I am originally from Kingston Jamaica. My mom and I moved to America when I was 7. Lived in NYC until I was 13 then went to boarding school in Jamaica. At the age of 16 I weighed 285lbs. I decided I wanted to live a healthy life so I made a change. I moved back to NYC at 17 which I now weighed 125lbs. I was picked up by IMG models but decided to go to college on Basketball Scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh. After a torn ACL my Freshman year I ecided to end my career and focused on finishing school. I then when on to Med school but dropped out due to a passion in Fitness so instead I got my Masters in Exercise Science.
I have decided I would like to reach out to the masses and brand myself and away to do this is getting back into modelling. Plus I do miss it. So I decided to venture into Figure Competitions in 2011 so I can get into Fitness Modelling. I placed very well in Natural COmpetitions and earned my IFPA Pro Card and now I am going on to NPC to one day earn my IFBB Pro Card which I expect to get with the help of my new coach Kim Oddo.
