Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! Tell us about your daily schedule as a model, do you have a routine? After the gym, I like to get in the dry sauna to sweat out any toxins. I’m a super “health“ freak but I like to indulge sometimes… I have to earn my naughty desires because I do enjoy them.  

How do you like to begin your day? After I get ready, I go through my phone and emails. Lunch with friends during the day going to the beach (private ones) playing golf and exploring fun and new things. 

What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? My biggest dream would be to make a difference with just my name. Those close to me I hold dear and look after. I want to make things happen and create magic somehow.  

What helps you decompress and relax? I’m a sucker for the spa. I love facials and massages. I like taking care of myself. It’s extremely important. I like listening to music of all kinds! I love to cook. I’m a ninja in the kitchen. I love my knives and to feed people. It’s one of my love language. I’m not good at baking and I’ve learned in life you need to know what you are good at and what you are not. Capitalize on your assets.

Who has been the most influential person in your life and why? The most inspirational person in my life is my half-brother. He came from meager beginnings my father left his mother. He came into my life when I was 8. He had failed out of college and decided to reinvent himself. Went back to school. Started at the bottom of a global corporation and now is the president! Taught me about having fun and hard work. It pays off, his attitude. Treating everyone exactly the same with respect and integrity. To never fail and never to give up. He is the most successful individual I have ever met he earned it all. I am honored and proud. My father was extremely important as well. He was and still is Grand Torino… “get off my lawn” type of guy. I was always early and my boyfriends’ cars were on tires, I found out. Lol

How romantic are you? I’m a hopeless romantic. No question and I’m loyal like a golden retriever and honest to a fault sometimes. 

Are you a city traveler or nature explorer? I love being in nature, but I clean up well. I like to feel the wind in my hair and I‘m not afraid to get dirty. I don’t mind if things get out of control because I can put things back where they belong. I am skilled in this department. We all wear many hats in life, and mine is a firefighter. Don’t you agree? Which hat would you like me to wear… I will adjust the brim accordingly. I like to play! Let’s go. Shifting is important in life, and I like to play with the joystick. 

What is the most memorable date you’ve ever had? He most memorable date I ever had was to pack my bags fly first class to London and roam Europe together for 3 weeks. I learned so much! My passport is almost full now. We broke up 4 years later. It became a golden cage and I walked away with a backpack and my daughter learned to start again. I figured ME out. I love myself now, and it’s contagious. 

What was the biggest lesson from your worst breakup? The biggest lesson from my worst breakup would be to trust myself and that I can get through anything. 

Would you rather be loved, respected, or admired? I would rather be respected. Respect outlasts love or admiration and is more meaningful. 

What’s on your travel bucket list? Japan is next on my travel bucket list!
