Anyone who has worked years for something knows sometimes that one moment does not show all the work leading up to that moment. That's competing.
I genuinely compete because it's a sport and I can continue to keep the mindset of the athlete I have always been from little to college soccer and cheerleading.
Fitness is the hardest sport because when you get up there you have to be in the moment plus dialed in physically! Many people know I rock the stage and have been highly successful since 2002 which was the first show and trophy.
Making many friends including Monica who I am honored to work with today and of course sponsored by the best supplement company in the world. Appearing in ads and magazines across the world representing the KC area which is the 2nd most overweight area in the country.
Of course my passion for motivating others just shines on stage. Because daring to be different is hard in a world that wants to mold into trends and fashion that everyone is doing. I am a foodie and love to eat (true story!) but I also love prepping foods that make others question if it's healthy and the stage is what continues to help me become more creative and passionate of the underlying goal of the stage.
"Helping one person at a time live a healthy life" of a girl from Kansas can rock a national stage and world ads for fitness. Anyone can try to be just healthy and not a next level athlete at heart like me. Hope my next first place inspires others to stay on the path! Because I'm not stopping yet...I mean come on, I am not that far from winning!
