunny, Nicky, maintaining a positive attitude during the race and walking away having it been one of the best experiences of my life!
