Jessica PereiraTell us about Jessica’s Wellness Superhero journey.

We are wholeheartedly inspired by Jessica's hard work and dedication to becoming healthy and losing weight over the past 2 years. She attends fitness training and Zumba classes weekly and still musters the energy to hit the gym 6 days a week.

What inspired Jessica to get healthy and stay healthy?

Jessica is a busy single mother of small children. Her perseverance to overcome her current health issues is inspiring. Jessica truly desires to be healthy and active in order to provide her children with the best childhood possible. Jessica realized very early on that the mind/body connection affected her overall well-being and she knew that she needed to make the change.

Are there activities or hobbies Jessica now participates in that she didn’t before?

Two 5k's, a color run and walking daily during her lunch break.

Have Jessica’s doctors, family, friends and co-workers provided support along the way? If so, how?

Doctors have supported her through education and co-workers have supported her by attending Zumba classes and fitness training along with her.

If you could say one thing to other employees to inspire them, what would you say?

Keep up the great work! You are my hero! You can do this, we are here for you!
