I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio where I spent most my childhood and adolescence in a gymnastics center.  I was involved in the sport for 16 years. I traveled all over the United States for competitions and was fortunate enough to travel to Moscow, Russia to train alongside some of Russia’s best. I made it all the way to the International Elite level and had the pleasure of training with some of the best gymnasts in the world.  The highlight of my career was in 1999 when I made the Junior National Team placing 19th in the nation at the U.S. Championships.  I had the chance to attend the number two school in the NCAA, but decided I did not want to pursue college gymnastics.  After my gymnastics career, I struggled trying to find myself without the “gymnast” title because that was all I had known.  Thanks to some very special people I could feel complete in my life yet again.  I have been interested in modeling from the time I was 13, but due to the demands of the sport and rigorous training I was unable to pursue it in my younger years.  But as fate would have it, I made my way into the modeling industry and quickly found myself achieving my childhood dream.   I am driven, passionate, optimistic and attentive.  My goal is to stand out in this industry and become a force to be reckoned with; and while I strive towards my goal, I will continue to enjoy my journey along the way.
