My mother, Maria. She was the most amazing mother; she always supported me in every way. She was always behind me pushing me to do better and be better.

I wanted to exude the same beauty inside and outside that my mom brought into this world.

What was your first opportunity within your chosen industry and how did you get selected?
I applied many times over the years to get into the funeral business, but the opportunity never presented itself. It is not an easy industry to get into by any means. Then one day I applied through an app for an administrative position. I interviewed and shared with my then/soon-to-be general manager the story of losing my brother 5 years prior to the murder. I explained the want to give back and help families the same way I was helped by the funeral home staff when we had my brother’s funeral. I was destined to be in this industry and to use my pain and grief to help others to cope, overcome, and find some sense of comfort and peace.
What has been your favorite assignment so far? Explain.
Amazing. I meet so many grieving families every day and I connect with each of them. I have a very purposeful career and I love the hugs I receive, the tears from the families thanking me for all that I do, and just being a vessel for people in need.
What is your future goal within the industry? How are you working towards those goals?
I plan to stay in the funeral business in an administrative capacity and manage the funeral home and eventually work towards becoming a licensed funeral director or mortician.
Have you ever had that, “I made it” moment? What & When was it?
Yes. When I first started in this business I wanted to give up. It was so overwhelming and for someone with PTSD, it was very intimidating as well I did not think I would learn all of this and be able to completely understand and be successful at it. After listening to my mom saying, “don’t give up, remember your brother, this is what you wanted”. I stuck it out and about a month or two later I had that moment where I said YES, I made it! I did it! I completely understand and can do this! And I love it!
Can you tell us about your least favorite experience so far? How did it change your approach to success?
Though I love what I do, I do come into contact with families or individuals who are pretty angry every now and then. They project their anger onto me and can be pretty brutal at times. I think dealing with those types of people tends to bother me a bit still but over time I am learning that ultimately it is not me they are angry with, and I project my energy over theirs to create a more pleasant experience.
Tell us about your perfect partner and what qualities they would poses.
The perfect partner would be someone who supports my dreams. Someone who provides safety, security, and honesty. I would say an Alpha male with a tender heart for the woman he loves. Someone who can be my backbone when life becomes too heavy. Someone who motivates and encourages me, who allows me to be my true self around them.
What Celebrity do you, or have you, had a crush on?
I would not say I have a crush on any celebrity. I am fussy as to the type of man I am attracted to. There are celebrities I find attractive such as Tom Hardy, Robert De Niro, and Cory Taylor. I would say the reason is I am attracted to a man with poise, and confidence, a true alpha male.
What is the most important relationship advice you have received?
Be careful whom you choose to procreate with.
What do you think the key to happiness is?
Take care of yourself and those you love around you. Being happy with who you are as a whole. Giving back and encouraging others.
What is your personal definition of the word CONFIDENCE?
Self-assurance and being completely secure and happy with who you are.
Was there ever a moment that you doubted your abilities and how did you overcome that?
Yes, there have been plenty of times I have doubted myself and I still struggle with it sometimes, but I manage to push through. I try to face my fears and self-doubt head-on because if I do not it will debilitate me.
Name an opportunity that you missed out on and what was your thought after?
I was supposed to be in a bikini model contest at a bike rally. I had never been to one before, so I was entered to compete. When I got there, I realized that it was not for me. I was just about to be called on stage when I made the quick decision to pass on the opportunity as I was not willing to sacrifice my values and who I am to win some random contest. It was a good lesson learned and until this day I am glad I missed that opportunity.
Tell us about a moment when your confidence was the key piece to your success.
Every day. I deal with grieving families every day; some are angry, and some are sad, and it is important that I always lead with complete confidence as well as compassion. It is essential for me to exude confidence because people depend on me in their times of weakness.
If a young girl/boy wanted to break into your industry, what advice would you give them?
I would tell them with modeling they need to set boundaries from the time they speak to a photographer and do their homework to check the photographer’s background and portfolio out, safety always comes first.
How do you prepare yourself to network with others? What is your thought process, going into those interactions?
I do not really prepare to network with people, I do what comes naturally and use my authenticity to lead the way.
Do you possess the insight to understand other people’s sincerity? Tell us about a moment when this happened.
Well, daily I must gauge people and how to deal with them accurately in my line of work. Being able to read the sincerity of others is something I am naturally good at but also trained to detect.
When do you personally feel more confident?
When I am dressed up, full makeup, heels, etc. When I feel healthy and look my best, I am my most confident.
Do you feel comfortable engaging with a group of people? Do you listen to or lead the conversation?
I am more inclined to sit and listen before I interject my opinion or give my thoughts on a particular topic. I am one to read the room before I speak.
