Why did you get into fitness and or modeling? Fitness was a natural transition for me after many years of being a competitive athlete. I played Volleyball, Basketball and Tennis in High-school and went to College on a Tennis Scholarship. I always loved working out in the gym to improve my athletic abilities. Once I put down the tennis rackets I spent more time in the gym and started taking up some gymnastics training. People started to see me training so hard in the gym and began to suggest I should compete. I thought it sounded like alot of fun so I decided to compete in my first fitness show. Many competitions and injuries later, I switched to the Figure Category where I recieved my Pro Card in August 2003.
Where do you see yourself in five years? In five years am sure I will still be involved with both the Fitness and Physical Therapy industries. I plan to have my first book written and published by then. I will probably still reside in Southern California, although you never know where life will take you!! Hopefully I will have met Mr. Right and be settled down with starting a family..
Tell me what contests, magazines etc. that you’ve been in? I have been in Ms. Fitness, Ironman, and NPC news magazines etc.. I recieved my Pro Card at Team Universe Nationals in New York, August 2003. I competed in my first two Pro Shows this year, the Cal and the New York. I am currently getting ready for a full year of competition in 2005

I have a few more cheat days during the off-season of course and a bit more carbs. I eat loads of vegies (all kinds), lots of fish, chicken, and egg-whites.
