Both her parents were in the military so she lived everywhere. She was born in California, but says she's from Alabama because she went to high school and college there. She has two brothers and two sisters and she's the middle child. Her ethnic background is Native American and Italian.
My family is military - mom, dad and sister - from the Air Force and somehow we ended up in Andalusia, Alabama. I scored really high on my military test, even though I didn't mean to, so they were pressuring me and pressuring me to join as well. They offered me really good benefits, and I would have been fully set up. But I said, 'I don't think I can do this. This is not my personality. This is not me.'
