SELF-DESCRIPTION OF PERSONALITY?
I am very personable, and outgoing, and I have a little sense of humor LOL. I’m very caring and nurturing.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CONTEST LIKE?
My first contest was very exciting, being in gymnastics all of my life, I love competing on stage and in front of an audience. I knew when I won my first show, that I would like to continue with bodybuilding. I have the video from my first show, how funny to see me back then at a 114lbs my first contest weight!
DESCRIBE YOUR LAST CONTEST EXPERIENCE?
My last contest experience was very exciting, it was the Arnold Classic and what an honor just to be on that stage! What a dream come true!
WHAT ARE YOUR COMPETITIVE GOALS? WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO GET INTO BODYBUILDING? WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST OBSTACLE TO SUCCESS?
My competitive goals is to continue competing and be on the Olympia Stage again and to do the Arnold Classic again in 2011. My motivation for bodybuilding is when I became Anorexic in high school. Bodybuilding had saved my life. I admired Rachel Mclish, and Cory Eversons body. I thought to myself, they look so feminine even with muscles. I had the muscular genetics anyways being in gymnastics, so I just followed through with it. My biggest obstacle to success is to have more exposure for myself and for women’s bodybuilding. Another obstacle is having a strong mind, I believe if you think positive and put your mind to anything, you can succeed at anything.
WHAT’S YOUR POSITION ON WOMEN & MUSCLES?
I love it!! It shows Strength, Confidence, Power, and overall just being Sexy! It shows that women with muscles work very hard and are very dedicated to achieve their bodies.
