I am a NPC nationally qualified women’s physique competitor, certified personal trainer, and best of all mom to one beautiful little girl!
I had always been into fitness but about six years ago I went through some major life problems. My daughters father was abusive and due to the stress my thyroid died out completely. I gained so much weight! Finally figuring all this out I got on medications and got things straightened out. Along with that my parents divorced after thirty-two years. My mother was blindsided by this and came to live with me. Stuck in the middle of them, my daughters father in jail for felony assault on me and being a single mom for the first time was extremely overwhelming. No money, no job I started cleaning houses. Found a business that I would clean for part time and then ended up working my way up to managing the store!! Crazy right!? At this time I started walking and doing little exercises at home. Which then turned into beachbody programs and running 5ks!
Fast forward a couple years, still a single mom, I thought I found a great guy and had a family again. WRONG! Well regardless of the cheating, lying, and other horrible treatment from this man I put my heart and souls into fitness!
In the last three years I’ve taken myself off medications, lost well over one hundred pounds, became a personal trainer, and NPC competitor! Currently ranked number 8 nationally, hoping for that pro card this 2017 competition season!
Regardless of a pro card I do hands down love helping people! I am not trying to be a millionaire, people even clients tell me charge more…that’s bad right!?
There’s this amazing feeling I get in seeing others succeed. I am a very honest and straightforward person. I tell people what they need to hear(in a good way) not what they want to hear. I’m fun, silly and kind. Please don’t take my kindness for weakness !??
I have a great following…all positive NO DRAMA. I am who I am because of the things I’ve been through and honestly as hard as it all was I wouldn’t change it.
I feel very strongly about a fit life because Its help me not only physically but mentally! I have been called a rare breed and for my loyalty and generous nature. I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, and that’s ok… I love to lift, love and laugh! The gym is my life!
