Background

I have had over 15 years experience in fitness and health related activities. I fell in love with weight training and bodybuilding when a friend showed me a picture of Rachel McLish, Lenda Murray, Monica Brant and Susie Currie. I thought WOW!! They are all very muscular but still very feminine and beautiful. I've been working out ever since.

During my University years, however, I picked up very bad habits... smoking, drinking, anorexia. Although I enjoyed working out... eating well and living a healthy lifestyle were not my priorities. It took several years to understand the value of a healthy lifestyle... it's an every day struggle.

I became interested in competing 3 years ago but never really had the courage or enough knowledge to know what the industry would offer me. When I first saw a picture of Maggie Diubaldo on the cover of an Oxygen magazine, it was then that I knew... that's what I want... an athletic, fit body; toned, muscular physique and a smile that breaks all barriers!!

I competed for a regional event held by a World Natural Sports Organization sponsored event FAME and placed in the top 10. I am presently preparing to compete for more FAME events with the hopes of making it Pro by the end of 2006.

I am Filipina with a Bachelor's in Nursing. I specialize in the field of community health promotion and disease prevention. I work as an educator/researcher for a local health authority and am presently pursuing a career in Freelance Writing for fitness and health magazines.
