Fourteen days, twelve of our gorgeous models and one epic luxury resort. Yes, this is how MAXIM does the “Cradle of Polynesia”…

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’ve always had two passions – animals and modelling. Growing up in Los Angeles, I did a lot of modelling. My mum owned her own promotional modelling company and was a model herself, so she knew the industry well and taught me a lot. Modelling as a kid was so much fun and it taught me to have thick skin while my confidence also skyrocketed. Although I enjoyed modelling, I wanted to do more with animals. So, I ventured a couple hours north for my bachelor’s degree, where I studied Animal Science. After receiving my degree, I moved to Australia to work at an Animal Conservation. I finally made my way back to sunny California, where I currently live and still model part-time while also volunteering at animal shelters.

Are there any other funny anecdotes you can share about this Destination MAXIM trip? 
I ate tons of dessert and drank a pitcher of beer before one of my shoots because I was unaware there was an upcoming group shot to be done. I felt a bit sick, and slightly tipsy – whoops!

What is your best asset?
Legs! Thank you mother for my long legs. Also, my brain – smart girls rock!

When do you feel sexy?
Any time I’m in heels – they resemble confidence. Whether it’s for date night, girls’ night out or at a photoshoot, I jump at the opportunity to put on a pair of heels. I also secretly wish I was taller – the taller the heel, the better.

What do you look for in a man?
Intelligent, athletic, driven and family-oriented.

Describe your ideal date?
First, we would go to a nice restaurant and have a steak dinner with a buffet of desserts with a bottle of champagne. Then we would go to the beach and bar hop along the water. Lastly, we would finish at a rooftop bar and dance the night away.

What’s next for you? Any exciting projects on the horizon you can share with us?
I have a couple brands that I’m working with, but I’d love to travel more with brands I’m passionate about.
