There are no shortcuts in life. Through fitness and beyond, I strive to inspire others to be the best they can be. Growth never ends.

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

Do it for you, know that it doesn’t happen overnight and only with consistency will you see results and it’ll become easier to make it a lifestyle. Keep a circle of healthy and fit individuals close even if they can only be found through social media.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Only through a keystone habit of staying fit do other good habits follow. I eat better, keep bad toxins out, create more energy, have more positivity and feel confident all day long!

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

I would pay off the last half of my college debt and pay fees for my two children to try various fitness and educational extracurricular activities. I would also purchase equipment for a mini home gym to help train friends!
