Ottaway has also appeared in music videos for Kid Rock, Chris Young, Big and Rich, Dallas Smith, Mitchell Tenpenny, and Sammy Arriaga.

“I never would have thought I would pursue modeling ever, but I am truly so glad that I did,” Ottaway said about her modelling career. “It gives me the opportunity to see the world, and that is why I fell so madly in love with it. Although it can be lonely at times traveling by myself, the work days are certainly never boring. Every new job, I get to work with a different team, which I love. I am very much a people person and l love meeting new people.”
