Q & A
AWARDS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS
I am a certified phlebotomist in the state of Washington. One of the reasons as to why I pursued the medical field is because I enjoy helping people. As I began to climb the ladder in the IFBB Fitness division I placed 2nd at the 2019 Olympia and with much thought and reassurance from my husband we agreed I needed to resign from my job at the hospital and focus 110% on my passion for fitness. I have won the biggest title of my career thus far as the Arnold Classic Ms. Fitness International Champion 2020! I’m excited about the future!
FAVORITE TYPE OF TRAINING
My Favorite type of training is off-season lifting! With more calories comes heavier weights and more compound movements which I love!
WHAT IS YOUR GRANITE SUPPLEMENTS ROUTINE?
My Granite Supplements routine starts as soon as I wake up:
6:30 am – 2 caps Thermo Burn with 1 Scoop of Essential Aminos while I do my fasted cardio
8:30 am – Meal 1 and 1 Joint Care along with other vitamins
12:30 pm – Intra workout 1.5 scoops of Recovery FP
2:00 pm – Post workout 1 scoop Granite Supplements Protein Powder with 40gs of carbs (cream of rice or 4 rice cakes)
WHAT IS IN YOUR GYM BAG?
My gym bag is HUGE! I have basically my life in there especially when it’s contest season! Lifting straps, belt, elite FTS bands, knee pads, speaker, wrist guards (fitness routine practice), Granite Supplements Intra Recovery FP, flat shoes, lip balm, and my post-workout – Granite Supplements Protein Powder – Vanilla with 40g carbs or 4 Rice cakes.
Depending on the day I like to switch it up. Leg day is heavier music like Metallica, Pantera, and Linkin Park. But then there are days I like to dance around to EDM music or rap!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF THE GYM?
Outside of the gym my husband and I play softball – we’ve been doing this together for almost 3 years! It’s great to do something out of my comfort zone and in a social setting where you get to meet new people. We also like to go on adventure type vacations – last year we went cage diving with great white sharks in Guadalupe Island and swam with whale sharks in Baja Mexico!
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST GYM PET PEEVE?
When people don’t wipe their sweat off the bench.
My favorite foods are anything dessert but right now I’m hooked on carrot cake! I do enjoy any type of red meat like burgers and steak! YUUUMMMM!!!
My favorite exercise is rack deads – mid shin (Meadows style) or my new belt squat machine.
WHO ARE YOUR HEROES AND WHY?
My hero is my husband, Matt. Matt has a work ethic like no other, he’s constantly productive and always a few steps ahead of any task at hand. Matt is the hardest worker I know – he’s patient and intelligent. He put me and our family first and always does his best to make me feel on top of the world. Matt’s passion for lifting and living a healthy lifestyle by eating clean and playing sport has been so positive in my life! That’s just a few reasons as to why he’s my hero ❤
