How Did You Get Started?

I started competing at the end of 2007 after being around many friends who were involved in the sport. It was pretty amazing to see their dedication and how their body was transformed so drastically within the months leading up to their show. After watching a show, I was hooked, from that point on I knew it was something I wanted to do.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I have always loved fitness. I love being active and on the go. I can always turn my day around by going to the gym. In school I was a cheerleader, ran track and took dance for many years. I coach competition cheerleading, this is my 7th year. I love the competition side of any sport. The way competing makes you feel is like no other.

The way being healthy makes me feel is motivation enough. I feel so much better after a good workout and always feel more energized and alert when I eat healthy vs. eating junk food.
