How did you get into your chosen sport?
I started training with weights and decided I wanted a goal to work towards. I competed in my first competition 6 months after I begun training and have been adicted to competing ever since.
What motivates you?
There are so many things that motiviate me, wanting to bring a better package to the stage each time I compete is one. There are also so many strong female fitness role models out there that motivate me, and I hope to one day motivate other women the way I have been motivated by them. I also become really motivated when I notice changes or muscle gain, little things like that push me to work even harder.
Lifting and Eating? Haha but really, when I'm not at the gym I like going to the movies with friends and going out for dinners (when I have a cheat meal) and just spending time with my friends and family. I love going to the snow and snowboarding in winter and spending as much time as possible at the beach in summer.
I listen to all kinds of music, it depends what mood I am in. But I love listening to the Shredz Workout playlists when I am training.
I try not to use the word diet when it comes to my nutrition. I like to say I live a healthy lifestyle which means eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and lean meats and having the occassional treat. When I'm not in preparation for competition I try my best to eat clean 6 days a week and allow myself one day over the weekend to have a cheat meal so that I keep my sanity.
I train weights 6 days a week. I also do cardio 3-6 times a week depending on if I am just maintaining my weight or prepping for a competition.
I love OxyShred and Carnitine for helping get rid of stubborn fat. I also use Amino Energy all the time and have plenty of BCAAs. I love WPI Protein too, it's the perfect snack to have when you're on the run. Not sure if Quest Bars are classified as a supplement but they are a staple in my diet, I eat at least one a day.
Placing in the Top Ten at my first competition WBFF Australia.
To first (hopefully) earn my WBFF Pro Card and then go on to compete at the WBFF World Championships in Las Vegas.

Best advice anyone's ever given you:
"Trust the process" in regards to Competition Prep, you just need to trust in the process (and your coach) and know that everything will come together in the end if you put in the work.
