What is your charity of choice, and why is it important to you?

Show Hope Organization. This is important to me because a loving family with a strong cornerstone is the most important thing in a child’s life. Children are very precious, and this organization provides medical assistance and many times saves an orphan’s life. Show Hope then helps place them in loving homes.

What do you think makes a woman beautiful?

A woman full of life with an inner joy that overflows as she keeps a balance of taking care of others as well as herself.

Why do you think you’re a 10 Most Beautiful Women finalist?

I’m still trying to answer that question myself! I’m very humbled and honored to be chosen.

Do you volunteer, or are you involved in any philanthropic or community organizations?

I’ve served as a worship leader on the praise team, choir and other positions at Ridgecrest Baptist Church. I’ve served in the Springfield Public Schools, PTA executive committee. Currently my time is filled with recording, traveling, and working with MCBS Ministries.

How are those experiences meaningful to you?

I love being a mother and have always enjoyed being involved in my children’s lives and helping children in our community as well. Serving in the Music Ministry is an awesome experience and blessing. Sharing my life with others in order that my testimony and songs might strengthen and provide hope for others.

Tell us what you do for a living:

I am a recording artist/singer/songwriter.

What has been your proudest moment?

My proudest moments are when I see my children succeed.

What has been your biggest hurdle to overcome?

Surviving Brain Surgery, losing my mother to lung cancer, and recently being diagnosed and cured of lung cancer.

What are three words that describe you?

Loving, compassionate, strong

When you were a child, who did you think was the most beautiful woman?

My mom. When I was a child, she was always happy and smiling.

What’s your favorite source of inspiration?

My favorite source of inspiration is God and music. Through all my trials and tribulations, God has been my solid foundation. My passion for music and my desire to help those in need is my inspiration to write songs.

What advice would you give to a young girl about being beautiful?

Love who you are and stay beautiful on the inside, and you will be beautiful on the outside. Eat your veggies and drink lots of water!

What are your favorite ways to spend a day off?

Walking on a beautiful white beach.

What is your most prized possession?

A little ruby ring that my grandmother gave me before she passed away.

If you could have one talent that you don’t currently have, what would it be?

Playing the piano.

What’s something that might surprise us about you, or a story you love to tell?

When I was in grade school, I went on a float trip on the Eleven Point River and was pulled out of the canoe by a tree branch that got caught in my hair, and I went flying through the air! My dad jumped out of the canoe and swam upstream to save me while all the canoes crashed into a big pile of rocks!

Head to voting!
