BIO: I'm a mom of a 21 year old daughter and an 18 year old son, and Mimi to my 2 year old grandson Kason. I have one of the best support people/cheerleaders ever in my boyfriend David Jones, who also happens to be the announcer for several NGA shows.

I do my best to take care of myself and show others that being healthy and working out is so important for both physical and mental health. I have met so many amazing people through this sport and made so many new friends at shows.

I love being involved in shows in all aspects, not just competing. When I'm not actually in the competition, I've done everything from help expedite, to sell tickets, to actually even getting to learn and help in the spray tanning process. However, more often than not, I'm serving as the trophy girl, and getting to hand out trophies on stage to my friends is a great feeling.
