How did you get started in fitness?
My aunt is a Bikini Pro for the NPC, she inspired me to compete in Bikini which I did at the 2011 Europa in Dallas, TX where I took second. From there on out I knew I always wanted to be in the best physical shape I could be, and knew I wanted to make my mark on the fitness industry!
How do you stay motivated in your career?
I am a personal trainer. It’s easy for me to stay motivated! In order to motivate my clients I must live the lifestyle, act and look the part! My body is my business card!

I love to listen to anything from pop, hard core rap or crazy dubstep or EDM music.

How do you deal with cravings?
I deal with my cravings with the dieting approach I have. I follow IIFYM/Flexible Dieting. I eat what I want and when I want it. I’m just very conscious of my macronutrient breakdown. When I feel like I want more than what my daily allotment is, I usually drink a diet soda or diet powerade!
What does your diet consist of?
My diet consists of lots of lean protein (96/4 Ground Beef is my favorite),high fiber foods like berries and wraps, I love Greek yogurt and have it daily!
What are your 3 favorite exercises?
Dead-Lifts – because they not only work your hamstrings and glutes but they have also given me a very strong core and back. I always feel like a beast when I dead-lift!
Lunges – because I get sore every single time I do them! I feel like these really target my glutes as well. Remember push up through your heel!
Lateral Raises – I Love capped shoulders, and this movement has been the best for really sculpting my delts!

I love Cameron Diaz! She is always in the most amazing shape! I think it’s funny when the media tries to portray her as “too muscular!” I think she is the perfect mix of muscle and femininity.
What celebrity male’s physique do you find idea on guys?
I admire “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson. I mean C’MON look at him! I use his social media accounts to motivate me with my own workouts! He is just so dedicated!
