    Official CBS Ghost Island bio excerpts (1/31/18):


    "Pet peeves: People with constantly pessimistic or negative energy.


    What's your personal claim to fame? Graduating college. I grew as a person and learned a lot about dedication and self-motivation. It gave me the foundation to continue my education and pursue a career as a physician assistant.


    If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? A mattress to get a good night's rest, a toothbrush because I can't imagine not brushing my teeth for more than a day, and definitely food because nobody likes starving.


    Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Parvati. I think I could use my charm to build relationships, and I think I have the competitive spirit and wit she had.


    Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I have the traits needed to make me successful. I am a hard worker who is extremely driven to reach my goals. I am agile and athletic from a background in dance and gymnastics. I am personable and get along well with people of all backgrounds and ages. I am a competitor and love a good challenge."
