It wasn't until 2016, after watching her first Olympia live streaming from the couch after a long day of personal training, she realized that she was already half way to being able to compete in the fitness division with her background and tumbling skills. She entered the NPC Tampa Pro show and placed 1st in fitness and won the overall title. After being on stage, she immediately fell in love with the sport. After this success, she decided to join Underrated Muscle to help her take it to the next level and prepare to compete at Jr USAs and earn her IFBB pro card.
