How Did You Get Started?

I have always been athletic, in high school I played some volleyball, basketball, track, and weight lifted with my cousin Jamey. I also continued to run in races after, ranging from multiple 5K's, 10k's, obstacle runs, few half-marathons, and two full marathons.

At 18 I joined the U.S. Navy and went overseas, where I started getting serious about lifting as it helped me pass the time and relieve stress. I continued to lift when I came back to the states and people started to ask me in the gym if I was training for something. After a few people told me I should consider competing, I decided to look into it.

I got into contact with my personal trainer, Sandy Wiedmeyer, and started training for the Fords Gym 2011 Wisconsin Natural Bodybuilding, Fit Body & Figure Championships in Madison, WI (April 16, 2011) where I placed 1st in Figure Tall. I then competed in the 2011 NGA Heart of America Natural Classic (May 7, 2011) but did not place.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love the results I see from it and the energy it gives you for the rest of the day. It is also something that both my husband and I enjoy doing together.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

I am motivated by the 60 year old ladies and men that are passing me in running races. They have followed a healthy life style all their life and in return, age hasn't slowed them down, they still are able to do what they love.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

I wanted the feeling you get when you know you can achieve anything you put your mind to.
