“It is my mission to positively shape the future, using my life to uplift many, many more,” she says.

Smith also says that fitness positively influenced her life by activating the much-needed endorphins that fight off the blues, and it gave her a safe space and an outlet to release worries and things outside of her control.

“I have gained so much natural energy, attained the best version of my body, gotten a turbo boost of confidence, and I am at an ideal place for self-care at no cost.”

What Smith needs most right now is votes from the local community in order to progress her mission of helping others. The voting begins Monday, June 14, at 10 a.m. To vote for Lisa Smith, go online to
