Read below to learn their stories and journey!


1. Why you started training: I started really getting into training after my second torn ACL from playing basketball. I soon realized I no longer wanted to push to play collegiate ball. At the same time when I met my boyfriend he introduced me to bodybuilding, I feel in love. I shifted my focus and never looked back. 

2. When you started: I started lifting in high school for basketball but started really getting serious and getting into true lifting in 2015

3. Lifting has been the one outlet and constant in my life through out the last 8 years from my ACL recovery, college, jobs, etc. Its given me some of the best people and relationships and I most definitely would not be the person I am today without it.

I started training about 5 years ago purely to get healthy for my kids. I wanted to be an active and involved mom.

I lost 100lbs and my mindset changed, I wanted to be strong and confident. I wanted to teach my kids what determination and drive can get you.  Teach my daughter to love all phases of the female body and what it is truly capable of.  In 2023 I had kept the weight off for 4 years and wanted to try something different, so I went into my first bodybuilding prep and competed in July of 2023. I walked away with 2 first place trophies and one 2nd place. 

This journey has meant everything to me I have discovered how strong and driven I am emotionally, mentally and physically and I can’t wait to see what 2024 brings.


There are definitely some days I don’t feel like training, but when I get back to it I remember why I love it. The way I feel after completing the workout, my heart racing and blood pumping, is one of the best feelings. The people I’ve met along my training journey is one of my favorite parts. Being able to encourage others and inspire others, by doing something I love to do is amazing as well. The aspect of being about to share knowledge I’ve learned and then being able to give it away to others is fulfilling for me. We are all in this together, helping each other reach their goals


1. I started training as a teenager for the same reasons most do, I was tired of being the skinny kid and wanted to get bigger.

2. Ive been lifting for about 10 years or so, but I started lifting more seriously probably about 5 years ago, and got into power lifting training 3 years ago.

3.) lifting has meant a lot to me, it's helped me with confidence in myself and with my mental health because it was an outlet for me to utilize. And now it's just a part of my life. It has also helped me build a foundation in my current firefighter career!

4.) I am a powerlifter. That's the main thing I train for, and eventually the Worlds Firefighter Games!


Before getting into bodybuilding, I was a powerlifter for 6 years. I’ve always loved training and having something to strive for. After finding myself in a very dark place, like most athletes in this sport, competitive bodybuilding gave me something to focus on.

From that focus I gained the mental strength and resilience to pull my life back together and leave an extremely toxic situation behind.  It has helped mold me into the best version of myself.  I truly found refuge in the iron. 

Since beginning my journey with bodybuilding in January 2023 I stepped on stage for the first time in November, placing 4th in Novice Class A, Bikini Division.

When did you start training?

I started bodybuilding in 2016, competed in my first show March 2019 (bikini), and my second November 2019 (figure). I took a 3 year break from BB and trained in powerlifting and strongman. I have been a strictly NPC Wellness Athlete for the last year.

 2. Why did you start:

Being a USMC Vet, I missed the structure and the discipline/pride that came with competing so I could never really let it go. I started to prove to myself who I was and what I was capable of. 

3. What it means to you: It means everything. It’s therapy, it’s endorphins, it’s anger management, it’s confidence, it’s quite literally strength, it means that I am worth so much more than I ever doubted. 4.

Since I can remember, staying active has been an integral part of my life. However, it wasn't until 2020 that I truly embraced training as a lifestyle. Motivated by a desire for physical fitness and a commitment to setting a positive example for my children, I dedicated myself to regular training sessions. To me, training goes beyond mere exercise—it's a powerful expression of self-respect. Through my journey, I've come to appreciate the profound impact that prioritizing one's health can have on overall well-being.
