I started weight training 16 years ago, and entered my first bodybuilding competition in 1989. I've always been athletic - played sports through jr. high and high school, college, and continued after that. Bicycling, running, triathlon, volleyball, basketball, track & field, gymnastics, swimming - I've done a lot of them, but nothing ever really fit my body like lifting weights and bodybuilding.
I'm 41 years old, married and the mother of two grown sons. I am a Human Resources consultant for the State of Washington, and also a part-time personal trainer and part-time student.
