Athletics and fitness have always been a huge part of my life. From a very young age, I was involved in tonnes of sports. Gymnastics, soccer, track and field … I loved it all! If it involved competition, I could be found at the center of it. Through it all though, gymnastics was always my passion. I was a competitive gymnast for 11 years, training up to 24 hours a week. It meant a lot of sacrifices to dedicate that much time to my training, but I loved every minute of it. Gymnastics taught me self-discipline, focus and commitment. My passion for a healthy lifestyle continued into university, where I developed a love for weight training. This paired perfectly with my educational focus on human physiology, biomechanics and nutrition. I took my education one step further to receive extensive instruction and certifications in personal training, including CanFit Pro, CPAFLA and PFLC. Following graduation, I started my career in the pharmaceutical sales industry.
After years of training myself in the gym, I went in search of a new challenge and reached out to a good friend to become my coach. Joining up with her team of competitors and finding a renewed focus, I dieted and trained extremely hard and competed for the very first time in November 2010. My goal was simple - overcome my fears, step on stage and display all my hard work. Never once did I think I would walk away with a first place trophy. And that was it – one show and I was hooked! The competitive fire was relit inside me and has been burning ever since. A year and half after first stepping on stage, I achieved what every woman in my sport dreams of – my IFBB Pro Card and the opportunity to compete amongst the best fitness athletes in the world! Within my first year as an IFBB Pro, I will have the opportunity to step on stage at both the prestigious Olympia and Arnold Europe.
