What has been your greatest accomplishment? Winning the Fitness America World Title in 2011.
What culture would you like to experience? I’d like to experience Indian wedding culture. They celebrate for a week with family and friends. I love henna tattoos and how the bride wears a red sari on her wedding day.
What are three things Patriots fans would be surprised to know about you? I love learning new things; I’m addicted to Bravo Housewives; and I would love to live the rest of my life on the beach in a bikini.
How would you describe your style? My style changes daily. Some days I like to be edgy while other days I like more of a softer look. Two things you’ll always find on me are gold accessories and painted toenails.
If you knew the world was ending in 2013, what are some of the things you would be sure to accomplish? I would definitely go skydiving and make sure everyone in my life knew how much I love them. Then I would eat nachos!
What is your dream proposal? A relaxing night with homemade dinner, wine and the ring attached to my yorkie Toby’s collar.
What is your favorite board game? Life is the best game! I love getting my car full of pegged kids!
What’s your favorite room in your house? My sewing room. I could spend all day in there. I love creating one-of-a-kind pieces from start to finish.
What is your favorite healthy meal to make? Grilled chicken patties with homemade baked sweet potato fries.
