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

Find balance and do what makes you happy but be consistent. whether it be a specific goal like a fitness show, yoga, jogging with friends taking a group class or even cycling in a neighborhood ride group just be consistent. Have a plan and stick to it. Pick foods you enjoy, eat in moderations. Know your limits.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It has given me a reason to love my body and show my children and other working mothers that it is possible to stay healthy, have a career and be a great mentor to all ages. Saying Healthly and trying new ways to stay fit is a lifestyle. I want to inspire people of all ages to find ways to keep it simple and incorporate health and fitness into their schedules and find balance long term.

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

I would like to invest the money into a program that works with teenagers to get them off the electronics and back into the fields afterschool I would create a program that kids locally could sign up for a program to help them with strength, conditioning and nutrition training even if they are not athletic. I want to encourage them to stay off of electronic devices away from video games /phones and be kids again and enjoy the outdoors! Teach them about healthly snacks and good healthy habits !
