Maria Zobro, Physician Recruitment

Maria Zobro

Maria was nominated by her coworkers.

Tell us about Maria's Wellness Superhero journey.

  • Maria attends the 6 AM fitness classes.
  • She attends the gym regularly and inspires those around her to live a healthier lifestyle.
  • She encourages coworkers on our team to get their steps in, walk the stairs and finds ways to keep us moving throughout the day. She even set up a 2 PM fitness session and finds YouTube videos for us to get in a quick mid-day workout.

What inspired Maria to get healthy and stay healthy?

Maria likes to try new things. She started taking the 6 AM Cone Health exercise classes and enjoyed them. It was a nice way to get to know several people going to these classes.

Tell us which Cone Health Wellness programs Maria participates in. 

Maria attends workouts with the Cone Health group exercise classes; she donates blood, attends walks and participated in the Rugged Maniac with the Cone Health group last October.

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

She has been attending the gym more regularly and focusing more intently on fitness. She feels healthy and looks fantastic! 

Have Maria's doctor, family, friends and coworkers provided support along the way? If so, how?

Her coworkers, family and her friend Chris have been very supportive. Her Cone Health nutritionist was very supportive with encouraging comments.

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

Find a work out buddy and give them encouragement. It makes it more fun and fulfilling!
