I am wife, mother of 2 teenagers and IFBB Women’s Physique Pro, and fitness model. I have always had a love and passion for fitness, a healthy lifestyle and lifting. As a child, I grew up with a mother who emphasized the importance of good clean eating habits and exercise, as she was an aerobics instructor.
My brother introduced me to weight lifting and I was instantly hooked. I have always been a fan of bodybuilding ever since I can remember, my brother is the one who ignited my love. He had posters plastered all over our basement walls. I competed for the first time in 1989.
After a few years competing, I got married and life took over with 2 kids. I maintained my eating habits and worked out regularly.
I returned to the stage in 2011 in figure. While it was a great come back, figure wasn’t quite me. In 2012 I moved to physique. I was home again. My love of bodybuilding, of the atheistic physique, the hard work, discipline, sacrifice and dedication that is required is what drives me to improve myself.
My goal is to inspire, encourage, and guide others not necessarily to compete but to live a healthy full life. It doesn’t matter your age, race, male or female...I want to touch and empower as many as I can. I am so excited to make my Pro debut next year and be among so many athletes who I admire.

The sport for me embodies not only the outer physical appearance of strength, commitment and hard work but also how it affects our soul. It breeds confidence, courage, empowers our soul, strengthens our spirit. We fail, we learn, we grow, we become better with each achievement (even if there is not trophy). It is becoming the best YOU, meeting and connecting with others who share the same goals, have the same passion and are on a similar journey, and inspiring others along the way.
Bodybuilding has given me so much, it is my time to give back
