When did you get started in training and living a fit lifestyle?

I have always been active my entire life; From karate, motocross to dance I’ve always been involved in some sport but it wasn’t until I got engaged and was prepping for my wedding day that I really got involved into fitness. I had a friend that was a trainer who I hired to whip me into the best shape of my life. I had no clue about nutrition 7 years ago, I ate pretty much anything I wanted to and lived on pizza and coffee (I still do enjoy these things but not every day lol) When he gave me a meal plan and taught me about what foods to eat to fuel my body I was blown away. I had more energy than before I learned what foods were good for me and what foods I had thought were so called low cal

I started to lift regularly and feel in love with the process of seeing my body change before my eyes. I was hooked! In the first year of marriage I did three fitness shows lol now there’s a test on the marriage haha !

You recently placed Top 5 at the WBFF Worlds this year, how amazing was it being on stage at the Worlds?

I can’t tell you how much I’m still over the moon happy about my placing at worlds! It was an incredible line up of women! As always the WBFF stage was top notch! Hosting at the Bellagio it was a beautiful location and 4 days of getting super glamorous! I found out after the show was done and they posted the official standings I actually ended up coming in 4th ! I’m so excited to start training for the LA pro show my plans are to get that crown.

Are you still planning to compete again in the future?

Most defiantly! I’m going to be doing the WBFF LA Pro show in April 2019, I can’t wait!

What is the most challenging thing about being a fitness model?

I think for me one of the hardest things is feeling like- “Am I not lean enough? Am I too fluffy?” That sometimes self-doubt that everyone has at times but is amplified if I have an upcoming shoot. Again something that I continually work on.

Do you listen to music while you train?
