Health and fitness have always been very important to me. At this stage in my life, I am home full-time with our 3 kids and homeschooling. Even though time to focus on my own fitness goals seems limited, I have found that walking and running (usually with the full crew in tow!) are one of the most consistent ways I can exercise. Over the past several years, participating in 5K and 10K races have given me motivation and specific goals to work towards. I want to lead our family by example when it comes to health and fitness and I am excited to include them on the journey as they grow.
My educational background is in health education and my husband’s is in agriculture. We started a small cattle operation after we got married, and during this time I have looked for ways that I could also be more involved with our cattle and educated about the beef industry. When I heard about Team Beef Florida, I saw this as a very fitting way to use my background and passion for health and fitness in conjunction with educating myself and others about beef and the industry behind it.
