I am a 36 year old mother of two amazing kids. I am an HR director, I have a BBA, a MPA from the university of NM and I love Fitness!

Placed 34th

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

Never compare your fitness journey to others and always remember change takes time. Put in the effort and you will see the results

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness has made me a happier person. It has help me gain back my confidence, has made me feel goof about what i see on the outside as well as what is found within. I feel stronger mentally, physically and spiritually and it all started when i fell in love with fitness.

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

Pay a year or two of gym memberships and take my kids on a nice week vacation. Probably save the rest or pay down some bills.
