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

I encourage everyone to start with realistic short-term goals and then develop long-term goals.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has challenged me to become stronger physically but mentally as well. It has given me a chance to see how far I can push myself. It has given me a chance to positively influence women to become stronger and healthier. Training has been a healthy outlet for so many things in my life.

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

Being a single mom, I would save most of it to help purchase my first home for my daughter and I. I would also donate to a local food pantry that provided underprivileged families food boxes. I've been a service provider in the mental health field working with underprivileged clients. Giving back to my community is something that is so rewarding.
