My favorite author is: Chelsea Handler & Stieg Larsson
The last book I read: “One Day” by David Nicholls
My idol is: Obviously I try to be like Christ-like, so I would say God but on a realistic level, I’d say my Aunt, Tracy Hester because she’s one of the strongest women I know
My favorite kind of music is: I’m really into Ingrid Michaelson and Tristan Prettyman right now, but my taste is always changing. I love country, alternative and I’m a big fan of anything on my ipod that motivates me during a run.

If there's one thing I won't do it's: There’s not a whole lot of things I won’t try at least once. I love risks, dares and challenges.
My pet peeve is: Trying to have a phone conversation with a distracted person. I’d rather they hang up and call me back when they can focus…. I’m guilty of it, too.
When I'm nervous I: pick at my nails
My favorite memory is: Hosting a reality show. It’s one of those “once in a lifetime” experiences and I’m so blessed that it happened to me. I was able to travel for four months straight and I learned so much about life and myself.
If I could, I'd write a book about: ’ve written a book called “Sorority Soldier.” It’s about going from being a Phi Mu at LSU in Baton Rouge to a Soldier in combat boots and fatigues. It developed out of my blog I kept while in Iraq, which was described as “legally blonde meets private benjamin.” I’m currently polishing the final product and querying agents.
