What I love about Houston: The people, the food, the Rodeo, the shopping, and  the fact that I can wear flip flops almost all year long.

Favorite four-letter word: FATE

Favorite people to interview: Steven Tyler was AWESOME, but I got totally startstruck with Justin Timberlake.

What I’m known for: Always having a smile on my face 🙂

Signature  lines: “I’m a lefty so I’m always in the RIGHT state of mind!” And “HAVE A WODERFUL DAY!”

Favorite music experiences: No lie, I sang onstage with the Backstreet Boys at their concert in 2000. In a pink cowboy hat. Pretty sure they turned my mic off, but it was AWESOME.

Other talents: Never played an instrument, but I can WHISTLE like a pro.

Family: I’m the oldest of 4 girls in my fam. I know, my poor dad!

More: The little things make me the happiest. I take lots of pictures. I treat my dog Bella like she’s a real person. I could eat sushi for every meal. Headphones and music are a MUST when I run.  My hair is really curly, but I straighten it almost every day. Sometimes people tell me I look like Demi Moore (and I am TOTALLY ok with that), I love my family, my job, and I really do believe that everything happens for a reason.!
