Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
Any and everything I haven’t mastered yet. I like to challenge and push myself. I love weight training and that has been my fitness love for many years. I will be expanding into other fields soon for my own fitness, such as boxing and functional fitness. Ultimately I want to become the best version of myself, mentally and physically!
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
To understand that we are all unique. I want to tell women to stop comparing ourselves to others and rather be inspired to become the best versions of ourselves, for ourselves! I will be open, honest, raw and real by opening up about my past or current struggles. I have found this helps other women in one way or another. We can all learn from each other and it’s okay to not be okay.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
Your mind can be your best friend or worst enemy…choose your thoughts carefully.
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
My fitness lifestyle is my passion and also my job. I started training for mental health and I now love weight training. With music on, I can train for hours. It’s my happy space. I maintain a healthy diet but I do love a glass of wine and a pizza here and there.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I live to inspire and help others in any way possible. Becoming the Biogen Face of Fitness will really help expand my reach to inspire and help women. I am open and honest about who I am and what I have been through. I struggle with depression and anxiety, but it does not define who I am. I live and I learn to be able to help inspire others. Fitness has helped me in more ways than I can describe. And I want others to see and experience it too.
