me out!

Describe what you do:

I am a Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant ensuring the safety and comfort of passengers traveling by air, but basically I am a therapist, tour guide and nurse.

3 words to describe you:

Sassy, honest and genuine.

Favorite hobbies:

Hiking, walking/playing with my dogs and home decorating.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?

I am most proud of my family and trying to be a good daughter! We are all very close!

What famous person reminds you of yourself?

Catherine Zeta Jones..

What famous person reminds you of your teammate?

A much more handsome John Davidson — those dimples!

What scares you most about traveling?

Getting sick in a foreign country.

What excites you most about traveling?

Seeing other cultures and appreciating all of our many differences culturally! I get so excited to see new places I've never been.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together:

Our biggest communication problems are probably because I speak over him a lot, and get angry or excited very easily. My temper flares quickly and I get defensive.

Pet peeve about your teammate: I try not to harbor pet peeves. I am upfront and like to nip it in the bud. I am pretty black and white, not a whole lot of gray area.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why?

Australia!! It's a beautifully diverse country. Plus, they speak and understand English. Every Aussie I've ever met has been wonderful!

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other than winning one million bucks)?

Proving to ourselves that we are great partners and can work and survive together under pressure! This would be a great accomplishment together!

How could the Race change the current state of your relationship?

I truly don't think it will change our relationship unless it's for the better. We are true to each other and have faith and confidence and trust in one another!
