I was born in Los Angeles, CA and raised in San Diego. I was lucky because my father was in the Navy but we never were stationed anywhere else and I love my city. My husband, Eddie Directo and I have no plans of leaving either!
Currently, I am in my last year of school at CSU San Marcos and I am set to graduate in the spring of 2015. I have a goal to become a community health nurse because I refuse to be confined to a hospital setting. I love to educate people about health and nutrition and I have high hopes of being able to do this within my own community. I am a true believer of our abilities to prevent degenerative diseases so I feel that it is my duty, with all the knowledge I have acquired through school, to transmit this knowledge to as many people as I can.
I have been constantly trying to stay fit and healthy since I was in high school and earlier this year I decided to make a tangible goal for myself in regards to my physiques. I decided that competing in my first NPC show would be that goal so this past May(2014) I stepped on stage for the first time and placed 5th in the Open Bikini Class C division. It was an amazing experience and was personally such a great accomplishmnet for myself. I plan to reap the benefits of this experience to help young women so that they can make similar goals for themselves to increase their confidence and reach their optimal phyical and nutritional goals.
I truly believe that when a woman feels great about herself, she is capable of handling anything that comes her way!
