Who do you aspire to be like and why?
I wouldn’t say I have any one person in particular that I aspire to be like, I like to think of it more as learning from all those around me and working on becoming a better version of myself every day that seems true to me. As much as I admire many others I strongly believe in becoming your own person and aspiring to have certain qualities that fall within your values, vision and purpose. I aspire to be a person that is always honest to others and to myself, one that isn’t afraid to speak her mind and to always try to find the positive and learning opportunity in a “bad” situation.
How do you want people to remember you?
This ties in a lot to the last question, I hope that people remember me as a kind person who truly embraced who she is. One that worked hard to get what she wants in life and was never complacent or just waiting for something “more” to happen. I believe a big part of my purpose is to help others to live their best life, so I hope that I am able to touch someone’s life in that positive sort of way.
What is your greatest achievement in life so far?
Being the go-getter that I am, this is a challenging one for me as I am always looking for that next step or goal and never really feeling settled or like anything is complete. One thing I would say though is the lifestyle switch I made from my early adulthood is something I am very proud of and think about often. Eliminating a ton of negativity from my life made me a much less stressed human and better able to create stronger bonds with my friends and family.
What are the most important values in life, in your opinion?
Sincerity- Not just saying something because you feel you have to, actually meaning it when you say it!
Honesty-Being honest to everyone. Lying is hurtful and does no one any good. Be honest to yourself and to those around you, your life will be way less full of drama and you will be able to better embrace who you are.
Health- Keeping your body healthy by eating foods that fuel you and exercising are key factors in living your best life. It’s these two things that have helped me keep anxiety and stress levels at bay. As the saying goes, you can’t help others if you can’t help yourself.
Communication- Regular and healthy communication in all relationships and aspects of your life can prevent any unnecessary drama by making sure that everyone is on the same page and that things don’t get misinterpreted or expectations are not met. Body language may say a lot, but in the end, we aren’t mind readers. Talk to each other, face to face whenever possible!

A little about me:
I am a wife, mother (son -6) and step mother (daughter -21, son -19), I have been a “mostly” stay at home mom since I had my son, but working part time when I felt like I needed out of the house for my mental stability. I have a background in Sales, Business Administration, Marketing, Makeup Artistry, Skincare and Cosmetics. I also recently completed my fitness certificates for The Brand X Method and Crossfit Level 1 Trainer. I consider myself a lifelong learner of everything and anything that sparks my interest.
What motivates you to stay healthy?
I am motivated to stay healthy mostly for my mental and emotional well-being, but I am also motivated by setting an example for my kids, particularly the smallest one. He is not the kind of kid who has shown any interest in sports, so I really want him to know that there are many different ways to be active and healthy in life, and that health is more than just “looking good” it's also mental and emotional health as well.
What is something that you have done recently to help others?
I have just finished decorating my house for the holidays, and we have a lot of extra ornaments and an extra tree that I have donated to a family in need so they can have a nice tree for Christmas this year. I am always willing to help someone that needs a hand, I wear my heart on my sleeve, and even though I have been burned, I don't let it taint my ability to help others.
Can you tell us a little bit about your athletic background/what sports or type of fitness you do?
I am probably one of the most unathletic people I know. I was never into sports growing up, I found my activity through dance. I did ballet very young, then jazz, and eventually I turned to hip-hop when I was 13. I started working out at a “circuit gym” when I was 19 because I put on the freshman 50 (almost) instead of 15 at college. My weight went up and down through my mid 20’s until I found kickboxing at Zuma. I took one trial class, and I was instantly hooked, I went back the next day and signed up. At my peak time there, I was doing 7-8 hours a week, I was obsessed!! Then I became pregnant and found it very hard to get back into the gym, we moved off the island and life was different. When we moved back I tried another kickboxing place and I enjoyed it for awhile, but eventually I was bored. Then I did a 6 week challenge at a crossfit gym (not using barbells) and I was hooked. I was in love with the community and friendships at the gym, and I wanted to use the barbell so bad, so I made the leap and “crossed over” to crossfit. One year later, I am the strongest I have ever been mentally, and physically.
What would you say to someone who is trying to start living a healthier lifestyle?
Baby steps! All small changes lead to the bigger ones. I still struggle to not eat like a jerk, but if I can even make one better decision at any meal or snack, that’s better than none. As for exercise, try to think of it more like a privilege that you get to work out, than a punishment. It will help with your mindset just getting in the car to get to the gym.
What do you think the world needs most at this time in history?
Now and forever, my answer will always be kindness. Simple, basic, kindness. A smile, holding the door, helping someone pick up something they dropped, little things like that mean so much.
Do you set goals? Will you share those goals with us?
I constantly set goals, yearly ones, and break them down, most of which lately have been fitness related. I am working on next year’s goals...but I can’t tell yet!!
What are 5 quick facts that your best friend would use to introduce you?
Kind of quirky, very loving and affectionate (lots of hugs to go around!), loyal (don't hurt my family or friends), sarcastic, and quiet until she gets to know you, (I like to observe my surroundings before I come out of my shell.)
