About MeI am an aspiring fitness model, power lifter and NPC Nationally ranked figure competitor! I began lifting weights when I was about 15 for a Goodrich High School’s Power Lifting team. From my very first competitive meet, I was absolutely hooked. The rush of testing the maximum potential of my complete strength was rewarding in every essence. I suppose you could say I was a bit of a tom boy, but from where I grew up, getting a little mud on the tires was nothing short of normal. Over the course of my training, I fostered a passion for the science of strength, muscular endurance and means of nutrition and continued heightening my interests through my trials of progression in the sports’ ADAU and USAPL sanctions. After earning state and national records in both divisions, I decided to hang my hat on the sport and try an entirely new challenge; The art of diet. I could produce high numbers during single presses and compound movements but I was always lacking the aesthetic “wow” factor of your prototypical “gym rat“. In late 2010, I made the personal commitment to compete in my first figure competition.
After weeks and weeks of vigorous research and preparation, I stepped on stage for the first time at NPC’s 2011 Grand Rapids National Qualifying Figure and Bodybuilding Champions where I went on to achieve first place in my height division and was presented with the Overall Figure Champion award for the entire show. Without taking a breath, I made my debut National appearance at NPC’s Jr. USAs and achieved Top 10 ranking. The feeling of being on stage is almost supernatural to me and I wasn’t ready to throw in the towel on the competitive season just yet. Still yearning to top my previous presentations, I committed to Michigan’s final state level national qualifier, NPC’s Western Michigan Championships where I was once again crowned the reigning Overall Figure Champion of the show. I was now the first female competitor awarded back-to-back Overall Figure Champion at the two biggest, most competitive National Qualifiers in Michigan at the age of 21. I never used age, environment or excuses as a crutch. I firmly believe that if there is a insatiable passion within yourself to reach a goal, the only possible limitation you truly have lies in the choice of attitude you characterize. Every day is an opportunity to define ourselves and emulate a legacy – I plan on further identifying myself as an inspiration to those seeking self-betterment, inside and outside of the competitive world. Committing yourself to a higher purpose, outlook or goal and in turn acquiring it is one of the most rewarding experiences we will ever experience. Rendering the notion that “impossible is nothing” is a wealth I tend to keep sharing, especially on my journey to my ultimate goal of becoming inducted into the IFBB Figure Pro ranks.
