BIO: I was born on the island of Curaçao and lived there for 15 years before relocating to the United Stated in 1994 with my mom and two younger siblings. Growing up I was always an active child. From the time I was 10 years old, I was on the local swimming team and also ran track and field internationally for the Netherlands Antilles.
After moving to the United States I ran track for Coconut Creek High School in South Florida. Despite encountering leg injuries in my track and field career, I did not give up on remaining physically active. In 2003 after my son Triston was born, I became even more active and dedicated to pushing my physical limits.
In 2013 I was challenged by a fitness friend to compete and my response was, “I don’t think I can, that will take up a lot of time and I won’t be able to commit”. My friend did not take that for an answer and responded with, “You of all people, always motivating others to not give up and go for what you want, are now telling me that you cannot do this? I challenge you!”
I then decided to try, and did not shy away from the opportunity. I took on my first challenge on June 1st of 2013, and by August 10th I was ready and confident for my first NGA Flamingo competition in Miami. I proved to myself that nothing was going to stop me from pushing through to achieve my goals.
Today I focus on being a dedicated and driven athlete, fueled by the passion for being healthy and fit. As a single mom, it is about more than self-improvement and reaching fitness goals. It is about setting a great example for our children as well as others. It has been a rough but rewarding journey that continues to be met with enthusiasm and drive.
Whether you want to compete or not, I believe that living a healthy lifestyle is extremely important, and I am looking forward to many more competitions and great journeys ahead”.
My motto is and will always be ‘DIM’ – Dedicate, Inspire & Motivate!
