Congratulations on being chosen as Playmate of The Year! You must be thrilled?

Absolutely! I was taken completely by surprise when the news came about. I couldn’t believe that not only do I already have the honor of the Playmate title but now I’m officially Playmate of the Year! I mean seriously, how many girls can say that?! I feel so blessed!

Tell us more about your modelling journey to this very exciting moment for you?

I honestly never really imagined myself as a successful model, growing up I took all AP classes since middle school and spent a ton of timekeeping to myself. However after college I just finally decided to follow my heart and pursue the dream I never really shared with anybody. Being a small-town Florida girl without much means, I couldn’t fathom the concept of eventually living in Beverly Hills let along becoming ‘Playmate of the Year’! This all seems so surreal to me and frankly feels like some sort of insane out of body experience!

Looking back, what has been your most memorable moment?

Although I always try to focus my mind on the present moment, one of my best memories would be being a part of the last ever ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ party at the Playboy Mansion. It was the last time a lot of us painted ladies got to see each other at the Mansion so I really enjoyed my time celebrating with old friends and meeting wonderful new ones!

Meeting so many people on your way, who has been the most interesting?

As a retired Beverly Hills socialite, I’d say I’ve met more than my fair share of extraordinary characters! However, none would ever be more interesting than the man that I’m currently engaged to. I’m a VERY lucky girl!

Your career path is exceptional and different as a Self Realization Guru and Sound Healer Practitioner, why this specific path?
