I started my fitness journey at the age of 16 when I discovered that I had the power to change my unhealthy habits and my appearance through healthy eating and exercise. After over a decade of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and having four babies, I came to a realization, when my mother died of cancer at age 59. She would never get to see her grandchildren grow up, or her great grandchildren being born. I became increasingly aware of a growing need to become extremely healthy and fit for her, for myself and for my family. I decided to become an example to the world that it was possible to stay healthy and fit throughout your entire life. My dedication to that goal has endured. Over 3 decades later at the age of 59, the same age my mother was when she died, I competed in my first all natural figure competition. I was invited to join the Iron Angels, a group of elite female athletes whose mission it is to enhance the fitness journey of all women. I was Miss October of their 2013 Iron Angels Fitness Calendar, and will appear again in the 2014 calendar. Now, at age 63, I did my fifth all natural fitness competition in June of 2017. My mission is to illuminate the fact that age should not keep you from being fit, healthy and vibrant. But my goal is to bring the same tidings of joy to all people when I turn 70, and even 80...dare I say even 90?
