Can you please share with our readers your background and interests?

I was born and raised on the East coast of Canada and moved to Montreal when I was 19 to study fashion design. While working in the industry I
continued with my love for all things health and fitness on the side and finally took the plunge and decided to compete in 2010. In 2011 I decided to follow my passion for health and fitness and move back to the East coast to begin a career change.

Competing in figure is just a perk of my healthy lifestyle now. I love being healthy and fit enough now to run races, hike, and fully enjoy life. After growing up very overweight with several health problems, I wouldn’t trade my healthy lifestyle for anything now.

In my spare time I love to cook and bake, hike, camp, or just be outside, and spend time with family and friends.

Who has inspired you the most to succeed as a Figure Competitor?

When I began competing my biggest inspiration came from wanting to look like the women in fitness magazines. It began as a competition with myself to push myself to train and compete to look like those women. Over time I came to realize that everyone, myself included, has strengths and weaknesses and there is no logic in trying to look like someone else, it is simply about making yourself the best you can be.

When competing became about bettering myself, and not trying to look like someone else, I began to find inspiration in people I met in my everyday life, other competitors, bloggers and friends and family. Everyone has their story for wanting to be healthy, get active and compete (whether it be in fitness or anything else) and that is what drives me forward.

What competitions have you made appearances in and what are your placings?

To date I have competed in four competitions: IDFA Novice Classic 2010, IDFA Montreal Classic 2010, IDFA Eastern Canada Classic 2010 and the IDFA National Capitol Classic 2011.

I was a finalist for the IDFA Transformation Challenge in 2010, but have not had any placings to date. My biggest goal is never a trophy, but simply to walk off stage knowing I have improved from my last competition.

When is your next show and competing class?

My next competition will be Atlantic Classic Bodybuilding, Figure & Model Championships April 21st in Moncton, New Brunswick and I will be competing in figure medium.
