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

You have to love yourself to be the best you can be. You cannot get the body you want by hating it. Follow your gut instincts about what you need, look holistically at your body, don't go for quick fixes. Move as much as you can, eat whole foods, think positively always. Surround yourself with people who want the same.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Im a Paramedic and fitness is the biggest influence in my life. You just feel so good when you fit and strong. I need to lift and carry sick people, I need to be healthy and fit or I cannot look after anyone else. I need to walk the walk when it comes to leading people who also want to be fit and healthy. I also love leading other Medics, Police, Fire Rescue and Defence Personnel to better health and fitness.

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

I would put all of it into traveling to hold free workshops for women who want to know more about their bodies and their health and fitness from a Paramedic and Fitness Coach! This would include free programming and nutritional information. Hopefully we could reach millions! I want other women to feel good about themselves. That's my plan now and I would love Ms Health & Fitness to join me on this crusade x
