was born and raised in the Bay Area,
near San Jose, California. Recently, I
moved to Malibu to attend Pepperdine University, where I am majoring
in organizational communications.
My passion for fitness began when I was
a young girl, competing in gymnastics
tournaments. Throughout my life, I have
participated in a number of athletic activities that have allowed to me to grow
and mature into the woman I am today. I
played competitive fast-pitch softball for
six years, and then I took up cheerleading
and also continued gymnastics.
I competed in my first NPC open bikini
competition when I was eighteen years
old, and I have competed in six more since
then. Most recently, I was awarded the title National Teen Bikini Champion at the
teen, collegiate, and masters championships in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 2014.
I am grateful for the support of my supplement advisor, Anthony Avellino, at Nutrishop San Jose and my coach, Michelle
Brown. I appreciate all they have done to
help me get to where I am today.
