Passionate about my life, even in the hard moments. I love my students, which I get to teach everyday. My family means everything to me.

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

Never give up. Push yourself when you feel like giving up. You only live one life. Make it the best life for you.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It gives me the energy I need to be the best teacher I can be. My husband and I love working out and eating right it's apart of our bond together.

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

That's a tough question. I would have to think about that for a while before making that decision.
