Title: Owner of Blink Mattress, Ms. Arizona State 2016

Age: 53

Married/Single: Single

Kids: 3

City you live in: Mesa

A typical day in my life includes…

I own 3 retail mattress stores in AZ and that keeps me very busy! I start my day in the gym at 4:30am until 6:30 then home to get my kids Saylor, 15 and Sutton, 13 off to school. I then head back to Pro Physique at least 3 times a week for a booty circuit class that is amazing and intense by anyone’s standards! I leave there for work until 6pm and head home to get dinner and spend some time with my kids and my boyfriend Tyler. Often Tyler and I will go for a walk at night and get caught up on the day .

I was born…

in Spokane, Washington.

My favorite thing about Arizona is…

the amazing wildlife. Bobcats, javalina, bunnies, even rattlesnakes are all over around our neighborhood! And the weather.

I’m listening to

right now I find rap and new pop hits are my top on my workout playlist . I love Chainsmokers and any song with the word “booty” in it apparently lol.

My family…

is everything to me, especially my 3 kids. Everything else is second to my love for them.

If I could have dinner with anyone it would be…

my Grandmother who passed several years ago. I miss how funny she was!

The one thing I can live without is…

the gym. My day has to have it in there somewhere for me to be able to feel complete.

When I was younger I wanted to be…

a TV broadcaster for a news station. I still dream of that job – you never know!

I’m inspired by…

my daughters . Saylor and Trisha. They have both become such amazing young women and it makes me want to do my best everyday.

The one person who motivates me…

Saylor. When she was 12 she was in a terrible roll over accident that cost her the use of her right dominant hand . Seeing all she has gone through motivates me to never quit.

If I could change anything in the word it would be…

childhood hunger. It kills me that kids go to bed hungry at night when there is more than enough nutritious food out there to feed them all.

My perfect day would be…  

hit the gym , have breakfast with my family (I don’t have to clean up the mess), shopping with my girls, lunch  and massages with my best friends.  Then dinner with my BF and a long walk before bed!

My first job was…

a waitress at a small cafe . I was terrible at it but I got free french fries so I tried hard to keep it going as long as I could, lol.

My favorite escape…

is my training . For that hour or two nothing else enters in. It’s the one part of the day that is just for me and I can put everything else out of my mind.

Favorite Quote…

“A man/women’s worth is not measured by the abundance of his/her wealth” – Luke 12:15

Always…

forgive quickly because it is a gift you give yourself.

Never…

forget to  take care of your body and mind. You only get one!

My life…

has been all over the place . I have had little and I have had much. The one thing I know for sure is I know how to live either way – and that’s a good feeling! Out of all the things I have accomplished, having three beautiful children is by far the most amazing! I am SO blessed!

I am currently working on…

opening my third mattress store, Blink Mattress Experts in Gilbert, while training to compete in my first bikini Fitness competition with help from my trainer Artie Cook at Pro Physique! So excited!

Biggest dream…

to grow my business to 8 locations . Continue to train and strengthen my body for competition and build my future with the one I love.

Pet peeve/s…

is people judging another’s situation when they have never been in their shoes. Be a light in someone’s life – a kind word can change an entire outcome.
