I am a 36 year old personal trainer and a mom of four at Anytime Fitness. I have went a long ways to find my passion for helping others.

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

I would let people know that this is a lifestyle and you need to take it one breathe at time, one day at a time, and one rep at a time. It takes time to make lasting changes and but every small goal accomplished is a big step into a healthy lifestyle change. When people talk about failing themselves I let them know it is only failure if they stop and never try again. But they woke ready to try again...that’s winning.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness changed my life. It started as a stress reliever from my mother getting sick and turned into a way to help others to try and prevent sickness. It has helped me find myself and my strength in this world. Now my children are exceptional, athletic, and have that same fire and positivity.

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

If I were to win that money I would invest in my career more education and make sure my kids could have more opportunities to go farther with their dreams.
