Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Dawn 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?

It starts with being healthy mentally. As the mind goes, the body will follow. Nothing happens overnight, and if I CAN be done instantly, it can also be undone just as fast. Consistency brings results. Small positive changes turn into positive habits, that become a lifestyle.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness helps me focus, reduce stress, and has allowed me to meet some amazing people from all walks of life.

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

I would use this money to put a down payment on a life long goal of mine to open a facility that aides in understanding and educating about childhood obesity. It’s an epidemic in our country, and an issues that I see increasing daily with no resolutions. I want to educate families. Have fun activities and sports for kids in a safe environment for kids in severe states. 20,000 would allow me to find a place, get started on finding equipment and a staff that shares my vision.
