1. After you competed in the Florida NPC in 2017 what did you think of the experience? Special moments?

I had such an awesome time competing this year. It's always fun meeting new people and seeing old friends. The most special part of this year was competing with my husband for the 1st time. This was my 7th show and his first. We did the entire prep together. It was a great experience and my first win!

2. Did you accomplish the goals you had set out for that prep?

I absolutely accomplished my goals. 2016 was my return to competing after taking about 2 years off. As most competitors my main goal was to be the best version of myself. I also wanted to take a 1st place win in 2016, which I accomplished only after working with my current coaches. Thanks to coaches Bryan www.facebook.com/bryan.raymond.370 and Diana Raymond www.facebook.com/dianna.semmens with team Progress & Pride http://progressandpride.com/ I exceeded my goals and expectations for 2016.

3. Please share a little about your competition history in overview and plans for the future?

My fitness journey began when my son was a year old. I had gained an extreme amount of weight and was determined to get back to my pre pregnancy weight. During that time I was introduced to the competition world through friends at the gym. I was drawn to it immediately, I had tremendous respect for the women on stage. So in 2011 I decided to compete in my first show, the Europa Show of Champions. I didn’t do well in my placing but it ignited a drive to do better. I did 4 shows in 2 years with moderate success but kept missing the 1st place win. I decided to take a couple of years off to work and improve on my physique. This year was my comeback year! I was determined to bring the package I knew I was capable of. I competed in 3 shows this year. My Last show of the year was the Champion Harbor classic where I placed 1st in my Class. In 2017 my goal is to compete in my first National show.

4. What would you say is your biggest source of inspiration and motivation?

My motivation comes from my drive and determination to be a better version of myself everyday. I am inspired daily by the love and support of my wonderful husband and amazing son.

5. Plans to do another show? If so which one and what division if you currently know?

I am so excited for the 2017 season! I will remain in the bikini division and plan to start out the season at the Progress and Pride Classic in Fort Myers, FL. I’m still waiting for the official schedule to make my other choices but I will be ending the season at a national show.
