A:I'm originally from Maine but now currently live in Florida. I have lived here in the Tampa Bay Area for 6 years.
Q:How did you begin your journey to the WBFF?
A:A fellow BN shape clothing sponsored athlete, Berenice Salazar, is a WBFF pro. I decided to give it a try after competing in NPC bikini for 1 year. I competed in my first WBFF show on May 18, 2012 in the fitness model division and placed first which entitled me pro status!
Q:How is your diet prep and workout routine pre contest?
A:It has varied contest to contest depending on my current fitness level and length of time to prep. I have never ran the same prep twice. For my WBFF show in Orlando this year I did a high carb, medium protein, low fat. I had sushi once a week until 6 weeks out. I trained twice a day, 5 days. I prepped for 15 weeks. For WBFF Worlds I'm on a high protein and medium carb and fat intake. My calories are just as high as last prep, just from different food sources. I am not really having any sushi. I am training once a day 6 days a week with only 1/4 of the amount of cardio I'm used to completing. This prep I'm lifting heavier and for a longer frequency. My cardio is only high intensity.
Q:Any funny photo shoot stories?
A:Changing in public can always be interesting! :)
Q:LOL... Favorite movie?
A:Shooter, with Mark Wahlberg.
Q:Favorite leisure activity?
A:I enjoy the beach or shopping. Pretty typical girl. I love dressing up. I also like to go out for sushi with friends!
Q:What's the one thing we would be surprised to know about you?
A:I work full time as an occupational therapist in a hospital. Many believe my fitness is my career. It's all about time management!
