What is the best gift you’ve ever received?
My parents bought me my first longboard for my 21st birthday!

Funny story actually…I tore my ACL two days before I received it in the mail… So I couldn’t ride it for a good 5 months after I got it. It was my favorite board I’ve ever ridden… and a few months after I could start long boarding again, somebody stole it.. so that was a bummer. Still my favorite gift I’ve ever received!

Morning person or night owl?
Both!!!

Person you got nervous meeting and why?
Taylor Swift… met her outside of a Wal Mart when I was in eighth grade, with four of my other best friends, and we fangirled so hard. She talked to us for probably about ten minutes, and she was so sweet to a few crazy fan girls who just made fools out of ourselves because we were so excited to meet her!

Chocolate or vanilla?
Not a chocolate person at all! Vanilla all the way!

Coffee or Tea?
Coffee 100%

What’s on the top of your bucket list?
I have lots of top contenders for my bucket list…

Either to go longboard in Iceland on Þjóðvegur 93 (National Road 93) just like the scene in “Secret Life of Walter Mitty”

or to somehow become good at surfing, and go surfing in Hawaii.

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Either an artist, or a professional skater, or surfer. The last two for sure didn’t work out.

Two fun facts about you:
I’ve torn my ACL twice. Once rock climbing, and the second time, leading worship. (yes, you read that right… leading worship.)

& I love riding horses!
