BIO: As a mother of two boys, my children look to me as their primary female role model, which is a responsibility I take very seriously. I want my sons to see the power of a female who prioritizes her health in the hopes that they will someday choose a wife with similar values. Working in the industry that I do, I see firsthand what can happen to families who deal with poor health through poor choices; low self-esteem, negativity, blame, neglect, and avoidable expenses can easily arise out of preventable illness, and I of course do not want my children living in that kind of environment at any point in their lives.
I believe that people deserve to see their bodies perform at the highest possible level, as the human body is a machine that is designed to be healthy and strong. I am very passionate at fueling my body through whole foods for ultimate nutrition and absorption, which unfortunately can take a backseat to supplementation, processed/artificial foods and flavors, cleanses, and meal replacements. Participating in bodybuilding has given me a public avenue to inspire many others in my various networks, which for me is the best part!
I am very thankful for the NGA specifically, as this organization provides an outlet for natural athletes who wish to participate in bodybuilding events that focus on health and fitness, not cosmetic appeal, politics, or sexuality. For these reasons specifically, I chose to become an NGA athlete. I very much look forward to competing at the Pro level in mid-2015.
