IFPA/NGA Bikini Pro & Personal Trainer
As an IFPA & NGA bikini pro, nurse practitioner, nursing professor and owner of Grit Health & Fitness; it's safe to say that health and fitness are my biggest passions! Nothing means more to me than helping others and sharing in their success. I am a firm believer that everyone deserves to be happy in their own skin :)
I started competing after looking for another avenue to fuel my competitive fire. I have always been an athlete and truly enjoy all sporting events. What intrigues me most about competing in the fitness world is that it's really a competition against yourself! It takes commitment and drive to continue to push to better your own personal best! I earned my pro status in 2012 and won my pro debut in 2013 at the NGA Universe. I have also served as a judge at a few IFPA pro qualifying shows and will continue to dive into the judging world with at least two competitions on schedule for 2014!
I would love to hear your story and answer any questions that you have! :)
