my favorite piece of clothing...Favorite for functionality and comfort would be my black Danskin leggings because I have about a hundred pairs and everyone knows I literally wear them every day. Favorite as in interesting or fun would be some of the wacky tops I just got thrifting with my sister.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I was born and raised in Boston, went to high school in Vermont, did a couple years of college in Newport RI, and am about to graduate from Marymount Manhattan College with a B.A. in Theatre Arts, performance concentration. I live and work in NYC and after school I plan to continue my career in acting and modeling, (and become a Jedi Knight).


How did you first get started in modeling?
I began taking modeling seriously within the past year but I suppose I've been dabbling in it since I was a little girl. I've never been camera shy.


What are your favorite things about modeling?
I love the artistry behind it and I find that also being an actress really helps with my modeling. I enjoy the stories/concepts, meeting new people all the time who also love what they do, the fun locations, and of course, the fashion! I also like the challenges that modeling brings such as keeping my body in shape and managing myself.


How was your experience shooting an Editorial for EM Magazine featuring the Leona Collection?
Just reading this question made me smile and laugh out loud! Everything about the experience was great from Cristina DeHart, to the photographer: Jatawny Chatmon to the makeup artist: Joie Hayes, to the ice house location, to the clothing! I laughed and learned all day... couldn't have asked for a better experience.


Were you surprised to be chosen? How did you react when you found out?
I remember making my profile, noting the number of applicants and thinking, "Well, what have I got to lose?", but never imagining I'd be chosen! I was super surprised and excited when I found out.


Do you have any hobbies?
I have too many hobbies. It was very difficult for me to make the decision to focus on modeling and acting as a career. But I finally did and so of course I love film and fashion. I come from a family of musicians so naturally I love to sing, play guitar, ukelele, piano, and even write my own music. I love to paint or do really anything that's crafty like scrapbooking or building stuff. Unfortunately I've got a pretty big passion for food, especially baking, which can sometimes be an issue... (CUPCAKES AHHH!) I danced up until the end of high school and still love to when I can. I love makeup, writing, traveling, swimming, gardening, the list goes on...


What is currently your favorite piece of clothing?
Favorite for functionality and comfort would be my black Danskin leggings because I have about a hundred pairs and everyone knows I literally wear them every day. Favorite as in interesting or fun would be some of the wacky tops I just got thrifting with my sister.


Do you have a favorite artist (of any kind)?
This one's easy! My mother, Mary Westbrook-Geha, mezzo-soprano, is one of my favorite artists.


If you could transport yourself to any place in the world at this very moment, where would you go and why?
Probably to my mom's house in Vermont with my sister because I miss her and my mom constantly and we have cuddly, adorable chickens and our cat, Bruce, who is the best cat in the entire world. If not there, somewhere tropical and private.


If you could have a super power, what would it be and why?
I feel like people always come up with cool, unique answers to this question but I'm just going to stand by the old, faithful, "to fly". I still have crazy dreams that I can.
