Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
I am a fan of functional training and plyometrics. My goal is to better myself in these two training styles. I would like to improve on my speed and strength, which will result in power. I would also like to improve on my mobility and balance. I would like to jump higher and be able to do a pistol squat without falling.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I believe that fitness is more than just looking good as we gain so much more. We should strive to build healthy bodies to be confident and self-loving. Fitness teaches us patience, perseverance, endurance, the need to progress, and the ability to plan. Taken into the real world these are the tools that are required for one to be a Boss Lady. An ambassadorship will give me the platform to bring more light on these aspects of fitness. I will show ladies that fitness is more than superficial – it can be the key to greatness.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
We move together.
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
My fitness lifestyle is very basic and balanced. I exercise 3-4 times a week and I recently started running again. I got most of my physical activity from teaching group exercise classes and working as a Fitness Instructor. I focus on meeting my nutritional requirements that would normally align with the goal I would be working on at that specific time. I also leave room to discover other aspects of life. I enjoy training with a friend as much as I enjoy drawing stick figures and calling them art.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I am an exceptional woman that has a fire within. I would love to help bring out the same fire in other women. I have a healthy, strong, confident, self-loving body that has the power, skill and will to teach, encourage, and build. I am a perfectly imperfect bubbly fitness bunny that is building my masterpiece and I would love to build it with as many people as I can. I believe my voice should be given a platform to be heard and for this reason, I believe I can be the next Biogen Face of Fitness.
