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

I would recommend anyone who wants to be fit and healthy to begin today! To set any fears & excuses aside & to believe that they can. And if they don't know where to start, to get a professional in the field, that will provide them with knowledge for a lifetime.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has changed my life: physically & emotionally. It hasn't just changed my appearance, but my approach to life. It has giving me strength, physically & mentally. But it has also allowed me to live an energized life with my family, and it has given me hope, specially suffering with spina bifida oculta.

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

I would put some of it towards debt and family expenses like my kid's braces,etc, but I would enjoy some of it of course with my loved ones, perhaps on a vacation trip that we've always dreamed of, and definitely I would give some of it back into the community. I am a big fan of sharing our wealth (financially, emotionally & in knowledge).
