I'm an IFBB Bikini Pro born and raised in Arizona. My whole life I've been active in sports; soccer, dance, competitive cheer. I thrive on a challenge and I love to push myself. When I was 22 I got out of a bad relationship and had a major change of direction in my life. I was given an opportunity to really focus on what made me happy and what fuels my drive. So I started working out at a gym and lifting weights. I loved feeling stronger, faster and being dedicated to something that I could continually improve on. The more I lifted, the more I loved the results. At that point I'd set my sights on my next goal, an NPC Bikini competition. It took a little time for me to mentally prep myself for that challenge, but once I was ready, I was 100% focused.
After my first show, the Phoenix Europa, I was hooked! I loved the journey getting to that stage and that moment was worth every early morning workout, every self doubting moment, and every ounce of sweet potatoes (which is a lot of sweet potatoes!) My next goal from there was to chase that Pro Card! I competed in 3 more shows after that. With amazing support of coaches that called me out when needed and kept me in line, as well as a husband who supported me whole-heartedly, I GOT IT at USA Nationals in Vegas this last July!
It's an amazing feeling to eat sleep and breathe something, and be able to achieve it. I look forward to helping others be inspired to do the same. Fitness is more than a goal, it's a lifestyle.
My other addiction besides fitness and of course chocolate, is styling. I do hair and makeup at a salon in Mesa, AZ. It is the best feeling at the end of the day when you helped someone feel better about themselves in some way. I have the love of a swollmate that shares my passion for a healthy lifestyle and we have two furry babies that we adore. It's an honor to apart of Team ON, the greatest team in the world!
