I am a USMC spouse with a love for staying busy! I have lived coast to coast and I love to travel. Not being one to sit around & let my husband have all the fun, I’ve turned this somewhat nomadic lifestyle into an opportunity to connect with people across the country. Through personal training, cosmetology, and competing as an NPC Bikini Competitor (sounds a little crazy I know, but somehow it all flows together!) I have found a fitness family that shares the same passions as me 🙂
Over the past 3 years or so I have worked very hard to forge my way into the Fitness Industry. I am very proud to say that I am a Dymatize Nutrition sponsored athlete and am an Ambassador for Reebok and FitMark bags (2 of my biggest goals I set for myself). I have also been published in national magazines, (photos and writing), and landed my first cover in December!
With competing I had my best year thus far last year, placing 2nd at the Arnold Amateur and 4th at Jr Nationals in June. I hope this year to continue to improve and continue living a healthy active lifestyle.
I have always played sports, but after college I became more involved in weight training and discovered how to truly eat healthy. Over the past few years I have really transformed my my lifestyle and physique.
I have been very blessed to have had many positive and encouraging mentors throughout this journey. I am a very determined and hardworking person, but the support from my family, friends, and mentors has been invaluable in my successes (and breakthroughs during more challenging times).
Being an athlete I will always love sports of any form. I love the challenge, the comradary, and competition. Overall fitness has enriched my life in so many ways- I can’t imagine my life without it.
My goals are constantly evolving as I continue in this industry. Overall, my goal is to continue to learn, grow, and evolve with each phase of my career/ life. Specifically:
-I hope to cheer for the Cincinnati BenGals this year
-Continue my writing- I would love to have my own column!
-Grow as a fitness model.
-Earn my Pro Card in Bikini.
-Travel! This Industry has given me the chance to travel throughout the US, and I plan to continue traveling and connecting with people all over:)
The way it makes me feel! I feel healthy, strong, and confident when I’m maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When I feel this way everything else in my life is more positive.
