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

Have GOALS! Always have something that keeps your fire lit. Remember goals are personal, so don’t let others influence what is important to you. Small goals always lead to big results.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

First and foremost I’m a devoted wife and proud mother of two beautiful children. Health and fitness is more than just a lifestyle for me, it is a genuine passion. I started running long distance in 2011 and now I compete in obstacle races. For the last three years I have used my talents to help others. I push wheelchairs in local road races with a group called Ainsleys Angels. I also volunteer three times a week with a local organization that provides care for adults with disabilities.

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

I would use the money toward the organization I volunteer for and go on an adventure with my family.
