PERSONAL INFORMATION

I’m a bit of a geek.  I love cats & I love dinosaurs.  I am an advocate in the tibetan community. I love life and have a passion for empowering woman to be all they can be.  Embrace, Empower and Educate on healthy clean eating.

WHAT ARE YOUR GREATEST FITNESS ACCOMPLISHMENTS SO FAR?

5th place at Border States San Diego in my first competition
I went from 31% body fat to 17% in 5 months!!! 

WHAT CHANGES HAVE YOU SEEN & WHAT HAS HELPED YOU MAKE THE TRANSFORMATION?

I have changed so much through the 5 months of my transformation. After finding out I was allergic to gluten, soy and amongst many other things I had to make a change.  Setting a big goal like competing was truly my biggest gift. I did this solely for the purpose of competing against myself.  My faith grew stronger because I was the only one that was going to make a difference day in and day out.  Now I feel like I can do anything.
