I’m a 32-year-old Texan and fitness is my life. Being fit and living a healthy lifestyle is what I know and what I love. I’m an athlete in every sense of the word. I’m a certified personal trainer, NPC bikini competitor, fashion/fitness model and sponsored athlete. To say that the gym is my favorite pastime would be an understatement!

Read more and find out how I got to where I am today and where I’m headed tomorrow.

Although I’ve always loved being active, staying fit and eating healthy wasn’t always as important in my life as it is now. I was always the tall, skinny blond girl who ate anything and wouldn’t gain a pound. Then I went to college and it all changed. Freshman 15? Try Freshman 25! Things had to change…and quick!

During my sophomore year at the University of South Florida I began working for a fitness company and got my personal training certification. I worked out religiously over the next three years and had a great physique to show for it. When it was time to enter the real world things changed. I started teaching kindergarten and the gym and eating healthy were put on the back burner while I tried to excel in my new career path. Three and a half years ago I decided to make the leap into a full-blown lifestyle change and haven’t looked back since. I love the way a long run and intense lifting session makes me feel.

It wasn’t until 2010 that I decided to make my passion into my career. Being healthy and being in good shape just wasn’t enough anymore. My desire to motivate and inspire others became stronger and I knew I had to do something with it. I’ve worked hard and feel lucky to have worked with some of the best athletes, photographers, and fitness companies in the industry.

With the year in full swing my goals are long and lengthy. There’s no slowing down. Continue to check my site to see what I’m up to and where I’ll be next!
