Started competing in the NPC in March of 2014. Competed in 2 NPC shows and then competed in 4 national NPC shows where I turned Pro in my 4th national show in November of 2015. I have competed in 12 Pro shows so far from 2016-2018. I qualified for the Olympia at the San Antonio Classic in 2017 which was also my first pro win. Since then, I have won the San Antonio Pro in 2018 and a 2nd place finish at Golden State Pro. I will be competing in my first Olympia in 2018.

Burger and sweet potato fries

Oatmeal. You can change it up and it’s a high-volume food!

Deadlifts and RDLs

I love being active outdoors. I enjoy hiking, biking, trails, and recreational sports.

I was a cheerleader at Baylor University. So once I graduated, I needed another hobby/sport that kept me active. I got into weight lifting because I wanted to put on muscle. I have always naturally been very lean and thin and wanted to add some curves to my frame. I found out about competing through social media. I went to an NPC show and loved all the glitz and glam of the bikini division. I decided to compete at my first show for fun and ended up falling in love with the sport. I mostly fell in love with how weight lifting made me feel strong and confident.

Trap, BPM, hip hop. I enjoy upbeat music that gets my heart racing and puts a smile on my face.
