I was born and raised in Arizona. I grew up playing sports, so I have always been involved with health and fitness. I ran track and played volleyball and softball. My family is extremely athletic so it was only natural for me to play as well.
I graduated from ASU in 2004 with a B.A. degree in Political Science and aspirations for law school. But during my years in college I became a certified personal trainer and my boyfriend and I opened up our own personal training studio in Mesa, AZ. I first became a trainer to help get me through college financially, but the business flourished and it became my life. I have always loved fitness but when I helped change the bodies and lives of so many women, I knew that was really where I wanted to focus my attention.
I entered my first figure competition in 2004 and I loved everything about it. I loved the lifestyle; I loved the mental toughness that I had gained as well as the ability to really transform my body with diet and exercise. From there, I competed in three more competitions and the last being my first national pro show in 2006 in Las Vegas. I took first place in my class and turned pro. I couldn’t believe that I had turned pro at my very first national show. That moment was truly a great moment in my life because I wasn’t expecting that at all. I didn’t set out to turn pro… I just really loved competing. Although getting my pro card was definitely icing on the cake.
Since turning pro my life has been a whirlwind.
- I have won FIVE pro shows, the most recent being the 2011 California Pro.
- Top 4 in the 2011 Figure International, top 5 Figure International 2009 and 2010
- Top 5 in the world at the 2010 Ms. Figure Olympia.
- I have been featured in Muscle and Fitness, Muscle and Fitness Hers, Oxygen and Flex Magazines. In 2008 I landed two covers….one for
Muscle and Fitness hers and one for the Flex swimsuit issue and my 3rd cover in 2009 for Flex magazine’s annual swimsuit issue.
