What does it mean to you to be chosen as a Woman of Influence by the T.J. Martell Foundation?

Incredibly honored and humbled.  I hope I can send a message to women of all ages out there to be persistent and relentless in achieving your goals.

What piece of advice would you give to young women today to inspire them to follow their dreams?

Work hard, stay humble, stand firm for what you believe in, listen, lead change.

What steps do you take to make health and wellness a priority in your life?

Try to eat well/clean–use fresh natural ingredients in my food, get enough sleep and have an active life style—get out in nature and regular exercise (which is the hardest thing to fit into a busy schedule!!).
