Located in the Kansas City area, I have teamed up with The Model Board to offer private and semi-private model coaching sessions to provide personalized and focused mentoring and coaching to help you reach your specific goals.
Sessions are booked on an hourly basis and held at The Model Board studio, located just west of Westport and north of the Country Club Plaza. My rate is $85 for a private 1-hour session, $120 for a private 90-minute session, and $120 for a 1-hour semi-private/duet session. For on-site photoshoot coaching, it is $60 per hour. Virtual options are also available for those unable to come to the studio!

- Runway (walk and posing)
- Photoshoot Posing
- On-set model coaching
- Industry & Agency fundamentals
- General and on-set model etiquette
I began my modeling career at the age of 16 when I auditioned for and was signed by John Robert Powers, a modeling school and agency in the Kansas City area, in 2004. In 2009 I signed with my local agency, Voices And. In 2010, I was signed with The Campbell Agency’s runway division in Dallas, and in 2013 I also signed with West Model Management in St. Louis. I always strive to improve my skills and believe you are never too good to stop learning. I have received one-on-one runway coaching from the legendary Jan Strimple and have also attended Coco Rocha Model Camp in NYC.
I enjoy being a part of the local fashion industry and have served as a Kansas City Fashion Council, Inc. board member and as the Model Director for Runway Review KC. I have judged casting calls and hosted many runway and pose workshops in the area. I have walked the runway not only for local designers but for notable brands such as Ralph Lauren, Armani, Harbison, and Brunello Cucinelli. Some of my favorite campaigns include Wendy’s, Sporting Kansas City, and PacSun.
After navigating the challenging modeling industry at a young age and with little guidance, I felt compelled to create my blog, ‘My Model Reality,' to share my knowledge with other aspiring models.
My goal has always been to be that mentor I wish I had had early in my career. Covering everything from model safety and mental health to building lasting relationships with agents and clients, I am always open and honest about the modeling industry's good and not-so-good aspects.
