That champion mindset is what I apply to everything I do: being a mom, a wife, a fitness and wellness advocate, a television host, an author and Home Chef.

Replenishing my health, my purpose and my mindset is how I learned to effectively multitask, manage my family life, and learn to face self-doubt by always pushing to be the best version of myself.
