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

I would recommend you find a balanced approach. Also, know your goals and write them down. Once your goal is on paper, then you can take it to action. Create a plan and go for it. Give it your heart. If you do these simple things, you are sure to have success.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has changed my life forever. It's about so much more than just appearance. It's about mental health, body image, confidence, and the ability to inspire others. Through my journey I have been able to impact so many lives and now I am helping others in their very own journey. That is where the real magic is at.

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

First of all, I would expand my already established Shell Fitness Scholarship fund to award more students this next school year ! Impacting my community and making a difference is one of the biggest motivators I have. With whatever funds were left, I would take my amazing family on a fun outdoor vacation. We are a very tight family and they deserve a little getaway.
