  • What famous person reminds you of yourself? Gabrielle Reece.
  • What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Hope Solo for her stoicism and competitiveness and Sandra Bullock for her effortless humor and charm.
  • What scares you most about traveling? The language barrier and cultural differences.
  • What excites you most about traveling? Seeing and experiencing new cultures, trying new things and stepping out of my comfort zone.
  • Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I think the biggest challenge will be admitting when we need help. We are both independent and strong-willed.
  • Pet peeve about your teammate: Beth tends to not always state her true feelings during team meetings. She also hates asking for help.
  • What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Italy, because I have family there. Plus, there's so much history and heritage. I love the language, lifestyle, architecture, romanticism and food of Italy.
  • What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Some spectacular memories and a new outlook on the world/life. Also, to strengthen my bond with Beth.

  • Pet peeve about your teammate: Sometimes she won't ask for help because she doesn't want to look like she's weak.
  • What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Italy, because that is where my family is from.
