What keeps you motivated?

Age, the calendar and the compliments that I get on a daily basis when people can't believe that I'm in my 50's. I feel like 58 is the new 38.

Why do you love to sweat?

Sweating is my jam man! Working out to an intensity that consumes me leaves me feeling full and confident. I can tackle the many demands of my life, career, business and family- but only after I've had a good, hard, sweat.

What words do you live by?

"Believe it and you'll achieve it!"

What makes you a kick-a$$ Oxygen Ambassador?

Empowered and confident women are unstoppable in my mind. I believe that as we age, not only do we become wiser, we become more emboldened with dreams and desires and our drive to achieve great things becomes exponentially more passionate. I want to inspire mature readers to be more confident and feel more worthy to go chase and conquer some kick-a$$ goals!
