I'm Canadian but I grew up in Utah!
Who or What inspired you to begin your healthy lifestyle/ or have you always been healthy?
Honestly, I started my journey to health just to get an old boyfriend back. Then, modeling inspired me to find any way to stay thin and competitive without using the 'usual' modeling methods.

True Food Restaurant, Cafe Gratitude, Malibu Farm, and can't go wrong with Chipotle!
Drink of choice?
Water? Haha I'm from Utah... Drinking isn't my forte.
On a perfect day….
Quinoa oatmeal with lots of coconut milk, maple syrup, and cinnamon apples. Maybe even some granola, the sticky kind.
Fish Tacos...I die for some good fish tacos. Chef Adrienne Clune from Malibu Gourmet does them too well.
Curry! I love a massive bowl of veggie curry. Thai or Indian. With quinoa or brown rice and a huge salad with avocado. Yum.
Sweet Potato Wedges with Avocado and Lime. Orrrrrr I'm always down for a couple of Raw Almond Butter Cups fresh out of the freezer-the crunch. Mm I love.
Shy or outgoing?
I can fake being outgoing because I have to but I always prefer to be at home with 2 or 3 close friends.

Need I say more?
Favorite Singer or Band?
Favorite Song (or songs- cause this is a ridiculous question) ?
Free Falling by John Mayer
Favorite recipe you make?
Because both are things that are constantly bought in stores and are both so much better when they're made at home.
Favorite Food? Oatmeal!
Sweet or Savory?
What do you like to do for exercise?
I love work out videos , insanity, p90x, etc. but there's nothing like a great hike, run, or long yoga class.
Any particular skin care regimen ?
I'm all about skin care products. I love Diana Ralys's skin products-they're all natural and They work.
Night Owl or Early Bird?
Early bird gets the worm.
Any advice you’d like to give someone who thinks it’s hard or expensive to eat healthy?
You're right, it is expensive. But it's no more expensive than if you're eating out all the time. Cook once, eat twice! If you live alone that number will probably be 5 times! Plus, rolled oats are probably one of the cheapest things you can buy at a store and they're incredibly nutritious and delicious.
The lights will never all be green in life.
Who or what motivates you ?
My husband. He always gets me off my bum!
