San Diego, CA
I first became
a model when I was 14 years old after being discovered in a shopping mall in Illinois
during a runway competition. I enjoyed modeling so much I decided to make it a
career. The more I got into it, the more I realized how important it was to take
care of your body and health. I delved into learning as much as I could about
how to create a healthy and fit body. Since I have always been into playing sports,
fitness modeling was a natural choice for me.
I was born
and raised on a farm and ranch. I love farm life! After college at Fort Hays University
and Colby College, I got certified through ISSA to be a Personal Trainer. I then
moved on to Baltimore, MD. It was there I began personal training at a gym and
teaching spinning, abs, and stretching classes. I have always loved eating right
and working out, and now I was able to help people get into it. Then I did my
first Figure competition, and fitness modeling just fell in with that. I was first
published in March of 2003 Oxygen Magazine. I was psyched!
I started working out at the local gym to lose weight, but
quickly became interested in bodybuilding. I've competed 3 times, and progressed
to fitness modeling this year, when I was approached by a photographer. It feels
great to be appreciated for the way my hard work and dedication has paid off.
My biggest accomplishment was getting on stage for my first figure competition
and placing second. Finding something that I finally love and can really focus
my energy on has been very rewarding.
