Born in Greenville, South Carolina but raised in Sulphur, La. I am one of seven children whom of which were all extremely athletic, so innately I was forced to contribute to our  family’s extracurricular trophy cabinet. A ‘diamond in the rough’ is the metaphor used once my running abilities and talents were discovered. They used this metaphor cause I literally attempted EVERY sport and consistently, excuse me, I mean FAITHFULLY rode the bench. But from the moment I stepped on the track that agonizing pain of sitting on the bench until my feet and legs fell asleep came to a screeching  halt. Louisiana’s  5-time 800 meter state champion with a Mayor proclaim ‘Mary Newton Day’  graciously accepted a FULL athletic AND academic scholarship to The prestigious Southern university A & M college to continue her track career and obtain a Bachelors and Masters in Speech and Language Pathology.
A crawfish hunting, gumbo eating, barefooted tomboy turned IFBB Bikini Pro who traded in her track spikes and Nike trainers for a pair of bedazzled high heels. Hi there, it’s so nice to meet you.
