The "Featured Member of the Month":

Rebecca Palmer, a model from Portland, OR. (Member #313)

Rebecca grew up in Fargo, North Dakota and moved to the Northwest in 3rd grade.  She has lived in the Portland area ever since, except for some short stays (6 months to a year) in Miami, FL, South France, London, and Utah. 

Rebecca is an ex-gymnast, platform diver, professional ballerina/dancer, and ice skate.  About 4 years ago, she began modeling. In addition to her modelling career, she is currently a full time graduate student.  And, she has experience as both a make-up artist and wardrobe stylist, keeping up-to-date on the latest fashions and trends.  

"I love modeling and fashion because it combines my love for creativity, art, athleticism, composition, and meeting new people. As an art school graduate, I have a passion for design, art, and creativity and I love to try new concepts, ideas, and experimentations in modeling.  I approach modeling with professionalism and as a performer and artist. I have danced since the age of three and have extensive performance experience and take direction and creative ideas with ease."

Rebecca is represented by the agency Sports Unlimited (Portland/LA), but her contract also allows her to do outside work. She says that "SportsU is a great agent, but I also find substantial work through networking and my own efforts."   In addition to her profile, she uses MySpace and Model Mayhem to promote herself online.
