Allot of other women look up to you, who do you look up to?
I look up to many women in the industry; however, what I really love is helping others achieve their goals and transforming their bodies. I admire the hard work and determination in many of my clients and I love feeding off their positive energy.
Do you eat any of what people call junk food? If so how often?
The only thing I really like is a glass of wine on the weekend with some chocolate. I honestly love eating super healthy nutritious food. You will never see me eat fast food or burger and fries or anything greasy.
Do you drink alcohol? If so how often?
I like a glass of wine on the weekend but only in the offseason, I never touch it when it hardcore training mode for a contest.
What would an example be of your diet you eat day to day?
I eat a balanced diet of whole eggs, eggwhites, oats, chicken, veggies, yams, fruit and nuts. Pre-contest I cycle my carbs and fats for fat loss purposes.
If you could pick only 3 different body parts to put on your body from 3 other people, what would
