Tell us about yourself.
First and foremost I am a believer. Putting God first and letting Him lead my path is the single most important life lesson I’ve learned. Having a servant’s heart and loving people is key to a happy life. Together for 7 years and happily married for 3, my heart belongs to my husband Heath, a proud Dad and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who practices at Eastern Oklahoma Oralmax Surgery. Who would have known that a cute boy I went to middle school with would turn out to be my Prince Charming? We have a little girl named Camden who was born in New York where my husband and I lived for 4 wonderful years. I am Mrs. America full-time and a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse part-time. I’m busy, busy, busy, but loving life!
1. What does a typical day look like for you?
Juggling being a wife, mother to a toddler, having a career and now making appearances definitely has its challenges, but this is an opportunity that has a limited time frame. I spend a lot of time working with my platform of prescription drug abuse and drug awareness. I travel and share how I’ve dealt with losing a brother to addiction and how it’s a growing epidemic nationally. Recently, it has been meeting with city officials about ways to improve the Tulsa area, speaking at schools and organizations, working on my own website www.drugfreeok.org and I just finished competing in the Mrs. World competition. I also enjoy spending time with children, whether its volunteering at the Little Light House or promoting reading at a story time making a little one smile is worth every second. I try to plan trips and speaking engagements during my daughter’s school days or when Grandmas are available. My husband and I recently got back from Russia for a media tour for Mrs. America. Family is my top priority so I make the most of Mother’s Day Out days and nap-time.
2. What is your favorite local shop?
Black Sheep Boutique in The Farm shopping center, I love it. They have comfy Oklahoma sweatshirts that I live in and the boutique also offers an array of more dressy appearance outfits. You will also rarely find me without a Rustic Cuff on. I love representing Oklahoma and supporting local shops.
4. What is your favorite restaurant to eat and what is your favorite item on the menu?
5. What is your favorite play spot to take your daughter?
I love Story Time at the local libraries. My daughter gets to interact with kids and sing songs and then we can go find some books and sit together in a corner. My daughter loves to read and frankly I get bored reading the same books at home.
