Nov/Dec 2017 Feature-Dierra Lake
What got you into health and wellness?
I like to think that being so active when I was younger and participating in multiple sports led me down this path into health and wellness. I knew I needed good health to succeed in sports, so I was constantly eating healthy and learning what my body needed.
What do you do to maintain good health?
Lately, it’s been cardio and abdominal exercises. I also eat a lot of green vegetables like kale, lettuce, brussell sprouts and spinach. I usually put them in smoothies or saute them. As for skin health, I’m always digging for homemade skincare recipes. I love knowing what is in my products.
Why is leading a healthy lifestyle important to you?
It’s very important to me because I have a purpose to fulfill. I’ve seen too many friends and family perish due to poor health. I want to be that new wave in my tribe that encourages a healthy lifestyle.
What are some of your hobbies?
My most loved hobbies are fishing, modeling and cooking.
Notable health accomplishment you’d like to share?
I finally hit my 7 mile cardio goal!
