What started off as checking something off of my bucket list, has resulted in 7 consecutive years on the Figure competition circuit. I love the ever-changing process of both physical and metal growth in the sport. It has taught me more about myself that any other experience in my life.
I am currently the Manager of an LA Fitness but have worked as a personal trainer, fitness and competition coach, posing coach and nutritionist. Before I was involved in the fitness industry, I worked as a dolphin and marine mammal trainer. I have been married for 15 years and have the most amazing kids a mom could ask for. One boy and one girl who constantly keep me on my toes!
As I look back on the experiences who have made me into the woman I am today, I think of the day I packed up my car and moved across the country to chase my dream career of working with dolphins. I am so greatfull for the courage to make the journey and begin a new chapter. It was a time of tremendous personal growth and opened so many doors for my future.
In the fitness industry I have continually made strides toward my goal of earning a Pro Card. My best finishes to date are 7th at USAs and 13th at North Americans. As a 44 year old mother I am pleased with that but will continue to work toward self improvement.
