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

Focus your energy on being healthy on the inside and not “looking” healthy. Your health is everything and people in retirement spend all their money they worked their entire lives for trying to get it back. Take vitamins and eat the right foods. Don’t eat for fun or because you’re bored. Eat for sustenance and work hard to build muscle which increases your resting metabolic rate so you burn fat sitting down at your job. Calories in vs. calories out!!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I have so much more energy than I did in my 20’s. I am more agile and have more endurance to perform better at my job and at home as a mother to my four year old daughter. I feel younger than I am and others admire my discipline when it comes to my diet and my exercise regime. As a health care provider, it suits me to be healthy and to be the best version of myself that I can be.

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

I would invest in real estate and put the money down toward a home that my family could call all our own. I want to be able to provide my daughter with a legacy I can pass onto her and give her a safe and loving home in a safe neighborhood with good schools.
