When did you start to compete and WHY?
I started to compete in 2007. I had been hitting the gym since I was 16 years’ old and time I got to my late 20s I liked the look of the bodybuilding scene. I then decided to give it a try and ever since then I have never looked back.
Have you done any other sports before?
I was an amateur kick boxer which i gave up due to injury.
What was the reaction of your friends and family when you decided to compete? The support from friend and family was amazing.
Do you remember your first time on stage? I did I always remember my 1st time on the UKBFF stage in 2012 no confidence no idea on bikini tan or presentation. Wearing heels from EBAY and a beach bikini
What changed since?
A lot has changed over the years my big one is self-belief and confidence having come out of a dark negative place.
Which did you competition you enjoy the most and why?
My favourite comp was UKBFF English Grand Prix 2018 taking 2nd place and qualifying for Arnolds in Barcelona.
What was / is your biggest success on stage or in personal life? My biggest success was taking 8th place at Arnolds 2018 and getting 6th place at UKBFF Finals
What do you think girls should know before they will hit the competition stage? Girls need to know a lot before hitting the stage understanding the criteria depending on what class they go or aim for. To invest in a coach having those extra set of eyes!! DIET & TRAINING. Down to the Bikini shoes, tan and Makeup. Most important part is the POSING going to see a posing coach to ensure you are hitting the right poses and presentation is perfect!!
Who is your bikini or fitness idol?
Ashley Kaltwasser has always been my idol for a lot of years.
How was your last prep and how did you manage your diet? As I was with a previous coach for my last prep diet went great until the last few weeks’ energy levels dropped and confidence did drop slightly, but I powered through it.
How often do you practice your posing? Posing I do daily in Gym, even at home striking those poses. I spend an hour every weekend in studio also.
Your favourite bikini colour? RED
Would you recommend us as bikini designer and why?
Highly recommend Bikini BKB by Bikini Mama. This bikini maker is the best of the best. All of my bikinis are the best bikinis a girl could wish for. The service, the quality and ensuring you are absolutely perfect prior to stage.

Do you have any other hobbies outside work and gym?
