Spring of 2012 is where it all started. I was introduced to Sheryl Atwood through the dance studio I teach at. Immediately I told her that I have been thinking of doing a fitness competition but I have no idea where to start. She introduced me to Cathy, Paula and Melanie at an Isagenix meeting. This is where my direction started to take place. If I had questions I could easily email Paula and she would answer them for me. I felt that they believed in me in just a short amount of time. That is the best feeling in the world!

I went to a few Sunday sessions prior to my first competition in September 2012. It was great to be around girls that were all about the same healthy lifestyle that I was leading! All the girls and coaches were so helpful and so accepting no matter what!

I won my first competition in September but I needed help with my costume and bikini. From there, I was a Savage girl. They helped me with my costume and got me to where I needed to be. My workouts and nutrition changed for my next competition. I thought my body was ready for my September competition but I was far from it! They helped me in every aspect that I needed help in!

When November came around, it was time for Nationals. Yes, Nationals. In such a short amount of time, I knew I wanted to do more! This time around it was full speed ahead with Cathy and her team. I listened to everything they said and followed the plans provided to me! It was amazing the transformation I made from

September to November What a difference. I am extremely grateful that I met Cathy at the right time! Everything happens for a reason and I am glad I found the 1st team ever made!

Even though I have only been on the team for a short time, I have learned a lot! I have learned that it is all about having balance in life and fitness. This is my dream, my passion, my everything! I can’t wait to see what else is in store for me in my future as a Savage sister! Love you mama!
