Bio

I am the youngest of five children from Stoughton, Ma. As the runt of the litter, it was my job in life to do things better than all that had come before me. That meant being the best athlete, the best student, the most entertaining... You get the picture. So what turned out was a very competitive, very driven girl who loves to make people laugh!

I played Ice hockey, Softball, Basketball, and Field hockey in high school, and continued playing softball for 4 more years at Eastern Connecticut State University. When I graduated from Eastern I decided to pursue a career in education and coaching. This fed my competitive nature and allowed me to give help and guidance to those who needed me. Unfortunately the passion that had led me down this path began to dwindle, as the “business side” of college athletics began to overshadow all the things that I had loved about coaching and teaching.

During my last year of coaching a full time college softball program, I was finding myself very unhappy and more than slightly depressed. I knew that I was going down a very unhealthy path and began running and lifting as a means to distract myself... I had always had poor body image due to carrying a little extra weight on my 5'2 muscular frame, and although I never looked overweight in my clothing, I was never truly happy with my body. Exercising gave me a new goal and a new outlook on waking up everyday. I have been an athlete my entire life, so I have always exercised, but this time it was different... This time it was for survival!

After years of trying to shed a couple pounds here and there, I decided to educate myself about nutrition and how the body works from the inside out. I read anything I could get my hands on in an attempt to lose weight correctly and treat my body as the treasure that it always should have been. To make a long story short, I lost about 12 percent bodyfat and 4 pants sizes.

Once I had made peace with my body I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I had always been a huge fan of fitness competitions that I had seen on T.V. Unfortunately for me I had no gymnastics or dance background and on top of that had a huge fear of being on stage! I was determined though, so I hauled my cookies up to
Canada and competed in a WNSO Fitness Modeling competition. I needed to be sure I could even go out on to the stage, never mind perform a routine. Well, I won the competition and the minute I got home I called a Choreographer.
