She is a native of Arizona,
born and raised there, growing playing sports
and has always been involved with health and fitness. Felicia ran track and
played volleyball and softball in High School and College, her family is
extremely athletic so it was only natural for her to excel in sports.
She graduated from ASU in 2004 with a B.A. degree in Political
Science and aspirations for law school. But during her years in college she
became a certified personal trainer and opened up her first personal training
studio in Mesa, AZ.
Felicia first became a trainer to help get her through college
financially, but as the business flourished it became a big part of her life.
She says that she has always loved fitness but when she helped change the bodies
and lives of so many women, she knew that was really where she wanted to focus
"I entered my first figure competition in 2005 and I loved
everything about it. I loved the lifestyle; I loved the mental toughness that I
had gained as well as the ability to really transform my body with diet and
exercise. From there, I competed in three more competitions and the last being
my first national pro show in 2006 in Las Vegas. I took first place in my class
and turned pro. I couldn’t believe that I had turned pro at my very first
national show. That moment was truly a great moment in my life because I wasn’t
expecting that at all. I didn’t set out to turn pro… I just really loved
competing. Although getting my pro card was definitely icing on the cake." said
Her life has been in constant positive change since turning
She has won FIVE pro shows, the most recent being the 2011
Top 4 in the 2011 Figure International, top 5 Figure
International 2009 and 2010

"Currently, my business partner Whitney Jones and I have
opened up AZ Pro Physiques in Gilbert, Arizona. It is a 6000 sq ft studio where
we do one on one training as well as group personal training. We have 18
trainers that work for us and have helped hundreds of men and women lose weight
and keep it off!! " said Felicia.
"Felicia is a definite example of not taking no for an answer
and believing in yourself, her Mom has been her biggest fan and she showed her
daughter that life is what you make of it. She has made her own path in her
fitness career and academic activities and now she is prepared to take on new
challenges whether it be in modeling, fitness or even the world of Hollywood. I
have no doubt that she will accomplish whatever she sets her mind to, just look
at what she has done to date, the future is very bright for this champion,"
