Bio

In my younger years I was always skinny and lanky, yet stayed active. I loved playing music and although I wrestled through middle school, during high school the only extracurricular I was involved in was marching band. I played tuba and I was a huge nerd. I never touched any weights until I was in my junior year of college where I took weightlifting as an elective as opposed to ballroom dance and continued when I moved from Columbia, South Carolina to Charleston, South Carolina – 10 minutes from the beach. I just wanted to look good with my shirt off so I got my first gym membership and went to youtube for all of my workout routine so. I immediately fell in love with the progress I was making and the lifestyle. Going to the gym turned out into a huge stress reliever and the days I didn’t go seemed like days wasted. I didn’t really put on size until I went from eating two to three meals a day to training my body to take in 7 to 8 full meals. Once I had figured this out I made 15 -20 pound jumps in size over the next 3 years. This was about the time when I was approached about competing. I never imagined myself on stage as it was a sport that would put me way out of my comfort zone but a friend and I made a pact that we would just go for it to see what happens. I did my own prep and competed in both physique and classic physique. The package I brought was good enough for 2nd place in physique and 3rd in classic. That taste of stage and seeing how far I could push my body ignited a higher intensity and passion for the sport. I competed in Miami Nationals in 2017 achieving first callouts and now my focus is turning pro in Las Vegas this July after a warm up competition in my home state of South Carolina.
