How Did You Get Started?

I know every competitor says this, but growing up I was active and athletic. I was in gymnastics, swim team, & cheerleading. I got my first gym membership for my 15th birthday and about my junior year in high school I wanted to get a personal trainer and started seriously lifting everyday. After high school I was looking for something to do that would incorporate my gymnastics/dance/cheerleading and weight lifting. At the time fitness pro Nicole Hobbs worked as a trainer at my gym and I told my trainer I want to look like her! I began to look into the fitness competitions and I knew it was for me! so I got started at the age of 17 lifting and working with my choreographer for my first show.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I have been working on more size for my upper body which I use heavier weight and 12, 10, 8 reps. For my lower body, which genetically I have very muscular legs, I have to use light weight and high reps anywhere between 25-50 reps!

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Pharmalogic ProHGHsport.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I have learned so much about myself because of fitness. Competing in fitness I have learned how to set goals not only for competing but also for life in general. I have learned how to challenge and push myself when I feel like the easiest thing to do is give up. So I guess I can say I love fitness beacause it challenges me to be the best person I can be everyday.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

My dream and goal is to earn my pro card as a fitness competitor and sign a contract with a supplement company.
