My health journey was not a typical one. Being born two months premature I suffered from RSV and severe asthma as a child. Doctors said I would never live a normal life. In some sense, they were right. In some way these limitations liberated me, and ultimately shaped the person who I am today. I used this to propel me past the standard doctors had set for me and what I was expected to accomplish in life. My health and fitness journey is what's helped me to have the discipline to achieve all of my goals.
I have always been active, trying many sports, but cheerleading is what stuck. Being a young athlete taught me the importance of training and discipline at an early age, but I really didn’t get serious about strength training until getting introduced to it in college.
I graduated from Howard University with a major in Sports Medicine and a minor in Chemistry. I also interned at EXOS (formerly known as Athlete’s Performance) in Pensacola, Florida. There I helped facilitate training and pre and post workout nutrition for college recruits, Eagle Fund military, and professional athlete groups. All the while still competing in NPC figure competitions and expanding my knowledge for health and wellness.
I am currently working as a wellness consultant and personal trainer in Los Angeles, California. I received my personal training certification from NCSF. I won top five placing in NPC local shows, national shows, and earned an IFBB pro card. I continue to expand my knowledge base of health and wellness through classes, expos, and seminars. I find joy in sharing my passion and knowledge with others pursuing optimum health and wellness.
