I was born, raised, and still resides in South Florida. I have been active my whole life playing sports, dance, and martial arts. I started going to the gym at 17 years old when I was a senior in high school just to keep the focus on “looking good”. Now at 25 years old, it has become so much more than that to me. It has become more than just the aesthetics side of it, but also the mental strength I have gained from it. Confidence was always an issue for me but through the sport of bodybuilding, it has helped me grow into the strong and fearless woman I am today. I competed in NPC bikini division in March of 2015 for my first time. I have taken time since then to focus on building more muscle and finding a balance in life with my relationship with food, being in the gym, and being able to be social with friends and family. Taking that time off from being in prep and onstage has made me realize that I am ready to take the stage on again and will be doing so in April of 2017. I tend to keep an optimistic outlook on life and surround myself with those that are driven towards their goals. I went to college for marketing and was going to take that into the fashion industry. I am now a certified EMT, is currently in school for paramedics, and will be joining the fire academy afterwards. After getting hired as a paramedic-firefighter, I want to go back to school to get a degree in nutrition. There is no greater feeling in the world to me than to help people, whether it is to motivate them or to just make them feel good.
