Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia
Tell us about your family. My husband, Bill, and I have been married for 18 years. We have a beautiful, active daughter, Harper (who just turned 10), and two loveable dogs, Wilson (15, black lab) and Hazel (puppy, labradoodle).
Current/Previous career. I am currently a litigation attorney. I represent medical professionals and facilities in medical malpractice cases and before various professional boards.
What was your childhood ambition? To study languages, literature, and cultures and travel all over the world. I have always had a drive to help others in some way.
What does motherhood mean to you? What an amazing roller coaster ride it has been thus far! Motherhood is fun and challenging, heart-warming and hair-pulling, life-fulfilling and exhausting all at the same time. I never knew that I had this much capacity to love another human.
What is the furthest you have been away from home? I lived in Poland for two years while serving in the United States Peace Corps.
How did you find FIT4MOM? Brittany Perrin Asher. If you know Brittany well, then you know that she can be very persuasive. She knows me well and was determined that I would love Fit4Mom--of course, she was right. After my first class, I was hooked!
How has FIT4MOM changed your life? I grew up playing team sports. After college, I really missed the camaraderie and competition of playing sports with my teammates and working out/running solo was an on again/off again pattern for me. Fit4Mom has provided the synergy and personal drive you get from team sports with the fun of working out with remarkable women and incredibly talented instructors.
Favorite exercise. Any class with small group rotations and agility drills
Proudest moment. Finishing my first round of Body Well with Amanda Atherton as my coach, then later completing my first year with Fit4Mom and realizing I have never been stronger, physically, mentally, or emotionally.
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us. I would love to jump in an RV and take my time traveling across the United States and visiting all of our national parks.
Favorite virtual class. Pop-up Duo Boost with Amanda Atherton and Lauren Frank Rager! All of the early morning classes, 360 classes, and Katie Martin's dance parties in Low Impact 50 on Wednesday nights. So, pretty much all of it!
Quick 5 with Harper.
