One made by Thrillist and the other by Insider, Travel Dares Edition. Usually, she models under her own name for self promotion and promoting local shows.

Fun Facts About You?: I used to be a clinical mental health therapist and now I’m a clown. Patch Adams said it best, “The role of the physician and the clown are the same. It’s to elevate the possible and relieve suffering.”
Why Do You Want To Be Ms. Rockin Route 66?: I’ve always been fond of pinup style. As a native New Mexican, Route 66 has always been a part of my life. It would be an honor to represent it in pinup form.
