IDEA Fitness Journal article

The January 2011 issue of the IDEA Fitness Journal features a story by columnist Ryan Halvorson on my breast-cancer-to-bodybuilding story.  It focuses on the work that my trainer, Domenick Salvatore, did with me to help me rehabilitate from surgery and treatment and move forward with training. 

I have a PDF of the story and some photos.  Email me at if you want a copy!
