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

Try to stay focused on attainable goals and the small daily victories like being able to move more easily or spend more time playing with your kids or grandkids. Being fit and healthy is a lifetime commitment to being your best self.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

It has been my saving grace since a teen. Having struggled with a severe eating disorder for years and then throughout my pregnancy as well, I turned to fitness as my outlet. It makes me feel great every day to feel strong and capable. I want to be a great role model for my daughter and other young girls who may be struggling as I did.

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

I would invest in my education to be better able to help others and so that I could commit my time, full-time to my passion of assisting others attain their goals and find their healthy, happy path.
