Favorite thing about Los Angeles: Besides being able to lay by the pool in January, there is always something to do. Music, art or food events to grab any genre of interests, an entire world of cinema and most importantly, our amazing sports teams.
Favorite restaurant in Los Angeles: Pace. It’s a little hidden gem up Crescent Heights. Amazing Italian food.
Favorite sports team (college or pro): LA Angels of Anaheim, Anaheim Ducks & UCLA Bruins
Who is your favorite athlete: Tim Salmon. He started as an Angel and continued all 14 seasons of his career as an Angel. And similar to the Angels organization, his career had the highest of highs; 299 home runs (most in franchise history) and lowest of lows; 1360 strikeouts. He was the AL Rookie of the Year in 1993 and was a big part of the 2002 World Series Championship team. His heart has and always will lie with the Angels, just like mine.
Greatest sports moment or memory: Being at Game 6 of the 2002 World Series, Giants v Angels. Angels trailed 5-0 to the Giants in the bottom of the 7th when Spiezio hit a 3-run homer that rallied us closer to a win. Then Erstad hit a solo homer quickly followed by Glaus hitting a two-run double that gave the Angels a 6-5 win. The energy in the stadium that day was unlike anything I’ve ever felt. Angel fans had been waiting for this moment for 41 seasons. It was incredible.
What sport would you play professionally if you could, and why: I would be a quarterback. Completely far-fetched considering I am female but I love football, I come from a football family and who doesn’t dream of being the "Star Quarterback"?? Yup, even I do. Move over Aaron Rodgers, you’ve got competition! (I wish)
What is your favorite spot in LA to grab a cocktail: I love Warwick for the evening and Pearls during the day. Warwick is this sexy lounge with throw back music, really cool art, cozy couches by the fireplace and fresh fruit cocktails. Pearls is a bar on Sunset that has the best passion fruit mimosa I’ve ever had. You can sit and watch the game on Sundays, eat french toast and have endless mimosas!
Favorite So Cal beach to soak in the rays and bury your toes in sand: When I was at UCI, I used to go down to Newport Beach and study on the sand. Since I grew up in OC, I have so many fond memories in Newport that it will remain my favorite beach.
What song do you love to dance to: Robin Thicke, "Give It 2 U"! I love this song! Especially the part where he says "Angel." It just cracks me up for some reason. It has such a great beat and puts me in an amazing mood.
If you can have any superpower, what would it be: There are so many movies showing this isn’t the best super power but I wish I could read people’s minds. I’m such a curious person by natures and always asking questions that it would just alleviate my need to know everything.
What is the most important quality you look for in a man: That he loves his mother.
What is more romantic, flowers or chocolates: Neither. I prefer a card and a kiss.
The celebrity or athlete you would most like to go out on a date with: Chris Hemsworth. I mean, who doesnât want to be rescued by Thor??
If you could have dinner with anyone who would it be: My Aunt Lea
What is the one item you could not live without: My cell phone. It’s practically glued to my hand. I need to be connected to everybody and everything at all times.
What do you think is the greatest invention ever: Internet. You can do anything you want and learn how to do anything by a few clicks on your keyboard.
What is the last book you read: Shark Tank. I am obsessed with the show, all the entrepreneurs and the inspiration it brings to the common person with a dream.
What is your favorite movie: The original Footloose with Kevin Bacon followed by Van Wilder, Grandma’s Boy and Anchorman
Most exotic place you have visited: Osaka, Japan
What’s the best assignment you’ve worked as a Fox Sports Girl: Going to New Orleans last year for the Super Bowl. It was pre-Mardi Gras and as you could imagine, quite a collaboration of fans. Experiencing the city’s authenticity and hanging with the die-hard sports fanatics was an absolute blast.
