My interest in Fitness and Nutrition began when I was very young, though back then I was all knees and elbows. I remember growing up being teased for being so skinny. I was always thin growing up but did not necessarily mean I was in good shape. After high school I began weight training and loved it. I got my degree in Elementary Education and taught in public school for 5 years and then moved to New Mexico School for the Blind and taught Braille there for nearly 7 years.
It wasn't until just four years ago when training to run the Bataan Death March (a 26.2 mile marathon all terrain) that I began to notice muscle development in my arms and really loved the way it looked. In 2009 I competed in the Mrs. New Mexico-America pageant where I walked away with the Swimsuit award and took the title of Mrs. New Mexico. I represented my state at the National Mrs. America pageant in 2010 and began judging fitness and bikini competitions. I admired the muscular physique of those competitors and began my training for my first Bikini competition late 2010. In 2011 I competed in Bikini and Model at Fitness New Mexico (a Fitness America preliminary show) and won 1st place in Bikini and 3rd place in Model. At the age of 34 I was beyond surprised and humbled to have done so well competing with 40+ ladies ranging in ages of 20-34!
My love for competition and commitment to my physique has led me to several competitions in a variety of organizations. I have placed top 5 in all of the seven competitions I have done to date, including Fitness New Mexico-America, OCB and NPC in New Mexico and in Texas. My dedication to my fitness and nutrition led to a desire to help others. In January of 2012 I received my Nutrition Counseling License from AFPA and began doing nutrition counseling out of my local fitness club, AlamoShape. Educating others about how to take care of themselves is very rewarding for me. I have seen immense amount of weight loss by my clients, not to mention their overall better health.
With nearly 30 years of pageant experience under my belt, I decided to use my knowledge to coach others. I am currently the Executive Director for the Mrs. New Mexico-America pageant and produce that show every year. Along with being a teammate of the FantasyShape competitors from AlamoShape in Alamogordo, I also coach my teammates of 30+ ladies for posing and nutrition. The fitness and nutrition industry is my passion!! I love everything about it!
