America's Teen & Mrs. America (Paranormal...)

I have been cast in a Christian horror film called "Paranormal" as Caroline. "Paranormal" is produced by Cross Shadow Productions. My character, Caroline, is a beautiful girl who has that "all eyes on me" slow entrance into the scene. Caroline definitely catches at least one person's eye... that's all I can tell you about that ... But a really cool thing about this movie is not only that it is a Christian film, a horror movie, and that my role is a beautiful girl, but that I am co-starring with Mrs. America - Maureen MacDonald!!! She plays the role of Karen and she is such a wonderful person to be around. We have a great scene together and I am really looking forward to working with her along with everyone else. I was able to meet her husband as well, both of them really nice and plesant people :)
I am really blessed to have been chosen for this film and I am extremely excited to be working with everyone at Cross Shadow Productions. My mom and I attended the Meet-and-Greet Friday Feb 13 in Apex, NC where we were able to meet with the cast, crew, and their families. Everyone seems to be very excited about this and everyone is amazingly nice! I had a great time there and I know I will have a great time filming!

God bless !!!

Health Fair!

Thank you to Total Care Home Health, a division of Gentiva, for allowing me to help with the Grand Strand Health Fair at Coastal Grand Mall in Myrtle Beach, SC. Nurses from Total Care gave free blood pressure and pulse-ox checks, while other Myrtle Beach area organizations provided many other free services and assessments. Other groups included the American Red Cross, Hospice, American Cancer Society/Relay for Life, Grand Strand Hospital, chiroprators, vision exams, and approximately fifty more volunteer groups. For just $20 you could get a 30 panel blood screening, which is an over $300 value. This service was provided by Grand Strand Hospital to encourage families to get these tests which otherwise are often unaffordable.
I signed autographs, took photos with all ages from infant to geriatric, and assisted with taking a few blood pressures. We had a great time socializing and promoting overall health in the Myrtle Beach area.
Thank you Lynn, Pat, and James for having me today...and to those across America I encourage you to attend local health fairs or just schedule your annual physical. Prevention is so much easier and less stressful than treatment of any type of health problem. Remember to eat right, exercise, and consult you physician with any questions you might have relating to your personal health!

Stay healthy!

Wednesday, February 4, 2009's a secret!!

America's Teen is having a wonderful time in New York City! It seems to be growing on me like a home away from home! I had the opportunity on January 27, 2009 to meet some very influential television and production directors. Although I can not really give any details, I must admit that being America's Teen opened the doors for me to have the chance to meet really incredible people! As I make plans to possibly move up to the Big Apple after my reign this year, it is so nice to know that I have made some true friends along the way that want to see me succeed in life even beyond the crown.
Auditions, just never know what each day will produce in NYC!!
I was also priviledged to visit my dear friend Charlie Winfield of Funny Faces Today, a modeling agency that I have been working with in NY since I was 15! We had a great time catching up and he even posed with me for some pics!

New York is truly an amazing city with some incredible friends!

As I visited the 14th state and made my 47th appearance in Greenwich, CT at the photo studio of Matthew Cherry! We had a blast shooting and then went out to a cool place called City Limits for dinner. All the people I met were wonderful! Although the ice covered roads, trees, sidewalks were a bit treacherous.
I'm totally loving everywhere and everyone I meet!
What an amazing year!!
Loving Life!
