Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m originally from a very small coastal town in NSW. As soon as I was able to work I got a job, started saving to move away and ended up on the Gold Coast. Then I became a registered nurse and through being creative with my social media I started picking up modelling work.

How long have you’ve been modelling?
I’ve been modelling on and off for the last year. When I’m not modelling I work as a registered nurse in an acute critical care area that treats people of all ages and medical conditions, which is very rewarding. I’ve also just been accepted into a Law program so that will also be keeping me busy! 

When do you feel sexy?
At the beach or by the pool, with no make-up, swimming and relaxing in the sun.

What is your best asset?
A friendly down-to-earth personality with an itty-bitty waist and a round thing in your face!

What have you learned about men over the years?
They make great friends. I love getting my guy friends’ opinions and I’m intrigued by their outlook on life.

What’s one thing men should always know about women?
Communication and a little romance goes a long way.

What do you look for in a man?
Someone who is romantic, intelligent, ambitious, hardworking and confident.

Describe your ideal date.
Hiking and exploring the wilderness then dinner and drinks at a nice restaurant followed by a movie at night.

Where would you like to be in five years? 
I’d like to be a successful lawyer and each year travelling to a third world country to volunteer my nursing skills.
