Happy flashback and Flex Friday! This was such an amazing memory as I had finally earned my Pro card with the OCB at the Charm City Classic back in 2015 in the women's physique division. I was overjoyed and felt so proud because I had set my sight on this goal long ago. After competing in my first figure show back in 2011 up in Massachusetts, I had left that evening feeling empty and unaccomplished. At that moment, I decided I would never step on stage again and would pursue other sports. After a few months, my determination and competitive nature kicked back into action and I quit feeling sorry for myself. I decided I was going to get to work by first working on my discipline. I set my eyes on a goal, not knowing when it would be accomplished, but knowing I would eventually climb that mountain. I found my now friend and mentor Tina Peratino with #CSFP who transformed my presentation and posing. I found a family of Amazing Friends and supporters who helped push each other everyday. I could not have done it without them and my amazing husband and best friend Colton Cassell. I absolutely cannot wait to step on stage again at an undisclosed time to make them proud and see what I can come back with after this little setback. Here's to never giving up!
