Please share a bit of your background and how you see it relating to your current success in fitness and modeling.

I am 22 years old and have been competing in bikini for two years now. I have always been athletic growing up. I did competitive cheerleading, track and swimming growing up and fell in love with weightlifting freshman year in college. I am a strong-willed person and don’t give anything less than 100% in everything that I do. When I set a goal for myself, it’s not about if I will get there, it’s when. I have big dreams in the fitness industry and I am willing to put in the work and dedication to get there.

Of all the clothing and modeling/acting opportunities you could land what would be your favorite role and what would you wear?

I would love to represent a company that is focused on loving themselves and inspires other men/women to reach their fitness goals. I would be great for a clothing company that has a meaning behind their brand and characterizes the fitness industry as a family that supports others and is dedicated to health and fitness.

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

My first bikini competition was Mid Florida Classic in 2014. It was an amazing experience! I had no idea how much I would love competing until I stepped on stage and had the time of my life! The adrenaline you get when you first walk on stage is like no other feeling. I knew right after the show that I wanted to improve my physique and bring a whole different package for my next competition.

My most recent competition was Orlando Europa in 2015 where I competed in Bikini Class B and got first call outs in Open. I ended up placing 6th out of a stacked class beautiful girls. This show was close to my heart because I came to Europa in 2014 to watch my best friend compete in bikini. I immediately fell in love with the sport; little did I know that I would be competing there a year later.

I was more than happy with the package that I brought to the Europa stage; however I am bringing something completely different to my next show. I plan to compete at Tim Gardner Extravaganza in August of 2015 (cont. pg 22).
