You have performed modern dance and hold a degree in nursing; You are an avid fitness enthusiast and NPC competitor. Later you took to start your career in modeling. This propelled your fitness modeling career to the height where you have been at the top of the world of fitness, fashion, and glamour modeling. Tell us something about this fairy tale journey?
Lol, there is no such thing as a fairytale journey for anyone. It is all about hard work, the determination to succeed and being persistent and never giving up no matter how hard things get.
Dance was part of my life at an early age and I worked hard to excel at it because I was good and got recognized for my efforts. That seems to be my mantra all through life as I was always hungry to learn and grow and excel to be the best I could be. Coming here from Mexico I learned if I didn’t work hard for what I wanted, I could have the alternative and that was nothing. So the decision to learn to work hard was an easy one to make. That work ethic remains with me today and those who know me they will tell you I am very driven because failure is not an option for me.
In the end I attribute much of my success to my mum who gave me good genetics and helped me to value myself, thus building in me a strong character which has been the basis for my inspiration and motivation that drive me every day. I love her so much she is my hero and my best friend.
You have to move to different countries for your professional career. For a fitness model adjusting to new countries with their own cultures, it must be difficult and then to adjust with modeling career in the new foreign land, what advice you can give to fellow models in a similar situation?
I love learning about new cultures and really enjoy meeting and connecting with people. I have met some amazing people on my travels and appreciate the service I have received in many locations I have visited. It can be difficult adjusting to changes in time zones and eating new things, but I always embrace the culture and am very excited to try all the foods and to experience the best each culture has to offer. I hope to travel the world more and experience more cultures in the years to come. My advice to others is to find the simple things about the culture like their food and beliefs. It fascinates me how each culture values food and relationships
You are a world-leading media personality, fitness model, Elite Athlete, entrepreneur, and brand ambassador. How do you manage such a remarkable multi-dimensional lifestyle?
I have been very fortunate to have a great team of people around me behind the scenes. They take care of so many things related to business, legal, travel, web site, training, etc. I also have some great partnerships with companies who have been great to work with and I appreciate everyone so much who has been there for me in this journey. However even with all the help I still work very long days and it seems it is hard to ever get caught up. It is normal for me to go to bed at 2 am and to not have time to do many things I want to do. But like I always say there is a price to pay if you want to be successful and if you begin to make excuses to not do what needs to be done it will affect the results of what you want to achieve.
What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you may wish to share?
As it relates to exercise I am usually mixing it up. I am part of Team Elite Fitness based in Denver coached by Adam Bonilla. They provide world class support to me in my diet and training through my travel, contest preparation and even during COVID. Depending on whether I am in my off season, doing photo shoots, or in training for a contest they will adjust all aspects of my diet and training to help me stay on track.
I have also learned to be creative with my diet and exercise routine based on what is available to me. When you can’t keep to your regular routine you need to find ways to. Be creative and stay on track.
