I was born and raised in Illinois. I grew up in a small town south of Rockford. Yeah, I’m a true country kid. I’m the youngest of three girls. I can be pretty adventurous when I choose to be. The first time I ever rode a horse was in Mexico. I took a trail ride where I had to cross a very deep and rushing river in order to see a waterfall in a forest. I was the first in my family to move out of state for a job. I lived in Chattanooga, Tenn., for a year before returning home. I love to cook. I like reading anything from John Grisham. My favorite shows are "Grey’s Anatomy," "Scandal" and "Nashville." I am an animal lover, but right now all I have is a cat. One day I’d like to get another Siberian husky and a horse. I love dark chocolate and Coca-Cola. My favorite artists are Eric Church and Kenny Chesney.
