My Life Story in a Nutshell

  • I am one of those crazy creative people who can sing, dance, act, play piano, draw detailed designs and paint beautiful landscapes.
  • I met and fell in love with my husband Lucas when we were performing in the musical, “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” when I was 17.
  • When I was 18, I moved to NYC and attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy for Musical Theatre – I graduated in 2004.
  • Like many creative people, I struggled with a lot of issues: severe depression and anxiety, excessive stress and addiction.
  • By the time I was 19 I was addicted to drugs, the worst of it was meth!
  • Soon after I turned 20, I left NYC (and the drugs) to be with Lucas!
  • I have been clean from meth since June, 2005! Praise God!!!!!!!!!
  • We were married October 15th, 2005
  • Lucas deployed to Iraq in June 2006 for 15 looooooong months.
  • While he was gone, I hired a personal trainer and nutritionist, got healthy, lost 40lbs, knew I needed to help others get healthy, completed my personal training certfication, bought us a house in WA state and opened up a personal training studio with another trainer. Whew!
  • Jan 2nd, 2009 our first son, Bear was born. We spent the first 10 days of his life in the NICU, he has a rare condition called Arthrogryposis, which means stiff-contracted joints in multiple locations from birth.
  • Bear has overcome every challenge and now at 8 years old, he can not only function independently, he is pretty much unstopable!
  • God brought me back to Him and I was baptized in July 2010!
  • After Bear was born I competed in a few Figure Competitions
  • I won my first show, my second show was the International Arnold Amateur, where I came in 2nd – my third show was Nationals in Atlanta, where I won my IFBB Pro Card – it was crazy!
  • Lucas deployed again in 2012, this time to Afghanistan for nine months.
  • We got pregnant right away when he returned, and our second son Kai was born October 1st, 2013!
  • Our plans to stay and retire from the Army changed when Lucas’s knee injury caused him to be medically discharged.
  • We moved back to Pennsylvania where we now live with family all around us!
  • I was approached by a Financial Advisory Firm to become a Financial Advisor — totally out of left field, but learning how to manage money well has aways been something I have wanted to know, and pass on to my children, so after three interviews, I said yes to their offer.
  • I have completed FINRA’s Series 6 and 63 Securities Licenses and PA Life and Health Insurance License
  • I am also now a student at Lancaster Bible College, pursuing a degree in Biblical Studies.
  • Bringing all of my education and experience together, I am on a mission to help women prosper in all ways – their Faith, Finances, Fitness, Family, Marriage, Career and have FUN!
