I'm from Rochester, New York and I'm currently living in Los Angeles, California.

What are your measurements? I'm 5'7, 34-24-38
Being from New York, what was it like growing up there? Were you the popular girl in high school? Growing up was lovely because I have the most amazing mother. I moved a lot and attended 16 different schools. I did get into trouble a bit but eventually, I settled down and was on the high honor roll. I definitely would consider myself a popular girl back in those days. I was captain of the cheerleading squad and also the prom princess Lol
Give us 5 words that you think best describe you? Loving, positive, energetic, humorous, ambitious
You're a proud Gemini, how would you describe your personality in that regard? Yes, I'm a Gemini. I'm very outgoing. I'm a people person and I get along with everyone because I'm very open minded. Because there are two of me, figuratively speaking, I'm able to have empathy for others and not just focus on my own feelings. I'm a multitasker and very determined as well.
What would you say is your best asset? What do others compliment you on the most? That I'm just as pretty on the inside as I am on the outside That's my favorite compliment because it means much more to me than the others.
How did you get started in modeling? I did a photoshoot for a video gaming website. Afterwards, the domino effect started! I built up my portfolio while living in New York and I eventually moved to Cali where I was then signed to 90210 talent. It has been a blessing ever since.
You have a long resume of notable features, do you have a personal favorite? I'm so thankful for everything I've accomplished so every feature is my favorite. To name a few, I appeared in ESPN The Magazine in the Oxywater advert along with numerous music videos. Snoop's videos are some of my favorites because he was on the cover of my first magazine feature (The Source). Also, a video I worked in with Justin Timberlake is one of my favorites because I was obsessed with NSYNC as a kid! I've been honored to work with actress Meagan Good and Oscar award winner Jamie Foxx. You can see all of my credits at Model Mayhem
I'm just as pretty on the inside as I am on the outside.
What do you enjoy most about modeling? The art of expressing emotions through images and being able to create different looks. Meeting so many wonderful photographers models and other entertainers is a plus along with traveling to so many different locations. The excitement of each new project and inspiring others to model ranks pretty high on my list as well.
You've rubbed elbows with a lot of celebs on a regular basis through your work, were there any memorable encounters? There are so many! Seriously, they have all been memorable. I'm blessed to have worked with such amazing people like Hugh Hefner, Holly, Kendra and Bridget. They were the first celebs I met because I didn't live in L.A. at the time of my first venture. I came for a photoshoot and ended up having dinner at the Playboy Mansion. That was my first time ever in L.A. I might add. I think that's what inspired me to move here! Now, we just have to get me in the pages of Playboy magazine.
I'm sure that will happen. Let's switch gears to learn more about what makes you tick. What type of man are you attracted to? Someone who's funny, secure, positive, genuine, and not afraid to tell me anything.
What trait do you think is most important in determining someone's attractiveness? Their personality. The way they treat others -- not just me.
Smart answer. If you could embed one quality in every guy, what would it be? Faithfulness
What body part of a man do you think is sexiest? Their back
When it comes to your taste in men, pick one: "the bad boy" or "the nice guy"? Women always like the "bad boy" but I like both
How does a man keep you interested once he's caught your attention? Being spontaneous, caring, motivating, and supportive of my career but interested in me as a person --not just "Jillisa Lynn" the model.
Well, how do you show him that he has your attention? I'd take time out of my busy schedule to spend with him since my career is my sole focus. If I'm really interested, I'd cut off all of my others as well
Let’s take it up a notch, are you the quiet type in the bedroom or the loud one? Mmmm I'm loud if necessary lol
When it comes to men, what are some of your turn offs? I don't like cocky guys that like to be center of attention or who flash their money around. Guys who try too hard to impress me are huge turn offs.
What's the most memorable thing a guy has done to get your attention? One guy flew across the country to come to one of my events. That showed he must've had a high level of interest lol
Do you have a quote that you live by? I have a bunch! I love quotes! A great one is "If you can't handle me at my worst you don't deserve my best"
Since you travel often, what is your favorite city?
My favorite would be Miami.
