I played competitive premier soccer until I broke my leg my senior year in high school. After breaking my leg, I searched for a new competitive outlet. My father introduced my to CrossFit where regained my strength, physique, and competitive drive. My father (a 3X CrossFit games athlete and professional bodybuilder of over 20 years) then pushed me to try bodybuilding. I went pro in my first figure show and have been competing ever since.
I still have a titanium rod in my tibia from my high school break.
