I'm 27-years-old and have lived in the Tacoma area pretty much my entire life. I live in the Stadium District with my wonderful boyfriend, Darren, and my pup, Emma. I have been working at Jones Animal Hospital as a technician for the past six and a half years and I love almost every moment there. We see the usual cats and dogs and some pocket pets on a regular basis - and then there are the random exotics we get like bobcats, a cougar, and my favorite - a 400 lb Bengal Tiger. Never a dull moment.
RELATIONSHIP WITH TACOMA
Well, as I stated before - I've lived in Tacoma all my life. I love it here. I know there are more places that are far more exciting and glamorous out there, but for some reason I can't get enough of T-town. I love the people here and the closeness that everyone seems to have with each other. It seems like everyone always knows everyone, and that's pretty rad to me.
DEFINITION OF SEXY
My definition of sexy would be someone who knows who they are and what they want with life - someone who is confident, but not cocky. Someone who can definitely make me laugh - and being a little easy on the eyes helps too.
THE HONOR, THE FUTURE
I'm completely honored to be one of Tacoma's Most Sexy. Hell, I didn't even know I was nominated! I think it's great that the people who may not have the most dazzling jobs get to shine and have their moment in the spotlight. I work hard at what I do, and it's awesome someone even thought to put my name in. Now that the word has been let out that I am, in fact, sexy -I will probably just keep on doing what I do and be badass about it.
BIGGEST TACOMA TURN-ONS
Well, one would have to be the Tacoma Aroma. You always know you're almost home when you reach that point on the freeway and it hits you like a brick wall, especially in the summertime. Also, I love all the random little shops and restaurants around the area. Breakfast at the Hob Nob is amazing and everyone has to enjoy a tasty "Alfonzo Special" from Alfonzo himself at El Guadalajara. Delish!
BIGGEST TACOMA TURN-OFFS
Potholes. I hate them. Oh, and well, the Tacoma Aroma.
TACOMA'S SEXIEST PERSON?
Honestly, I can't pick just one person. There are just so many people and everyone is sexy in their own way.
PEOPLE CAN FIND ME BEING SEXY AT ...
If people want to find me being sexy, they could go to Jones Animal Hospital. Or, I'm constantly at Doyle's Public House having a pint of Guinness with my friends!
ANYTHING YOU'D LIKE TO ADD?
Once again, I think this is all freaking awesome - to even be considered is an honor, but winning is so much better! I just wanted to say thank you to whoever voted for me and this all really means a lot.
