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

Don’t be so hard on yourself! Enjoy the journey!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I get to work with people with all health and fitness levels, including those with Parkinson’s disease. To see the positive attitudes of people living with a disease there is no cure is truly inspirational. I am honored to have the opportunity to help make a better quality of life for people.

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

With the recent tragic death of my fiancé, I would help a cause very dear to his heart. We have started a scholarship fund called Pineapples & Flamingos to help Veterans with Parkinson’s disease!
