Shirley D. Minter-Smith owner of Vegan Magic/Healthy Living Made Simple is a “lightweight” natural bodybuilder; and on November 3, 2012, after four years as an amateur, she received her Professional Bodybuilding credentials at the age of 60. Also, on December 2, 2012, she was the recipient of the “Natural Physique Association 2012 Top Pro Female Athlete of the Year,” and “2012 NPA Iron Female Athlete of the Year” awards.
