Be you. The world will adjust.
My first appearance occurred on July 27, 1997, in Boca Raton, Florida. I was the fourth child (and fourth daughter) of Samuel M. and Alison Moore Smith. Later, two brothers would join the family. In 2001, we moved to Utah where I still reside.
I was homeschooled from kindergarten through high school. In high school I attended the music, dance, and theater classes at Pioneer High School for the Performing Arts while continuing my academics at home. I attended Brigham Young University (BYU) on a talent scholarship, majoring in Music Dance Theatre.
As a child, sports were my focus: karate, soccer, softball, swimming…you name it. In junior high I was in my first musical and was hooked. Acting, singing, and dancing—with some modeling on the side—put sports on the back burner. In late 2013, I was seen performing in a musical by a casting director and invited to audition for my first film gig. Film work is a dream come true!
She is best known for starring as Julie Flinders in the cult classic Saturday’s Warrior, the viral Mormon Message Bullying – Stop It, the Hip Hop Hygienist, her creative story music videos, and myriad other commercials and films. In August of 2017, she won 1st place in the music division of CVX’s Next Big YouTuber contest.
In August 2017, I became engaged to my first (and last) boyfriend and the love of my life, Justin Mark Packer, a pre-med student at BYU. And, yes, we met on Tinder. We will be married in early 2018 in the Salt Lake Temple. (If you’re dying to see his surprise proposal—and I know you are—you can watch the whole thing unfold here.)
A British telly aficionado at heart, she loves watching BBC with her mom whilst eating Nutella.
