|Accountant by trade, I've obtained a business degree with a double major while working as an accountant in the Cayman Islands. In 2007 I returned home to Canada to pursue my passion in the fitness industry. While still maintaining my business background and incorporating my love for fitness I am now the business manager for a high performance training facility in Calgary, AB called the Duckett Performance Centre.
I am the 2009 North American Best Body Swimsuit champion and also placed 2nd in the World under the Best Body Swimsuit category. Currently my focus is in fitness & swimsuit modeling.
I have had the privilage to shoot with some of the industry's top photographers and one in particular, Raphael Mazzucco, who is known as one of the worlds best photographers who has claimed the last 6 consecutive Sports Illustrated covers. I recently worked with him for a book he will be releasing Dec '10 called Culo (also shot for the book was, Lady Gaga, Paris Hilton, and production involvement are Bono of U2, Dr Dre, Will I Am & Interscope Records)
In 2009, I signed with MHP (Maximum Human Performance) supplements and became the first female Canadian athlete sponsored by the company. I now work as the rep here in Canada and visit local nutrition stores to help promote the product.
I am the owner of Perfect Presentations and Life After Competing workshops. In the Perfect Presentations workshop I educate females in the fitness industry on how to present themselves on stage including hair, makeup, suits, and most importantly confidence. My Life After Competing workshops are designed for those who have competed, wanting to compete or know someone who has competed. It is designed to educate people in the industry on how to manage your off season effectively. Topics include weight gain, obsession, depression, setting new goals, nutrition, & photoshoots
Most recently I have created a website called What It Takes (www.WhatItTakes.ca) the filming of a fitness competitors journey 24/7. Incorporating all of my background from business to my workshops, I have decided to take on my best friend and former client, Brandi Miskow, as she prepares herself for her first figure competition. I am living with her, coaching, training, assisting in her diet, teaching her posing and being there for her emotionally for 16 weeks while this is all captured on film. 12 weeks of it is preparing Brandi for the stage and 4 weeks will be following Brandi post competition and what one goes through after coming off the stage. My goal is to guide others to make decisions about competing looking into it from Brandi's point of view (the ups, downs, many emotions, dedication, determination and commitment one makes to putting themself on stage).
I am a workaholic, but I love what I do. If what I do can help someone become a better person or achieve their goal...then that is all that matters to me!
