Oregon Born has been incredibly blessed with the most amazing group of brand ambassadors.
Periodically we will be featuring Q & A posts with Oregon Born Ambassadors that will allow you to get to know them a little better.
This is the eleventh post in our Ambassador series.

Coos Bay, Oregon
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I have always loved animals so I thought I wanted to do something with animals but never had anything specific.
Why did you want to become an Oregon Born ambassador?
I found the organization through the Miss Oregon program and it seemed like a really cool company. I loved their clothing, and was excited for the opportunity to promote them!
What is your favorite part about being an Oregon Born ambassador?
I really enjoy showing how much I love Oregon by wearing Oregon Born clothing. But one of my favorite things is how amazing the company and owner is. He's a really great and kind person that I have loved getting to work with!
What is your favorite thing about Oregon?
One of my favorite parts of Oregon is the people and amazing opportunities that Oregon has! I have met so many incredible people, and been involved with so many wonderful opportunities that are in Oregon!
What is your favorite food?
I love Mexican food, specifically burritos.
What is your favorite hobby?
I love dancing, I've danced ballet for 11 years and just recently started dancing en pointe!
What is your favorite travel destination?
I went on a trip to Grand Cayman once, and I got to see and hold so many turtles! I would definitely want to go there again.
What kind of pets do you have, if any? What are their names?
I have a cat named Mochi!
What causes are you passionate about?
I love animals so I am passionate about almost anything involving them! I really feel like advocating for animals is so important, because animals do so much for us, and play such a big part in our lives
Do you volunteer? If so, where?
I volunteer with an organization called Guide Dogs for the Blind and I love the opportunity to be a puppy raiser and train future guide dogs to help people!
What is an interesting fact about you?
I love musicals and I have seen over 10 musicals in person, including Hamilton, Wicked, and Come From Away! I always love the opportunity to see live musicals when I can!
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am really proud of competing for Miss Oregon's Teen! I loved getting to represent the Pacific Northwest as Miss Northwestern's Teen! It was so cool getting to compete. But one of my favorite parts was meeting the other titleholders and connecting with everyone! I had such a great time and I am really proud of pushing past my comfort zone and competing.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
A really big goal for me is going to college! I want to major in psychology and law! One of my dream schools to study at is actually right here in Oregon! I would love to be a duck at University of Oregon.
I love reading and one of my favorite books I've read recently is The Hunger Games. The author does such a great job at creating such an incredible story that makes you have to keep reading.
I love Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes, I've actually danced a ballet solo to it!
I am repeating answers, but Hunger Games! I usually don't like movie adaptations of books, but I feel like the movie did a really good job of representing the book well. Although the book is better!
And lastly, what was your favorite TV show when you were 5 years old. And what is your favorite TV show today?
My favorite show when I was 5 was Clifford! I used to watch it on repeat, much to my sister's disappointment. My favorite show now is Gilmore Girls, my mom introduced it to me and I really love the storyline and all the characters! And now this is what I watch on repeat, lol!
