I’ve been in the fitness industry since 2001, where i competed in my first fiqure competition. Alot of people didn’t know that about me only seeing me in the bodybuilding scene. I competed in fiqure for five years, moving on to female bodybuilding in 2007.
My first show then was in 2008, at the state show, winning my class and the overall. That same year i went to the Junior USA’s placing 2nd and the Nationals placing 3rd. I continued in 2009 at the North Americans placing 3rd and and later that year 3rd at the Nationals. Going back and forth in my placing i then knew it was time to focus even harder on my training.
I trained harder and in 2010 went on to the North Americans again winning my class and over all,which earned me my Pro Card. I couldn’t of been any happier! Knowing that i had crossed that hurdle and was ready to go on to the Pro stage was the greatest feeling ever! Next was my Pro debut,which was in Tampa placing 5th. I was pleased with that being my first Pro show but wanted to do another one to at least qualify for the Olympia. So i prepared for the show in Hartford,placing 2nd! Well that did it, that qualified me for the O! Even more excited to be on stage my first year as a Pro, i placed 9th there.
I couldn’t of asked for a better year! With God, my family, my sponsor Species Nutrtion, friends and fans its been a wonderful journey! Thanks you guys for all of your support it means alot!
