In brief: Agree with Dr. Stern

I would add that blood pressure like that should be treated, and should also be investigated, especially in "an active 21 year old female.

In brief: Normal 130/80

Make sure there is no thyroid problem or obesity or smoking.
Normal blood pressure should be 130/80, especially in a female.
