Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
My goal is to become fearless in the pursuit of what sets my soul on fire and to every day be better than the day before. To always show up, even when I don’t want to. But most importantly, to be proud of myself every single stage of my fitness journey. I want to compete in the coming year and place first but my main goal is to be the next Biogen Face of Fitness.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I’m an overcomer. I want to show women that we all fall sometimes but it’s the fall that creates you and it’s standing back up that matters. I want to show women that we matter and I want to use this ambassadorship to help women fall in love with a healthy and fit lifestyle
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
“If you can dream it and believe it, you can achieve it.”
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
I’m a small-town girl who grew up playing sports but I have faced numerous challenges along the way, including a knee injury and heart problem. But those things created the woman I am today. I love to gym, play hockey and swim. I love to live a healthy lifestyle to feel good about myself. Together with my husband, we train 5 times a week. I coach hockey and help coach swimming. I have competed in bodybuilding shows. My fitness journey is all about healing and growing, mentally, spiritually and physically.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I am fearless and I know I have what it takes.
