In an article at Great Vegan Athletes she stated:
“A lot of people are very surprised that I can be as strong as I am on a mostly raw vegan diet. At this point, anyone that knows me knows I’m a vegan because I make a point to wear a VEGAN item everyday. A tank, shorts, my purse… even my license plate reads VEGAN. I am very proud to be so strong and so healthy on a vegan diet. I pride myself on being an ambassador for the vegan lifestyle!”
She now works as a professional animal communicator and teaches classes on meditation. She also volunteers for a pit bull rescue.
