Thank you

On behalf of Maxim's Finest and Homes for Wounded Warriors, we would like to thank you for helping us support our injured veterans.

What has been the highlight of your modeling career so far?

Modeling in a charity fashion show in my hometown (Annapolis!) that raised money for children with autism. My cousin is autistic so raising awareness helps him in a big way. Besides that, I'd have to say working as a signed model based in NYC for years has been extremely fulfilling.

Why should you be voted Maxim's Finest?

I represent a type of girl that is more than just her looks. She is intelligent, ambitious, and witty (and maybe a little hungry ?). At 22, I started my first ecommerce fashion start-up, and as an influencer with a demographic of predominantly young girls, I try to emphasis my business accrue as much as I do my modeling accomplishments. I strive to be an example that other girls can relate to and be positively influenced by.

What would you do with $25,000?

I'd donate 15% to charities for Autism. The rest would go to the start-up company I founded.
