Occupation: Business Analyst
Why She’s a Semifinalist: You probably won’t be surprised to hear that Sullivan does a little modeling, but her main occupation is crunching numbers for an insurance company. “I’m a numbers girl,” she says. She’s also a family girl, the mother of two children (one girl, one boy) and wife to singer-songwriter Hunter Sullivan. “Our family listens to all kinds of music, and we expose our children to all genres.” Another hobby of the couple is giving back to local charities, and Turtle Creek Recovery Center and Family Gateway top their list of favorites. And though one of her favorite belongings is her make-up, she says she’d make it in the wilderness if necessary. “I grew up in the country, so we were taught survival skills.”
Fun Fact: Sullivan’s parents are both from Mexico, but she was raised in the small town of Maypearl, Texas. (Current population: 955)
