Sarah’s introduction to fitness began as early as the age of 5, as she played multiple sports throughout her childhood. Upon entering into high school, she was introduced to resistance training program when she took an advanced weight training course her sophomore year, one of only two girls in the class. Quickly, a love for all things fitness grew and she began trying to learn more regarding fitness and nutrition practices.
In 2011, she enlisted in the United States Army and served 3 years of active duty. It was during this time she truly started her fitness journey. After several years of reading Muscle and Fitness Hers, along with looking at the stunning photos of competitors at the back of the issues, she decided she wanted to train to compete In her first bikini show. And her first bikini prep began.
Unfortunately, due to several factors, she did not see that prep to fruition. It wasn’t until 2016 until those competitive dreams made their way back around. At this point in time, Sarah was living in Hawaii where she was introduced to a local powerlifting coach whom she began training with. While there, Sarah trained in powerlifting, olympic weightlifting, and CrossFit. Her first powerlifting meet qualified her for USPA nationals, which was her second meet. Her third local meet then qualified her for IPL Worlds; her 4th meet. She went on to compete at Single Lift Worlds the following year. She also competed in several olympic weightlifting meets and Crossfit competitions during this time.
But dreams of being on a bodybuilding stage hadn’t quite left, so after a last minute decision and an 8 week prep, she finally stepped on stage in late 2017. The experience wasn’t quite as she had hoped, but she remained optimistic with goals of competing again. It would take 5 more years before that would happen.
In 2022, Sarah began her prep on January first, with a goal of qualifying for nationals and placing top 5 there. However, she went through significant struggles in her personal life with the climax of these struggles happening at just 3 weeks out of her local show. Despite the difficulty, Sarah went on to compete, getting second place and earning the opportunity to compete at a national level show. 6 weeks later, she competed at Jr. Nationals, where she placed 9 out of 18 and determined that transitioning to figure would be her next move.
Through pursing her fitness goals through the adversity of her personal life, she saw the power that fitness held, not only for your physical health but for your mental and emotional health as well. It is with that in mind, she decided she wanted to be able to aid others through fitness to help them achieve their goals and surmount their struggles, as fitness had done for her.
Sarah is 31 years old, currently resides in Dallas TX, and has one daughter. She holds a Bachelors in Exercise Science, and hopes to have her Masters of Exercise Physiology and Nutrition Sciences completed by the end of 2023. Additionally, she has previously held a personal training and nutrition certification through ISSA, as well as the CISSN.
