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

Stay faithful and consistent! Results take time and you can't rush or "trick" the process. Keep a positive mind set, and remember to safe guard ypur mental and emotional health as well!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness gave me back my life. I had a long bout with depression following the sudden death of my mother in 2014, fitness returned me to my strength and gave me hope for a brighter future.

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

I would use the money to first give back to recovery movement, it has been invaluable in my development as a woman of strength and dignity. I would also use the money to complete my licensing and education so I could further serve in my role as a substance abuse counselor.
