Fun fact about me:
I’m obsessed with finding sharks’ teeth when I go to the beach.

If you were the newly elected mayor of Hilton Head Island or Bluffton, what would be the first thing on your agenda?
I would work on making the crosswalks safer at night.

Favorite holiday movie:
Elf! I never get tired of it!

What quality do you most admire in others?
Perseverance

What local event is a “must-do” for you every year?
Oh, gosh, that is hard. There are so many great ones! I guess I’ll go with Harbourfest.

Why should our readers vote for you as Bachelorette of the Year?
Because I am a true Hilton Head Island local, and I embrace all things about the area and the needs of the local animals and people.

Charity you are playing for:
Rogue Rescue

Would things get better or worse if humans focused on what was going well rather than what’s going wrong?
Things would most definitely get better. What seems to be an obstacle can often be an opportunity to go in a better and more rewarding direction. We only need to stop complaining and start looking at things with fresh eyes. Problems require us to become smarter, more resourceful, and more determined.

To what do you attribute the biggest successes in your life?
Hard work and a need to always be improving.

How about your largest failures?
The times I have failed at something, it was because I had been focused on the wrong thing and let a “little thing” get in the way of the big picture. Although, I still don’t see them as failures because I learned from them.

What is your personal mantra:
May I never borrow anything from tomorrow’s happiness.
