What’s your favorite place in Maine and why?
My favorite place in Maine is the Moosehead Lake area. My other half has a camp on Lily Bay and we try to spend every spare moment we have on Maine’s largest lake. Summers are spent kayaking around inlets and islands, and winters are spent snowshoeing and cuddled up by the wood stove.

What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I don’t know if it’s because of my clumsiness or maybe my unpolished personality, but people are normally surprised to hear that I was Miss Teen Maine 2009. It was the first platform that I was given that allowed me to work for the betterment of the state. Although I am thankful for that opportunity, I think I’ll stick to magazines now.

What is your favorite winter activity in Maine?
Ice fishing. Although I am relatively new to the sport, I fell in love last winter when I pulled my first game fish through the ice. There is something very exhilarating about bundling up tight and heading out before the sun to face Maine’s meanest elements and drill a few holes.
