How and when did you get involved into lifting weights?
I dreamt of being a professional figure athlete since I was a little girl. I had my mom to thank for that she was an aerobics queen and one of the first female bodybuilders of her time.
Was it a goal for you to compete in bodybuilding competitions right from the beginning or was it something that grew in your mind as time went on and you saw the progress in your body?
Go after your dreams, set goals, and challenge your fears! You can accomplish anything you set your mind to. I was just a child when I first dreamt of becoming a Professional Figure Athlete. Ever determined and never willing to give up on the dream and sport I loved, I sacrificed much, enduring times of challenge and hardship, in order to reach the pinnacle of the athletic world.

How often do you train in a week? Four to six days a week that varies depending on the program.

Which body part is your best in your opinion? Deltoids.
What is your favorite exercise in the gym and which one you don’t like so much? My favorite exercise is shoulder press and my least favorite exercise crunches.
Judging in Women’s Bodybuilding has always been criticised in one or the other way. Please tell me your honest thoughts about today’s judging in Women’s Bodybuilding. I think that women’s bodybuilding has come a long way. I think that the sport is well respected and young aspiring athletes view female bodybuilders as beautiful, strong, healthy athletes. Female bodybuilding is a sport where “strong is the new beautiful”.
Please tell me about what else you are doing when you don’t work out (profession, hobbies, etc.)oI enjoy golfing, shopping, hiking, travelling and exploring great coffee shops and restaurants.
What are your future plans for 2017/2018? I plan on competing in the Ben Weider Legacy Cup 2017, Popeyes Classic 2017 fitness category. Canadian Bodybuilding Federation figure 2018.
