If you could change into a superhero for a day who would you be and why?
I’d have to say Wonder Woman because not only is she a warrior princess of the amazons, she’s gifted with superhuman powers and has a secret identity as an army nurse. She’s the epitome of strength and power while still keeping her look feminine as she fights crime and saves the world all in a day’s work.
What made you begin dedicating your lifestyle to this sport?
As co-owner of dietary supplement manufacturing company, Muscle Gauge Nutrition, I have become completely immersed in the science (and now sport) of the supplement industry. My background is in Chemical Engineering with a BS and MS from Drexel University and I started my career with DuPont before I moved onto bio-tech and nutraceuticals. I’ve always enjoyed running to relieve work stress and began training for marathons as I function best when I have a specific end goal. When I became co-owner of Muscle Gauge Nutrition in 2010 as the food scientist and plant manager, my business partners introduced me to workout regimes primarily based on weight training with high intensity interval training for cardio. I became hooked and loved how a workout could be done in as little as 45 minutes as opposed to logging miles and miles with marathon training. It didn’t take long to see changes to my figure by taking protein supplements and working out regularly. I see people’s lives changed on a regular basis from improved nutrition and moderate exercise and I aspire to motivate many more to benefit from the life changing effects. Not only do I formulate the products in the Muscle Gauge Nutrition line, I use them in my competition prep and am very proud of the quality products we offer consumers at an affordable price.
