IFBB Bikini Pro & Certified Health Coach
I am an IFBB Bikini Pro, Fitness Model, Personal Trainer, and Certified Health Coach. I Graduated college with a Bachelors Degree in Business Management and first started competing in July, 2011 where I placed 1st in my first two shows. I fell in love with competing and training hard, and not only made it a hobby, but a lifestyle. Staying fit and being healthy has changed my life. It was my goal to obtain my Pro card in 2014 and I did it! I hope to be an inspiration to others.
I am a woman who encourages others to go where God leads them. To be who you are and not what others want you to be. Most of my life I was told that I wasn't smart enough, strong enough or good enough. I allowed others to walk over me, talk over me, and not be taken seriously. I finally got to the point in my life where I said enough is enough. I not on surpassed all others expectations but even surprised myself, and I'm not done yet.
I was told I wasn't smart enough or others assumed because I modeled as a teen that I was automatically a ditz....yet I went on to achieve a 3.8 GPA and received my Bachelors Degree, graduated with Honors.
I met my husband young and was told we wouldn't last, yet we have been happily married for 18 years with two absolutely amazing kids.
Went from being a supervisor to a Director at my place of employment in less than 4 years. I started my own business in Health and Life Coaching.
I had so many health problems, some of which my doctors said "you are just going to have to suffer with this the rest of you life, there's nothing we can do". I told the doctor "no, that's not a good enough answer, I wont accept that for my life." I decided "fine" I will just become my own doctor. I have found remedies for myself, and 16 of the 18 health issues I have had in my life are GONE!!! I was told I was too thin...so i gained muscle mass and now compete on a National level in Bikini Bodybuilding.
God has put me through so much in my life to build me and make me the strong woman that I am. I'm stronger than ever, emotionally and physically. Be you, don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise. If you are knocked down, get up and prove them wrong.
