I am an NPC Fitness athlete. I began competing in 2002 in Fitness and have competed in figure and bikini/model divisions over the past 10 years. I got interested in the Fitness division after seeing the likes of Susie Curry and Kelly Ryan on stage and I was determined to perform a routine and look the way they did…it was extremely hard due to the fact I had no background in gymnastics or dance. I had to teach myself everything and had virtually no idea what I was doing! Ten years later, I am so incredibly proud of my accomplishments and the things I can do just out of perserverance and refusing to quit when it got hard. Above all, the pride from doing that is worth all the sweat and frustration over the years.
I have competed in the NPC as well as in Fitness America. My most recent show placings are:
2011 NPC Eastern USAs – 1st Place/Fitness
2010 NPC Atlantic States – 2nd Place/Fitness
My next show I am preparing to do is the 2012 NPC Team Universe/National Fitness Championships in July.
