1. She loves getting inked, and eight tattoos currently adorn her body!
Her shoulder blade tattoo features a Lion in honor of her favorite novel “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.” There’s an Edward Gorey art on her right wrist. The phrase “Move or Bleed” is etched on her rib cage, amongst many others.

She is the youngest of four siblings, and daughter to Sarah Murdoch, a real estate agent, and Ralph Ricci, a group therapist.
