My Story

Although I had always been active and somewhat health conscious, my fitness journey didn’t truly begin until 2015.

Donny and I had been working out together for a while, when I decided that I wanted to step out of my comfort zone, and do something challenging so I could look and feel my best for my 40th birthday!

Since I was making great progress in the gym, and I really enjoyed working out, Donny suggested that I train for a bodybuilding competition.

At first I thought he was crazy because all I could imagine was overly muscular women that look like men! That’s not what I had in mind at all! After a little more COAXING and learning that female bodybuilding is not the “man-woman” that I pictured in my head, but it was about graceful, athletic bodies with a runway flare.

This was definitely something that if I wanted to do I would have to step outside of my comfort zone.

 

With Donny’s motivation and support I began to train with a purpose for a competition that just so happened to be ON MY 40th Birthday.

And guess what? Not only did I place in my first competition, I beat women half my age, and I found a confidence that made me believe I could accomplish anything.

In 2016 a week after my last competition my dad was hospitalized and passed a month later. That was the catalyst that knocked me off of my path, it was one that took me down a road I didn’t recognize. It took only a few short years and several dress sizes before I realized how far off my path I had strayed. In 2022 I started to put the pieces back together and I slowly began the journey back to myself.

 

After rediscovering my confidence and motivation, I am currently training for my next bikini bodybuilding competition in 2024.

My journey has now inspired me to motivate and encourage women just like me. As an online fitness and nutrition coach I am able help others navigate their own path so they might discover the best version of themselves.
