How long have you been a part of F4M & what got you started?
I had heard about Fit4Mom for quite a while, I finally decided to try free week around mother’s day this last year and fell in love with the whole idea of working out with your little one in tow!
Names & ages of your children? Share one fun thing about each!
Taylee is 6, she is my little princess, she is 100 percent girly girl, every bone in her body sparkles, she is a great dancer, story teller and very witty. Cayson is 9 Months, he was born on a Christmas Eve 2017... he is already such a lover.. cuddles, giggles, and mommy are some his favorites these days.
Who is your spouse? How long have you been together?
Cameron is my Prince Charming, I thank God for him every day!
Before joining our village and before having children, what kept you busy?
I have a passion for children with special needs, so for several years I taught SPED students of all ages K-12, and after obtaining my bachelors degree in exercise physiology I started working in healthcare doing diagnostic heart testing on kids and adults in the hospital setting. Health is definitely a huge passion of mine, which is why I think joining this Fit4Mom village is so awesome, we all have the same mind set that being healthy and happy are the first steps to being a great mommy. We must take care of ourselves before we can even think about taking care of our kiddos.
What are 3 words a good friend would use to describe you?
Easy Going, Caring, and Thankful
Why are you passionate about FIT4MOM?
I have so many reasons! I love being surrounded by a community of women that are all in the same chapter of life, raising babies, doing our best to be good wives and friends, all while taking care of ourselves! Fit4Mom is exactly what I needed to get me out of the house and to kick start my mornings in the positive direction so I can be a better wife and mom. I’ve met amazing, strong women that would offer the shirt of their back just to help another momma out. Its inspirational- the whole pay it forward attitude amongst the mom’s...It’s a family atmosphere, we’ve all got each others back, we give, we receive, we cry, we laugh, we play, we sweat, we have fun.. it’s just ridiculously awesome!
Tell us how Motherhood changed you?
Motherhood is like nothing I’ve experienced in my life, these tiny humans demand so much time and energy, patience, sleepless nights, energy, and selflessness... it’s draining and exhausting sometimes... but it’s my absolute favorite thing in the world. My heart beats for my kids.. my job is to be present, to build memories, to teach them right from wrong, to love them unconditionally and to provide a safe, warm and nurturing home for them to grow and thrive in. Motherhood is a challenge I am so blessed to have!
Why should a new mom join FIT4MOM Cedar Mill:
It’s the frosting on top of this whole motherhood thing. Fit4Mom is everything you don’t realize you want or need to accompany those sleepless nights, the stresses of wearing all the hats mom life brings. Even if you think you don’t have time, or you're not “that” kind of person.. trust me.. It’s community, it’s a place to belong and fit in- there are moms from all walks of life, all shapes & sizes, moms who co-sleep, single moms, pregnant moms, old moms, young moms... believe me when I say it’s a comfort zone, somewhere you can just show up and be welcomed..plus it’s fun! I encourage all moms to give it a try, I was skeptical for quite a while before I finally decided to take a chance and I am so glad I did!
