What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

Stop worrying about others and do this for you! Nobody else is going to make your goals happen unless you do! It’s never too late to start...ever! Did I say don’t worry about others? You’d be surprised where the “most fit” person in the gym started from. Believe in you!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has changed my life! I’ve always struggled with confidence. Being over weight and insecure held me back. I began bodybuilding 2012 I dreamed of becoming a bikini competitor. 2016 I made it happen. Many years of never giving up and keeping that end goal in site. I failed many times but I made it! I want to show others they’re no different than I am! If I can, you can.As someone who deals with anxiety and depression, fitness is my therapy! It has truly saved my life.

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

Money aside, the chance of being in Muscle and Fitness her would be a dream come true! The prize money would assist me in pursuing my dreams of competing ,at this time in my life competing is something I’ve had to put off because of the expense. It would also assist me in paying for college. Most importantly help family, especially my mother-in- law who has been such a support to my husband and myself.
