I am a 27 y.o., college student at Ball State Univ., working on a dietetics degree.. I have been lifting for 10 years, competing for 7 years. During those years I competed in bodybuilding off and on for five years and figure for 2 years.
Fitness Model, Competitor: Figure is much more suitable for me since I have a natural physique with lots of soft feminine curves. I love big muscles but I do not have the bulk and striations to do well at the national bodybuilding level of competition. In my heart, natural, healthy feminine muscles is what female bodybuilding and fitness should be about.
Career Highlights: I held my cross-country school record for 7 yrs. along with receiving MVP in track and cross-country for 3 yrs. I was the only one in the history of my school to do well at the regional level, along with making All-City, All-County, and All-Sectionals

Figure: March 2002 Hoosier Muscle Classic-Natl. Qualifier (1st); April 2002 Jr. USA (3rd); June 2002 Indianapolis show-Natl. Qualifier (1st and overall); July 2002 Midwestern-Natl. Qualifier (2nd)

Modeling: I've worked with various photographers including Gene Hwang, Mike Druskin, Gene Carangal, J.M. Manion, Joe Lobell, and Guido Marcovelli.. I am featured on alot of different websites.....do a search on my name and you will find out where I am on the web or check out my links page!
First Interest In Fitness/Bodybuilding: I was a skinny #90 runner my Soph. year in H.S. I hated looking that way and desperately wanted to have some curves. One advantage to being thin was the less a weighed the better runner you were.. My brother, Brad, who is a good amateur bodybuilder persuaded me to start wt. training. Within one month I had joined my local YMCA and I was hooked from then on out.
Goal Within The Fitness Industry: I would like to become a professional figure competitor. After turning pro. I would like to do guest appearances along with some modeling work for magazines, etc. This will also help me out with my future career as a dietition
