How did you get interested in
After I had broken my back as a teenager I enjoyed the lifting part of rehab. While in a gym, a trainer approached me to tell me I had the 'right frame' for it. I listened to his advice and became instantly addicted. I love to be a strong woman...
What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?
Very confusing but not very nervous. I remember feeling like I had no idea what the heck I was doing, and that everyone else knew what to do. I just strutted my stuff the best I could. I placed 4th and was very excited. I couldn't wait for the next one.
What do you like and dislike about competing?
I love the preparation process,the lifting, tanning, makeup, hair, nails, the way all your friends and fans wish you luck and 'root' for you. It's exciting. I also love the friendships that develop backstage. For the most part all us girls stick together pinning a suit here, glueing a butt there and lending hairspray. I guess the worst part of it is the dehydration and tanning. Its long and strenuous and smells bad.
What are your future goals in this industry?
I hope to keep going, gaining knowledge that can help me grow along the way. I just like to improve something with every show and every season. I would eventually like to compete on the pro circuit right up there next to my idols.
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
I hope to stay a personal trainer part time while working in the field I went to school for , Environmental science. I would hope to have had a couple of children and to lead a very healthy lifestyle traveling and experiencing all life has to offer.
Please tell us something special about you that most people

mall, the convienence store, hairdresser. EVERYWHERE. Its cheap on gas

Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?
I would love to thank the man who got me 'into' this, Rob. Also to all
the great people who have supported me through all of this. Jon, you
are the best! Mom, Dad and the rest of my family who think I am a winner
no matter what placing and to all my coworkers who put up with my stinky
food and dieting mood swings.
