-How did you find Fit4Mom? A FB friend kept posting about Stroller Strides while I was pregnant with Jase and I decided to google it and was surprised to find one so close to me!
-What has Fit4Mom done for you (or meant to you)? Being pregnant this time around was quiet lonely. None of my friends were having babies again. I didn't have anyone to swap stories or "vent" to. Once I had Jase I felt even lonelier. Finding Fit4Mom and the "village" gave me an instant family! A set of friends that was in the same stage of life as me. It gave me a social life!
-What was your childhood ambition? To be an independent Woman. My mother was a single mom and she always let me know I can be and do whatever I wanted to if I just believed in ME!
-What does motherhood mean to you? Motherhood is the best worst days! Finding strength inside myself I never knew I had and loving unconditionally! I love my tiny humans!
-What is your favorite exercise? Planks
-What is your proudest moment? Besides birthing my two children, it's watching my 14 year old daughter blossom into this amazing young strong woman!
-What are three of your favorite things (besides your family)? Coffee, beaches and a good book!
-If we asked your partner what they think your best qualities are, what would they say? Always putting others first and willing to give someone your last dime!
-Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us:
I love the band LOVERBOY! and I'm really an introvert.
