Where and when were you born? I was born in Sandford North Carolina May 17, 1970.
Were you involved in sports or fitness prior to bodybuilding and how did you get started with weight training? I started Gymnastics and Ballet at the age of 9. At the age of 12 I started running Track and played Basketball. When I started high school, I continued to run track and also joined the Cross Country Team. I received a Track and Cheerleading Scholarship. Moved to Oklahoma City started modeling for three years. I started lifting weights joined the AAPF (American Amateur Powerlifting Federation) for 5-6 years. I won the World Championship and wanted something more, I then started bodybuilding 3 years ago. I grew up with two brothers and my mom bodybuild when I was younger..so I would say bodybuilding is in the family.
Was it a goal for you to compete in bodybuilding competitions right from the begining or was it something that grew in your mind as time went on and you saw the progress in your body? I never imagine me doing bodybuilding, It has always been around me my entire life. People would tell me all the time that I should be a bodybuilder , but I did not see what they were seeing. After I exceeded my goal in Powerlifting I told myself I would do only one Bodybuilding show. I did one show and loved it every since.
