Proudest moment: Hearing my kids say that they "love me so much, and are lucky to have me as their mommy", they are the reason I am striving to meet my goals! (they deserve the most that life has to offer).

I have lifted weights (I asked for 10lb dumbbells for my 8th birthday, thanks to Charles Atlas on T.V.), and played numerous sports most of my childhood years. I became more involved in weight training in my late teens. However, it wasn't until 2002 that I started training to compete.

I competed in WNSO 2003 (Vancouver, World Natural Sports Organization) placing 2nd in the women's Light Weight Class. My Second competition was the FVF Femsport 2003 competition in Vancouver (I trained so differently for this and I loved it!). I will be competing next year, once I get my Lion-In-the-Sun product soaring.

I love competing, there is nothing that I have every done in my life that can compare to the exhilaration that I feel up on stage.

I was amazed by the incredible changes to my body that I saw every morning I woke up. What a great motivator. My body was transforming right before my own eyes. I owe so much to my trainers and nutrition counselors: Dawn Allison, Martin Crowder and Brent Axman. For without their professional care I could never have achieved 6% body fat while maintaining my Lean Mass.

I invented a product called Lion-In-the-Sun while preparing for my 1st competition. . . My life's path has changed as a result! I am now actively pursuing my dream of making my creation become a success. If you read my article you will certainly understand what motivates me. I have never worked harder in my life then I have these last 3 years (training and building a business). But I can honestly say that I have enjoyed and grown in so many ways as a result of my dedication and determination. I look forward to what the future will hold for me and for my family.
