Hey everyone! I am just now getting situated from being back from the Arnold on Sunday :) I wanted to post a few pics from it and also let everyone know that I should have pics and posters up for sale on my site within a month! Sorry sorry..I know it is taking soo long but it will be done!!
Here are a couple candid/unedited pics from my shoots!
I am also making plans once again to head to FL in a few weeks to work with a new company that I am soo excited to be working for. I will post more details as it comes closer :)
At the same time that all of this is going on I have decided to compete again and have started working with someone completely new, something I have never done before, and I am really really excited to see what kind of shape I get in. I am doing this 1000% just for myself as there are so many positive things going on with me right now, this is just something to see what happens BUT regardless I know I will be thrilled with the outcome!!
I hope you all are having an amazing week so far and I will be posting on here more often now that things are getting back to normal…somewhat :)) Have a great night everyone!!!
Hey all I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! The Arnold Classic is this week and I am getting so excited for all the good stuff that will be happening!!
If you all are in the area or will be attending be sure to come by the Iron Asylum booth and say hi!!! I will be working the booth Friday and Saturday as well as staying very busy with shoots! I can’t wait to shoot with Andrew Nicholson again and LGHFX and a few others are in the works as well!! As usual I will have no time and be crazy busy but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I am also almost done with getting pictures and posters on here for sale,thank you for being so patient with me. A couple more weeks, once I am back from this trip, and they will be out for anyone who wants them :)
Have a good night everyone, have an amazing start to your week tomorrow and thank you as always for the constant support!!!
Hey everyone, I hope you are having an amazing start to your week. I got home from Nationals and Atlanta late last night. As some of you know it did not go well, not even close to what was planned lol…I got third callout which was the WORST placing I have ever had in a show in my history of competing. I went from third place last year to third call out lol…
It’s all a matter of what they want, when they want it and how they want to do it…it is completely out of my control and that is what you accept when you decide to compete. You can place amazing at a show before (for example my 4th place finish in July of this year at Team U) and then next thing you know you’re waiting at the end of the line on stage to even get called at all….
Competing was something I chose to do because I wanted to…it made no impact whatsoever on my modeling career nor with sponsors so I guess I can be very lucky that my name and my career has been built on something that I do have complete control over. Will I do it again? I have noooo idea…I have no plans to one way or the other. My focus is on what is making me successful and that is my fitness modeling and working with sponsors and working with companies that being a “Pro” doesn’t come into play at all.
I have a large following, a wonderful support system through you all. I have been in amazing magazines with more to come in the next few months. I work with some amazing companies and sponsors so the competing will now be something of the past…unless I decide next year to give it another shot but strictly because I want to be on stage again with no intentions of any set outcome.
I will still be at the shows, working for my sponsors, working booths, doing photoshoots for different photographers and magazines… but as far as getting on stage to try to get that pro card…I have no idea if it will ever happen again. I love the sport, love watching and will always feel that way. I am just not sure it’s for me anymore and if their are any overall benefits that are greater than what I already have going on and continue to accomplish with or without the pro card.
I just wanted to thank EVERYONE who has supported me and helped me and just been there for me…I have some very AMAZING individuals in my life and I am so blessed and grateful for them…you all know EXACTLY who you are :))
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day and week and I’ll be back here soon….I have some projects I am working on and can’t wait to get back to putting pics and some other things on here for sale!!!
Thank you again peeps!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

Once again, I feel like I am alway repeating myself I have another amazing one from Wendi. This style is different and thats why I love it!!! It is so much fun to step outside of the fitness box sometimes and really see what I can accomplish. I love doing it all and Wendi makes it all possible!!! I hope you guys enjoy this pic, it’s up there on my faves list!!!
Hope you all have an amazing start to your week, smile and tell someone you love them today!!! <3 <3 <3
As I have said over and over again before, Wendi of Satio Photography is unbelievable!!! I just received pics from our latest shoot and this by far has to be one of, if not, my most favorite pic yet!! She has a way of capturing me, there is so much behind this picture and I am so happy with this and proud to call her my close friend!!! It’s such a privilege to have somebody that special in my life and not only as my friend but she just so happens to be one of the absolute best in the industry!!! Love you Wendi <3 <3 <3
Hope you all enjoy and love it as much as I do!!!
Have a wonderful night!!!
When I tell you Wendi has this unbelievable talent for capturing me in a way no one else can I mean it!!! I mean the creativeness of this woman is utterly amazing!!! I love this pic and hope it makes it way into the gaming world somehow!! Anybody that wants to share it or pass it along to anybody that could help with this let me know!! This pic needs to be an ad for something!!!
I am heading to Miami this coming week, I have a shoot scheduled with the amazing Jason Ellis for a great product shoot and possible covers (also with fitness model David Morin).
I am in need of a hair and MUA for the shoot. The shoot is scheduled for Wednesday May 2nd in Miami Beach and obviously is a paid job. If anybody has referrals or is one themselves and is interested (this will also be amazing exposure, we are going to be representing a new FDA approved product appearing on the site, the product boxes, ads, etc) please contact me ASAP with your rates so that I can then pass along your information to the company for more details and payment.
Thanks so much and spread the word!!! It will be a ton of fun too, the whole group that day are amazing peeps!!!
Have a great night and a wonderful weekend everybody!!!
I hope everybody is having a great week so far, it’s almost weekend time!! I wanted to post a new pic from my absolutely unbelievable shoot with Wendi of Satio Photography!! There will def be more to come but wanted to put one out there for now and in my photo gallery.
I hope you all love it as much as I do!! Enjoy the rest of ur day and I’ll be back with more blogging soon!!!
I hope everybody has been having a wonderful week so far! I am very excited for an upcoming shoot I have recently been asked to do. I am heading to Miami in a little under two weeks to do a product shoot for a new FDA approved product, I”m so excited to be a part of this and to show everybody what it is…when I can ;)
I am also very excited to be doing this shoot with fitness model David Morin who has been on the cover of many fitness magazines as well as a Dymatize athlete. We are lucky enough to have the amazing Jason Ellis photograph the shoot, both of us have worked with Jason a few times in the past so this is going to be one AMAZING day!!!
This shoot has also prompted me to start my show prep a little earlier than planned but I am not complaining! Starting earlier and being ahead of the game can be nothing but beneficial come competition time so for that I am very happy!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy every minute of it!! Thanks for all the support it’s always greatly appreciated!!!
Hey everyone!!! I just wanted to wish everybody a very Happy Easter this weekend!!! I hope you all are sharing this holiday with loved ones, family, friends…whoever is important to you!!!

I will also be going to watch my best friend compete in her 2nd WBFF figure show. She has been prepping for this for weeks and weeks with the guidance of Monica Brant and I can’t wait to see her show all her hard work at the show in CT next weekend!!! I am so proud of her!!! She is one of the most disciplined women I know and has a FT career and two children!!!
Again I hope everybody has an amazing holiday this weekend and enjoy yourselves and each other!!!
Hey everyone, once again Andrew of Nicholson Studios in Ohio has done it again with his lighting, his angles and the way he captures it all!! Check out my newest photo from him from our Arnold shoot. We had so much fun with this one. I have shot with Andrew three times now and everytime we do it’s more amazing than the last. If any of you have the chance to shoot with him do so!!! If you need his information shoot me a message and I’ll be happy to provide it :))
Have a great day!!!
