Career: Personal Trainer, WNBF Pro, Muralist, Fitness Model
I’ve always played various sports since the age of 4. I stuck with my favorite sport of soccer and played college ball and indoor soccer leagues after college. I began kickboxing as an outlet after having twins and started lifting seriously for the past 4 years.
Why did you begin competing?
After having 3 kids and giving up my career as a teacher to stay home to care for them, I began going to the gym for some me time. I started incorporating more free weights into my routine and pretty soon, my physique began to change. I began reading magazines and surfing the web for workout ideas and came across many athletic women who possessed amazing physiques. Soon, with a few diet tweaks and dedication, I started feeling the best I had in years. Several people approached me, both in and out of the gym, about competing. I never took it seriously until a manager at a gym pulled me aside and said she would help me with posing for a competition. “You could totally do this”, she said. I thought, why not? I had a huge case of stage fright and fear of speaking in front of large groups. I figured what better way to not only face my fear, but aim for looking like the female athletes I had always admired in magazines!! With her help and a great nutrition coach, I began my journey at the age of 38, of not only competing in figure but Bikini and Miss Fit Body as well!!

|What do you like best about competing?
There are so many aspects to competing that I love! The dedication through diet and exercise that it takes to achieve the look of a competitor is at the top. Competing helps me stay focused during contest prep and allows for growth during the off-season. I also take great pride in the fact that I am a natural competitor and will remain that way. I hope that by competing and constantly striving to make improvements to my body, that I can inspire women at any age with kids or no kids, that anything is attainable with hard work.

Words to live by:
I find the following two quotes are great words to live by and ones that have got me through some challenging times recently. Despite those times, I have gotten a second chance to do what I love to do and inspire others to overcome challenges not matter what they might be.
“What does not break you will only make you stronger.
“Life is a grindstone. Whether it grinds us down or polishes us up, depends on us”. ~ L. Thomas Holdcroft
