Fun fact about me:
My favorite type of music is the “oldies.”

If you were the newly elected mayor of Hilton Head Island or Bluffton, what would be the first thing on your agenda?
I would address better street lighting to help eliminate the number of accidents and deaths, but still keep the turtles in my mind, of course!

Favorite holiday movie:
Home Alone.

What quality do you most admire in others?
Being kind no matter what; you never know what some else is going through in life.

What local event is a “must-do” for you every year?
Chamber of Commerce event—“Taste of the Season.”

Why should our readers vote for you as Bachelorette of the Year?
I have a huge heart and would do anything for anyone. I am active in our community and, to be completely honest, the number one reason I agreed to this nomination is because I was told I get $2,500 towards the charity of my choice—which is a rehab center, due to the death of my younger brother who passed from an overdose June 2, 2016.

Charity you are playing for:
Any Length Recovery Center, Sumter S.C.

Would things get better or worse if humans focused on what was going well rather than what’s going wrong?

Things would get better, because positive thinking is key! Focus on the good and more good will happen!

To what do you attribute the biggest successes in your life?
My strong-willed personality and drive to make a better life for myself. My childhood wasn’t the greatest growing up, but I knew I would work hard in everything I did to achieve my goals.

How about your largest failures?
Thinking I can do everything on my own, and not asking for help when needed.

What is your personal mantra:
To surround myself with positive people who will bring out the best in me, and I hope I can do the same for them.
