Tell us more about yourself

What are your personal fitness goals?

To build lean muscle and a toned, healthy body that will be beach-ready all year round. My ultimate goal is to compete on stage, and I aspire to be a fitness model. I would also love to be featured in a magazine.

How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?

I want to expand my reach to engage women beyond my nurse-to-patient interaction and be an example to other women by showing them that leading a healthy lifestyle can prevent common conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, vitamin deficiencies, anxiety and depression.

What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?

“Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they’ve got a second.” – William James

Tell us about your fitness lifestyle

I do not believe in diets or quick fixes. I believe that slow progression equals long-lasting results. I enjoy challenges like long-distance running, cycling, HIIT fitness, hiking and weightlifting. My goal for the week is to work all muscle groups. I aim to do HIIT once a week, weightlifting 3 – 4 days a week and cardio (running, swimming, and cycling) on a Friday. I eat a balanced diet of nutritious food to keep my body healthy and nourished. I have increased my protein intake to assist with muscle gain.

Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?

I love that Biogen’s motto #BEYOURBEST. I aim to do just that… be my best so that I can help others be their best. As a registered nurse, I feel I am equipped with the knowledge to promote the Biogen brand. I also have personal training experience, which is an advantage as I understand what is required to look and feel one’s best through training. I believe in a holistic approach where one feeds the body, mind and spirit to see the best results. I have been there at the beginning of life and at the end of life, now I want to be in the middle and experience life to its fullest.

    This girl!!! The most humble being on the planet! I studied fitness with her, and always admired her! She is beautiful inside and out! And now sisters in healthcare, fighting covid together- you will find no better role model than her. If someone like her with a demanding career can do it, make no mistake that she will motivate and challenge you physically and mentally.

    Love you girl!!!
    Super proud 💛
