January 10, 2015 Issue. Shot with Shannon Munn on the weekend of the NPC Southeastern USA. It was a day loaded with back to back shoots and her look is such that I wish I had more time to shoot with her than the two hours we invested. I know we can look forward to many more varied looks and posing styles that will accentuate her lines and personality to the pleasure of her fans.

Please share something of your background and how it relates to your current interest in fitness and modeling.

As a child, my parents always encouraged me to be active in sports. I played in organized soccer and softball leagues from an early age and I was often in the top placing in physical education competitions in junior high and high school classes. I've always had a competitive spirit but have thrived as a team member and leader. As a heavy early twenty something, I found myself wanting to be leaner and healthier. I joined weight watchers, learned how to eat and found the gym in the process. The rest is history!

Share with us a bit about your contest history and most memorable show experience.

I've competed now in both figure and bikini, and love different parts of each of the divisions. I strive for the physical ideal of figure and the appreciation for the advanced muscularity of it, but I love the spirit, posing, and stage presence necessary to be successful in bikini! Finding out after my very first bikini show, Southeastern States that I had nationally qualified was an ecstatic surprise.

What motivates and or inspires you to workout, diet and compete in fitness? Which part do you have the most difficulty with?

I've been told by more than a few people that they admire my discipline. In the most simplistic terms, I love lifting and I'm great at working towards a goal. The hardest thing about the lifestyle is maintaining healthy relationships with loved ones who are not in the industry (cont. pg. 6).
