Your Background

Josephine began weight training in 1987. She served in the US Navy from 1992 until 1997. Josephine then entered college at Iowa State University where she studied Pre Medicine and Exercise Science. She became a personal trainer in 2003.

Josephine Dalton 2006 Fame Fitness Model ChampionIn 2001, Josephine Dalton began a 8 year battle with depression that included a cocaine addiction. Her addiction nearly lead to her death. "The very fact that I survived my suicide attempt (and just so you know, it was not intentional.... chemically based. I had no clue at the time) is the #1 reason why I stay motivated. I thank God every day for my 2nd chance, and I strive to not take anything for granted anymore"

By education, I am an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, specializing in body sculpting & bikini coaching for women.

I came to this great city back in November of 2005 and kinda got stuck here... seriously. I lost my home in OC while visiting my significant other at the time, so I never went back. And to be honest, I thing it was meant to be. I love this city. Where else can you get a fresh sushi roll & a sugar rimmed margarita at 3 am, or join a gym where the peak hours are from 3 pm to midnight? And where else on earth will you find models that deal blackjack and poker... and actually know what they are doing and love what they are doing?

I only recently fell back into acting. My first and only gig before was the lead role as Emily in "The Ransom of Emily Jane" where I (yes, a Eurasian with black hair) played a little smart mouth redneck redhead kid. And then I did nothing until the summer of 2009.  Frustrated with the economy; nobody was hiring models for tradeshows anymore and the market got flooded with even more "models" (the Vegas term for a girl who just happens to look good or look easy).  I went from 2-4 tradeshows a month, to one every season and the pay went down to less than half of what it used to be.  After a year of encouragement, my agent Dave convinced me to cross over into acting.  Within the first 4 months of acting, my instructors raved about my natural abilities and I landed a fitness commercial, 3 callbacks and one part in a movie (that was actually written for me AFTER I auditioned).  I think I found a new skill!

Facts about me:

  • I love champagne & chocolate covered strawberries
  • I collect bikinis
  • My favorites restaurants will always be Hooters & Cracker Barrell
  • I have a 10 year old named Katie... purr purr
  • I am a recovering cocaine addict & I survived a suicide of drug induced drowning
  • I've lived in 11 different cities in my life
  • I collect Nike shoes & lipsticks
  • I adore Angelina Jolie & Catherine Zeta Jones
  • I think Zachary Quinto is HOT
  • I am an iPhone & gadget addict
  • My roommate is 11 years younger than me
  • I drive a Honda, but would prefer a BMW
