A couple months ago, I was forced to make some big life changes when I had to stop playing college soccer due to a knee injury. Shortly after having stopped playing, I was allured into the world of fitness and NPC bikini competitions. I had always loved working out and competing, so I thought NPC competitions would be a good fit. Even though I knew a bikini competition was something I wanted to try, I had no idea how to pose on a stage, much less walk in heels without stumbling. My prep coach, Rachel Scheer, had been trained by Jodi Miller for two years while she had been competing at the national level in Bikini competitions, and greatly recommended I work with Jodi for one on one posing sessions. Thanks to Jodi, in the short time of about 5 weeks, she helped me gain the confidence and ability to perform on stage which led to me taking home first in Open Bikini and Novice for my first NPC competition and becoming nationally qualified. There is no way, NO way I could have done it without all of her help and support and I am so thankful for everything that she has done for me. Not only did she help put me together a fantastic routine blended with class and matching my own personality, but she was there for me with the behind the scenes for things like tanning suggestions, makeup suggestions, and all kinds of advice. I am so thankful to have Jodi in my life and for all of the support she has given me. I can’t wait keep learning from her and to see what we can do together!
