How Did You Get Started?

I began weight training several years ago and decided to take it to the next level and train for a competition. I began training for the show in January 2002, won the show in September 2002, and here I am!

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I train using AST's MaxOT program which is based on heavy weight, low reps, or overloading the muscle. This type of program forces your muscle to respond and grow. I train each body part once per week, but depending on the routine, may add in a second training session of abs.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I exclusively use AST Sports Science high quality products. The key to my gains has been their NyTro Pro 40 meal replacements and VP2 protein powder -- protein, protein, protein!! I also use their Glutamine GL3, Dymetadrine Xtreme and CLA for recovery, energy and fat loss.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Fitness is great because it has taught me to set goals, train hard and continually take my physique to a higher level.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I am currently training for 3 shows in 2003. The first being the Contra Costa and CAL shows in California and then the Team Universe this summer. I really want to encourage other women who want to compete to take the challenge and go for it! I'm here to give any advice or help that I can.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Consistency is key! Pick a program and stick to it. Define what you want out of your training, set goals, and take the steps to achieve them. It all starts with figuring out what YOU want and consistently working to achieve it!!

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

I have learned a ton from Skip La Cour ( and totally admire everything he stands for in bodybuilding. He is by far one of the most motivating and hard-working bodybuilders out there! I've also learned a lot from Jenny Lynn ( who has one of the best physiques out there!
