On behalf of Maxim Cover Girl and Homes for Wounded Warriors, we would like to thank you for helping us support our injured veterans.

Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

I love adventure and anything that gets your adrenalin pumping. I am a skydiver and an AIDA2 freediver! I will be going to the deepest pool in the world in Italy in February to freedive 131 feet and take my AIDA3 and AIDA4 licences. Wish me luck!

If you were voted our cover girl, what would you do with $25,000?

I would celebrate by going on a 7 day hike in the mountains of Uganda to see mountain gorillas roaming free and help with conservation. I am a huge animal lover and have always wanted to do volunteer work in Africa to help with the conservation of black rhinos, gorillas and lions and deforestation that is threatening many of these majestic animals. I would definitely take my parachute with me and try to find a drop zone and do a few jumps while I am there.
