Time in Lawrence: Six and a half years.
Occupation: Waitress at Milton’s.
What were you doing when scouted: I was sitting at the Bourgeois Pig, having a drink after work.
How would you describe your style: Comfortable boho with a touch of (rebel).
What are your favorite fashion trends: Jeans, feather earrings, head scarves. Lately I’ve been into the ’80s off-the-shoulder T-shirt look.
Least favorite fashion trends: I’m not a fan of people that wear their hot pink pajamas outside of the home, or when friends dress exactly the same.
What would you like to see more of in Lawrence: I’d like to see people wearing comfortable shoes after 10 p.m.
What would you like to see less of in Lawrence: Less dog poop on the sidewalks. Is it really that hard to clean up after your dog? I’d also like to see less half-naked joggers on Mass Street. Overall, I love this town.
Who are your fashion influences: I kinda wish I was Kate Hudson a lot of the time, which I am ashamed to admit. I also like Samantha Mathis in the ’80s had good style, and I love Uma Thurman.
The most famous person you’ve served at Milton’s is: Ryan Adams.
People say I look like: I get Mary Louise Parker all the time. Someone probably says I look like her at least once a day.
The best part about working downtown is: The community of people is awesome — the best thing on earth. I love my job. I’ve worked at Milton’s for six years, and I still love the food and the coffee.
Tell us a secret: “St. Elmo’s Fire” is the theme song that runs through my head at all times.
