I was actually born in Taipei, my father was in the Army. I pretty much grew up in Georgia living in Atlanta and Columbus, and spending summers in Hilton Head SC with my grandparents. I attended a private school where I was a cheerleader and was on the track team running the mile. After I graduated from High School I attended Auburn University where I actually started weight training and a little modeling; doing some swimsuit contests and commercial work. After my graduation from Auburn University with a degree in Business Management, I really started getting into fitness contests and modeling. I also got a REAL job working as a Business Analyst.
I have competed in several contests including the Hawaiian Tropic, Galaxy and several NPC shows. I also enjoy fitness spokesmodeling, working for companies like Met-Rx, Worldwide, AST, Ecplise and GNC (Physical Mag). I also enjoy traveling. I have been all over the world, France, Japan, England, China and all over the US. I would have to say Hawaii is my favorite place to visit!!! I also enjoy meeting others, so please feel free to write

I eat alot of good quality protein from egg whites, chicken, lean turkey and mavrick beef. I also rely on good complex carbs from oatmeal, brown rice and potatoes. I do not cut out my carbs but I do cycle them having two day low carbs and then high carb day once a week and a high fat day once a week. Playing with my carbs really seems to get me lean.
