THE CLOSE UP
One Thing On My Bucket Is…Compete at APEX in November, get my masters degree, beat the competitor I was during my first show in April!
Something That Either No One Knows, Or Would
Be Surprised To Find Out Is…I graduated high
school in three years and went to ISU to study
special education. While in high school I struggled big time with anxiety and depression. I was bullied and it took its toll on me.
Words To Live By Or Personal Motto: Your biggest competitor is yourself. Each day, wake up and focus on being better than the person you were before. Block out anyone else. Don’t worry about what others are doing or saying. Focus on bettering yourself for the purpose of proving yourself to yourself. At the end of the day the only person that needs to be happy is you. So feel your soul by doing things that make you happy each day.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?
Moving forward, I am working towards building my confidence. While on stage it may seem as though I am confident in myself. I have more moments of doubt than anyone would know. Through being a teacher, personal trainer and competitor I want to continue to increase my knowledge in all of those areas and truly build my confidence up for all of these different roles. I would also like to get my masters degree for special education and work towards getting certified to be a nutritionist. Lastly, I want to adjust my prep so that I can come back unrecognizable and even strong than before!

“Live every day like it’s your last.”
“Seeing myself in a magazine, let alone on the COVER of a magazine, is absolutely surreal to me! Never in my life did I anticipate seeing myself in this way! Competing had been a dream of mine, so I am so glad I allowed myself to get out of my comfort zone and even more glad that it was with the IPL!”

“As a lifelong drug-free athlete, I am so honored to be featured on the cover of Natural Bikini Magazine! After finding out that I was expecting twins, I wasn’t sure if I would feel confident enough to ever compete again. However, if you are willing to put in the HARD WORK (along with God’s strength & guidance) I believe that anything is possible!”
“I think just to keep doing it and continue to step out of my comfort zone. I’m a firm believer that age shouldn’t stop you from living out your dreams. It’s so much fun.”
“Self-confidence and loving yourself in every stage of life is so powerful.”
