Who is this Samantha Shorkey chick anyway?
Well, I hate to label myself but it’s probably obvious that I’m a vegan fitness freak who’s passionate about promoting a plant-based diet to the masses!
I’m also an ACE-certified personal trainer and certified Weight Management Specialist who not only “talks the talk” but walked the walk for many years too (in 6” clear, plastic stripper shoes) as a vegan bikini competitor.
Yes, my biggest claim to “vegan fame” was winning first place in my first-ever fitness competition in 2013 then earning my pro card one year later in Austin, Texas at the INBF South Western Natural Championships– making me the first-ever vegan WNBF bikini pro!
With all of this experience under my (pleather) belt, I then released an eBook geared towards vegan bodybuilders and vegan bikini competitors called “Jacked on the Beanstalk: Plant-Based Fuel for Vegan Athletes" and published my first print cookbook in 2020 titled "The Vegan Bodybuilder's Cookbook."
I hope you dig my style and poke around my website. And please don’t be a stranger! I love hearing from other vegans or anyone who is veg-curious so hit me up at sam at jackedonthebeanstalk dot com.
