Bio: I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, but did live briefly in both North and South Carolina. I have been married for 10 years and have one daughter. When I was 15 I competed in powerlifting and I could deadlift 330 pounds and squat 250 pounds and held the Oregon, national, and world record for my age and weight group in the world association of bench presses and deadlifts (WABDL).
At my heaviest I weighed 248 pounds. I first came to Diva Den Studio to take Gina Grant's Zumba class, but finally got brave enough to try Hashim's bootcamp class to lose weight and to get in better shape and from there I started taking more classes.
I also have 2 dogs, a 10 year old west highland white terrier named Dewey and a 3 year old golden retriever named Sophie.
I am currently taking classes to become a certified personal trainer through NASM and work the front desk at DDS.
