BIO: I have been a competitive athlete throughout my life. When I finished college, I was looking to keep my competitive drive going. A little while afer college, I was introduced by a friend to try bikini competitions. From an athletic perspective, I was a little skeptical, but after much research, I did my first show back in 2013. Unsure of what to expect entering this new fitness realm, I ended up winning my first show. And from there I was hooked, turning Pro in 2014 and have continued competing for more than 2 years.
Being a NGA Pro Bikini competitor, I've learned alot about myself. I have always had my competitive side which has helped me physically, but I have learned that to achieve progress you must also be "mentally fit". The challange for myself, when I was feeling weak, was to rely on my faith. When I was mentally and physically drained that's when I needed my God to help me with that extra rep or help restrain me from pizza!
Being a competitor has also humbled me in more ways than one. As a bikini competitor, I have realized it is more than just a pretty face, make-up, and heels; in fact, it is hard work! Bikini competitiors work hard to achieve their physique if not more in comparison to other female categories.
Recently, I work as a volunteer nutrition educator for a local school district. I teach and educate kids how to eat healthy and be physically fit. However my future endeavours would be to receive my CPT and work with young girls. I hope to be a positive role model encouraging them with positive body images and healthy eating.
