What is your favorite thing about FIT4MOM?

I love the positive atmosphere and encouragement from instructors and other moms.

What is your current job? Or what did you do before staying at home (if you don’t currently work outside the home)?

I am a middle school science teacher.

Share your thoughts on the concept of “it takes a village” – is it important for moms to join a village?

I never did much with my oldest daughter when she was young as I felt I had to maintain a strict schedule, so I didn't get out of the house, and it was lonely hard adjustment. With my newest, I have been able to get out more and spent most of the summer at Stroller Strides with her! I really enjoyed having the support of other moms this time around! As a new mom I wish I would have had the support of the village the first time around and I’m so thankful I had it the second time!

What is your ultimate child-free vacation destination?

How has becoming a mother changed you?

I would say I am more patient and forgiving of others and am much more of a home body.
