Please read more about Toby.
Could you please tell our readers your background and interests?
I am a 36 year old mother of two daughters. Life is busy! In addition to keeping up with my children, I am a Global Television News Anchor and I own a small clothing boutique. I am also a wife to a loving and thankfully very supportive husband.
Who inspired you the most to become a figure competitor?
I am just at the beginning of my ‘figure competitor’ journey. I have admired many women, some who I know and some who I see only in magazines. I admire anyone with the discipline required of this sport and after completing my first competition am happy to count myself among these women.
What competitions have you made appearances in and what placements have you achieved?
I just competed in the 2012 Western Canadians in Kelowna. I placed 5th in the Figure ‘D’ category.
What is your next upcoming show and competing class?
I am currently planning out my schedule. I’m looking at the IDFA Show in Calgary this October, as well as the Sandra Wickham Fall Classic in Vancouver in November. Beyond that, who knows…just one step at a time! I am working at putting on some muscle right now!
