IFBB Figure PRO
I grew up in Yakima Washington where I was active in sports from when I was young on and off until I graduated high school. I played soccer, basketball, softball and when I entered high school I danced on Drill Team for three years. I loved everything about being able to come up with a routine, being able to teach it to others and having it all come together to perform. After I graduated high school I knew I wasn’t going to become a college athlete nor was it something I had a desire to become, but I still loved being athletic. I began running around campus, around town, on the tracks at school, anywhere outside because back then I believed the gym was a place where the boys went and lifted weight while the girls did cardio upstairs. I earned my Associates Degree in Science and continued on to pursue a nursing degree. As the stress began to increase due to the demands between school and life, running became an outlet for me. It allowed me to find moments of clarity and to check out of the chaos for a little while.
In 2013, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona. With the change in location, I was looking for a new challenge with fitness as well, because running in Arizona I realized was seasonal! I wanted something outside my comfort zone. I began doing my research about weight lifting and movements and exercises, the do’s and don’ts, cardio routines and diets. I came up with a regimen on my own and if I could stick to the workouts and the diet for a few months, then I would begin to look for a coach to further my fitness goals. In January of 2014, I walked into Pro Physiques and met with my coach Damian Segovia and I never looked back. I earned my IFBB Pro card in the figure division 18 months later. Getting into the fitness industry was the best decision I have ever made, it’s changed my life and made me accomplish dreams and goals I never knew I had. Pro Physiques allowed me to realize I am an athlete and that fitness truly is a passion of mine. I found what I enjoy doing, and that is what I want for others as well! Helping to accomplish the goals of individuals who are ready to make a change in their life through diet, and fitness, because the struggle is real but that’s what makes it so wonderfully worth it!
