I began my fitness journey in 2009 after looking through an Oxygen magazine one day & I decided I wanted to try and compete because I am always looking for a challenge within myself. With the support of my family & friends & the desire to succeed & the courage to follow my dreams I have achieved many things to be grateful for these past few years. I look forward to what the future will bring!
Training and competing have given me the ability to take negative energy & or stress and turn it to positive by focusing that energy on working harder to constantly improve my physical state as well as my mental state. I love the challenge of being an athlete and being the best that I can be – for me!
My goal is to spread my knowledge & passion of health & fitness to other women and show them that they to can achieve their dreams & aspirations just as I have, it’s never to late. You have the power to do great things, believing in yourself & having the support of others around you makes anything possible!
