We had the good fortune of connecting with Clarissa Lambert and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Clarissa, what are you inspired by?
I am inspired by the beauty of life itself every day. We get to wake up every day and have so much to be thankful for and we have so many things we get to enjoy. I amazed myself sometimes how we are gifted with able bodies that allow us to workout and give off so much energy to those around us.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Getting to where I am now was not easy and I still have a long ways to go with my career, but after many years I can am finally confident with my career choice. Fitness is my main hobby and I am working on being a full time fitness instructor as I feel like it is one of my callings and I love fitness and want to share that love with other people. My all end goal for my career is being a nurse so currently I am in school and am a full time nanny to support my life while living in LA. My life is so busy all the time and I have to stay super focused but at the end of the day I would not change anything.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite spots in the city include Abbot Kinney, the beach at Marina Del Ray, and any rooftop bar. There are so many hidden gems to the city of LA and it would take longer then a week to truly show someone around. I love the diversity of this city and I would show them how the East side and West side are two completely different places. But both places have their own true beauty. I am forever a west side best side girl because the beach is one of my favorite places on the earth but I still love to venture all around LA. Like I said we would never get board because there are always so many places to eat at, have a cocktail, and take in beautiful views. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
As cheesy and basic as it sounds my friends and family always deserve a shout out because I would not be where I am or who I am without them. I have realized that I have found true love between my friends. I do not need a boyfriend or partner to full fill that “love” spot. Having my amazing friends around has shown me what true love is. Also a shoutout to my mom who unwillingly is always there for me and listens to every single stupid story of mine, whether big or small.
