My involvement with Fit4Mom started in 2007 when I attended my first class with my then 6 week old daughter, Amira. I went solely for the workout, little did I know what I would truly gain from Stroller Strides. The welcoming environment, the advice on what to do with this new little creature that I had not a clue about, and the many, many friends I made were so much more then I could have asked for. I am so excited to now be able to give this back to all these new moms in Chandler and Gilbert.
In 2003 I graduated from ASU with a Bachelors Degree in Physical Fitness and Wellness. I never quite found exactly what I wanted to do with this degree until joining Stroller Strides. Being able to put my degree to use and at the same time help moms through those first few years of motherhood is incredibly gratifying.
During the summer months I spend all of my days in a pool as a certified Infant Swimming Resource instructor. I am also a Warrant Officer in the Army National Guard where I have served for the last 15 years.
My two girls, Amira, age 7, and Kameron, age 5, grew up attending Stroller Strides every day. I love that they were in an environment that promoted fitness, eating healthy, and forming relationships and I hope to offer this to all Fit4Mom members.
