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

To make fitness and health apart of your everyday lifestyle. I like to live by the motto of “ Being Pretty Fit is a Lifestyle not a Trend”. To encourage men and women to stop just doing it for a quick fix like a vacation, a wedding, a trip or special occasion. Treat everyday like you’re preparing for something!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has helped to positively influence my life mentally, physically, and spiritually. It has helped to keep me motivated and stay strong in a lot of tough situations in my life. It has helped be my outlet my vice. I also love it because it helps me stay connected to my boys, my family, and my community. It has been a positive thing I can look forward to, to create everlasting memories. As well as to instill so many great character traits in myself that I can help influence others.

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

If I was the next Ms Health and Fitness I would put back into my community. I would recreate a fitness studio here in Florida just like I did back in Maryland. I would re create a facility that is family oriented, fun, and about creating a fitness community of support, guidance, and life long friendships. I would also start a non profit organization that would give back to women of physical and mental domestic abuse. I would have a program that I would offer fitness classes to rebuild them.
