What business or organization are you involved with? Castanet.

What is your role with that organization? Reporter.

What’s your favourite thing about living in the Okanagan? The hot summers and beautiful beaches.

If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would you choose and why? I would choose Seth Rogen, because he’s a comedic genius and I love a good laugh!

What’s your go-to happy place? It would have to be my mom and dad’s house in Okotoks, Alta., because there’s nothing better than hanging with your parents! Plus they make amazing food all the time.

What are you most proud of? I’m most proud of myself for starting my career at such a young age and for moving to a different city on my own to pursue that career.

What are the top three things on your bucket list?
1. Write a book.
2. Go skydiving.
3. Travel to Europe.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? The weirdest thing I’ve ever eaten would definitely have to be the scorpion pizza I tried at the Calgary Stampede.

Latest movie or book? The latest movie I watched was The Grudge remake. I’m a sucker for scary movies.

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? The best gift I ever received was my car on my 17th birthday.

If today were your last day, how would you spend it? I would completely disconnect from social media and fly somewhere warm with all of my loved ones. I’d like to watch my last sunset on a beach in Mexico.
