I currently live in Crystal lake, IL. I have 4 brothers and sisters and 2 of the best parents anyone could ask for. I recently graduated from North Boone High School and am now attending McHenry County College. I hope to continue on to the University of Chicago where I would like to major in business marketing, while continuing on competing of course!
I also work at Patty Tax Service & Information which is our family owned business. I enjoy relaxing movie nights with my friends at my house or shopping around the wonderful city of Chicago. Ever since I was a child, I always had a love for sports. I admired athletes who would work their heart out to be the best. I played basketball for about 8 years. The game taught me to set high goals for myself, never say I can’t, and never give up. Nothing is impossible, you just have to get up and go get it, and nothing will be handed to you.
May 2011 is when I was introduced to bikini competitions. My coach Nicole D’ Angelo Bryant spotted me in the middle of my high school gym class and recruited me on to her team B-Xtreme.
Who has inspired you the most to become a bikini athlete?
The person who has inspired me the most is my Coach Nicole D’ Angelo Bryant. She introduced me to this amazing sport. I had no idea what I was getting myself in to but excited to take on a new challenge in life, I accepted. She helped me grow as a person and as an athlete. She brought out the better and more confident person in me. She has guided me through as a coach and a friend, and no matter what, she has always believed in me. I can’t thank her enough for giving me this opportunity. B-Xtreme since day one has treated me like family and I know that where ever this journey takes me, they will always be behind me supporting me.
