This is my personal bio:
I started lifting weights in May of 2010 with the goal of entering my first figure competition in October 2010. I ended up switching from figure to bodybuilding because it was the best fit for my personality and physique. I have been involved in different aspects of physical fitness my whole life. As a child growing up in Minnesota, I was a competitive figure skater. I taught PE to kids in K-12 for 10 years, teaching skating basic skills, coaching cross-country skiing and running for several years too.
These are my accomplishments:

Top 5 (4th place) Natural World Champion - Musclemania

Idaho Axiom Championships Woman's Overall Champions
Tacoma Supernaturals 2nd Place Overall
Alaska State Championships Woman's Open Class Champion

ABFF Anchorage Pro-Am. Overall Woman’s Open Class Champion

ABFF State Championships 2nd Place Overall

Featured Amateur of the Week


ABFF Anchorage Pro-Am. Overall Woman’s Open Class Champion

Crystal Cup 2nd Place Woman’s Open Class


Community Leadership Award For exemplary service and dedication to improving the lives of others by promoting and fostering opportunities for participation in sports, fitness, or physical activities

Flint Hills Race Series 3rd Place Overall Woman


Model Fitness School, in recognition for a commitment to enhancing student physical activity. GDS was the first school in Alaska to attain this award.
These are my fitness related goals:
I am a wife, mother, teacher and professional woman’s bodybuilder representing the ABFF (Alaska Bodybuilding Figure and Fitness). It is the only drug tested federation in Alaska promoting natural athletes. I also work as a Fitness STAR Competitor Team Leader. *

I belong to a family of dreamers – a family whose legacy includes; the inception of the Iditarod – The Toughest Dog Sled Race on Earth, summating Mt. McKinley with a dog team, and a legacy of achievements related to dog mushing and Alaskan history paralleled by none.

My athletic goals are simple;

- It is my intention as a Natural Bodybuilder to be an walking billboard for self-respect through proper nutrition and exercise.

- To inspire both women and men to strive for personal greatness, forgo shortcuts, temptations and embrace the journey of developing lifelong habits that promote health and wellness.

The side effects of these goals have been increased energy, confidence, and improved health.

Additionally these same actions have inspired my family to make their own health a priority along with many friends who have set and achieved personal goals too. Knowing that my lifestyle inspires others to set and accomplish new goals is rewarding beyond words.

We are all worth investing in. We are all capable of achieving greatness. It took me years to overcome many useless and sabotaging thought patterns and actions and I still have many areas for improvement.

Many of us are our own worst enemies. Why not instead become our best advocates?
These are my sponsors:
Badger Glass, Fairbanks/Anchorage Alaska
Hope -Jahren Family
Redi-Tee's / J&M Redington Enterprise
Zeitler family
Wright family
Vernet/Dart family
SO TAN - Wasilla Alaska
Badger Glass, Fairbanks/Anchorage Alaska
Mermelstein Family
My modeling experience(s) list:
I have been competing on stage and in photo shoots for 2 years now
Other relevant experience I have:
In 2009 I received the Presidential Physical Fitness Council’s Community Leadership Award for my contributions to improving the overall health of the children I worked with in interior Alaska. This is one of my most treasured accomplishments because less than a dozen of these awards are given annually throughout the US.
These are the sports and/or activities I participate in:
MMA, Mountain Biking, Running, Skiing, Track & Field
The modeling opportunities that I am interested in:
Calendar, Editorial, Infomercial, Magazine, Portfolio, Promotional, Sports
I will offer my services for:
Exchange for Product, Magazine Features, Speaking Engagements, Spokesperson, Supplements
My competition weight is:
My chest / waist / hips size in inches is:
My shoe size is:
My hair colour, length and/or style is:
The languages I speak are:
My words to live by:
Aim high. Never give up, surround yourself with people who bring out your best, believe in yourself, forgive - forgive and focus on health and well-being. There is no magic pill, no secrets and no shortcuts to true excellence. This is true in health, education, business, character and on and on.

Lastly, we want to generously offer you a 10% referral fee for any NEW sponsor, advertiser, vendor and/or Fitness STAR Model Search competitor that you personally introduce to me.
