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

It’s a process. You have to mentally be ready. Honestly the mental part of change is the hardest. Once you commit to starting a fit and healthy lifestyle consistency is going to get you results. Stay consistent! Stay positive! And never give up!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness influences every aspect of my life. Since I was young athletics has been the biggest part of my life and still is today. It’s given me structure and discipline. It allows me to reach and achieve personal goals. Giving fitness to others to influence their life is my true passion. Helping my clients achieve their fitness goals to positively influence their life is one of the best feelings. It truly is what keeps me motivated.

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

I’m going to be brutally honest(If you know me then you know that’s how I am) i wish I could say I’d donate this amount and that amount.. but I’m going to pay bills first. I’d absolutely love to send my parents on a vacation. They really deserve that.
