The one snack you can always find in my carry-on is: Quest bars and apples. 

Tell us your in-flight rituals: I'm always traveling in stylist workout wear. That way it's easy to be comfortable, fashionable, and fit in walking + stretching on the go. I love to do standing yoga poses while waiting at the airport to reinvigorate my body from the stress of traveling. 

How do you conquer jet lag once you've arrived?  I get out and exercise when I arrive. Doing so helps me sleep well in my hotel room and it re-energizes me from a long bout of travel. I believe movement is medicine and helps make everything feel better.  

Describe your workout on the road style: I love to get out and explore a new location with an invigorating run. I'll combine that with bodyweight strength workouts and Ab videos in my hotel room. I travel so often that my YouTube channel is full of my exercise routines that I take with me.

How do you keep sickness at bay? I make sure to drink tons of water while traveling and take my vitamins! Altitude and re-circulated airport air can cause dehydration and put you at risk for catching a bug. To stay healthy I keep a refillable water bottle with me and drink at least 8 ounces for every hour inflight. 

What's your 'go-to' restaurant item? I order as many vegetables as I can when traveling to help with digestion. For dinner or lunch I'll order a salad (extra veggies!) with chicken and dressing on the side. If it's breakfast, I love a filling bowl of oatmeal and fruit. 

What do you do to stay grounded? I love to journal. I believe you must find a way to connect with yourself on a consistent daily basis in order to live an intentional life. 

What is your preferred method of staying connected with loved ones? I love writing letters and sending postcards when traveling. But of course face-to-face time is always best!
