Q & A

AWARDS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS
From the time I began competing in 2013, each show I entered, I either won or received the honor of 2nd place. I turned Pro, IFBB Figure after 1 year of competing on a national level. When I turned Pro, at North Americans, I won both classes I entered, being honored with 2 Pro-Cards (of which, 1 defaulted to the Figure competitor that was 2nd place in my Division).
FAVORITE TYPE OF TRAINING

High volume: body part splits and high intensity sprints, Jacob’s ladder & stepmill intervals, and spin classes!

WHAT IS YOUR GRANITE SUPPLEMENTS ROUTINE?

Right now, I start every day with a dose of Thermo Burn and some cardio. When it is time to train, I grab a scoop and a half of HyStim and my Essential Amino Acids, then I head to the gym and have a killer session, tons of focus and endurance. No crash!

WHAT IS IN YOUR GYM BAG?

Lip gloss, HyStim, grips, bands, extra towels, deodorant, always an extra tank top, and cycling shoes.

WHAT’S ON YOUR WORKOUT PLAYLIST?

Mostly hip hop but you may catch me with some Tiesto/ Electronic all the way across the board to some Fleetwood Mac.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF THE GYM?

First, I always spend time with family. That is #1. Also cycling — my road bike is usually in the car as soon as the weather breaks in Cincinnati and is ready to go! Always hiking and trail running, camping, and traveling. I love to explore new destinations and crave being near the water… I’m sharing space and time half the month in Florida now and loving it! Kayaking and paddleboarding are becoming big hobbies too.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST GYM PET PEEVE?
People that aren't kind to those around them or mock others for being there if they aren't in great shape -- I will not tolerate it and always defend them if I see if in person or online. Pet Peeve #2 is a lack of "personal hygiene"!
FAVORITE FOODS
Sushi! And donuts -- just the icing haha... Swedish fish if I'm having some candy.
FAVORITE EXERCISE
All glutes, all day long + just about any shoulder move you can imagine!
WHO ARE YOUR HEROES AND WHY?

My mom and grandma are the strongest women I have ever known. Mentally, emotionally, just strong women that always remain focused and driven in order to achieve their goals of education and instilled an incredible work ethic, morals, and truth within their children.

WHAT MAKES GRANITE SUPPLEMENTS SPECIAL?

I've actually never used supplements before Granite. I was barely consistent with protein powder. Pre-workouts and Aminos (BCAA/EAA's) never worked at all, and others worked for a bit and then left me feeling tired, bloated, and I'd crash after the "pump and stim" for the rest of the afternoon. I can honestly tell you now, I use Granite EVERY DAY. I don't promote products that I don't believe in. And, part of the reason I stand behind Granite is because of who leads the company. John Meadows is an ethical, honest man that created products that not only work but are highly safe and I'm beyond proud to stand alongside him and this company.
