I am a wife, mother of two girls, an IFBB figure pro and an ISSA certified sports nutrition specialist. I was ranked in the top 10 Nationally in both figure and bikini in 2011. I love both, but figure is more suited for me. I specialize in all areas of sports nutrition including contest prep, plans for weight loss and muscle building, as well as posing coaching for figure and bikini. Whether you are getting ready for a contest or photo shoot, or just want to get in shape, I can help you achieve your goals.
I have worked out on and off my whole life. My mom taught aerobics, so I took her classes as a kid. I started lifting in high school. I did go through periods when I didn't work out at all, I was naturally thin when I was younger.
I had my first daughter at 25 and during that pregnancy I thought I could just eat whatever I wanted, since that was pretty much what I did before anyway. That was not the case! I ended up gaining 60-70 pounds and after I had the baby I was just really fat.
It took me a whole year to get that much weight off just dieting, I didn't start a work-out routine until my daughter was about nine months when I finally went to the gym and signed my daughter up at the gym's daycare. It was fantastic! I didn't know what I was missing, 2 hours of time all to myself, and the daycare was so inexpensive. I was hooked! I began getting in better and better shape and then started competing in figure by the time my first daughter was a year and a half in 2007.
