To share a little information about herself, she is the eldest of two siblings and has two furry chocolate labs at home whom she adores. She likes to spend time outdoors hiking, camping, or at the beach with her friends and family. She also loves ice-cream and worked as a manager for two years at a Coldstone Creamery near her hometown in Calvert County, MD.
