To have a strong, healthy toned body.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I am a working mom with two daughters. It’s very difficult to be a mom and manage work and a household. I find that keeping fit not only increases energy levels but it gives me much-needed confidence. When we fill our cup by taking care of our bodies as busy working moms, we are able to give a better us to our kids, husbands/partners and employers. I would encourage all working moms to start and continue to make keeping fit a priority by leading and healthy/ lifestyle.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?

Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
I play tennis regularly and watch what I eat. I believe food is medicine. I drink plenty of water and do short workouts daily, such as skipping, squats and lifting weights. My teenage daughter is an athlete and she inspires and pushes me to do body conditioning with her about 3 times a week. This allows me to also spend time with her.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I stand for women taking care of their bodies, loving themselves and being confident in who they are. I am all for improving and becoming better daily, and keeping fit is one way to do this – it’s a self esteem booster. Anyone with a great self esteem can influence and impact lives positively.
