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 could have been in the FBI... but instead, I chose to use my talent of “investigating” to help my close friends and family! You want to know if he’s cheating? I’ll find out... Want to know if that perfect job is really as cozy as it sounds? I’ll do the digging and find out. I used to be embarrassed about this skill of mine, but it’s come in handy over the years ?✔️?

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

I am a HUGE animal lover...If I were voted the cover girl, I would use that money to invest in local charities for animals that have been mistreated or abandoned. We have a serious issue in Louisiana with animal abuse which has caused our shelters to overflow and in some cases shut back to my community and making sure I leave my mark on taking care of innocent animals is one of my many goals in life.
