I'm an entrepreneur by trade, a fitness junkie by heart and part mermaid in spirit. I love Harry Potter, coffee and anything red velvet!

Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Amber Morningstar and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!

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

Play the long game. If you get into fitness for a short term result then you'll have a long line of disappointment and frustration. Great results come with time, consistency and dedication. Skip the starvation diets and endless cardio and focus on a sustainable way of reaching your goals that includes the foods you love and lifting some weights! <3

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has helped me to come out of my shell and be confident in who I am both inside and out. If you had asked me 6 years ago if I'd enter into something like this my answer would be HECK NO! I was super shy and self-conscious growing up but fitness has helped me learn to love myself. Nothing beats the feeling of hitting a new PR in the gym or seeing your body change as you go through phases of adding muscle or losing fat. It's really a beautiful thing.

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

I would donate a portion to a charity focused on helping people with mental health and addiction issues as I've personally lost friends because of their addictions. I'd buy some new toys for my doggos and cats, send some gifts to friends and family and save the rest to invest in my dream home which I hope to get within the next year.
