Tell us about your Wellness Superhero journey.

In the past, I had elevated cholesterol, never worried about what to eat and never worked out. I am nominating myself because as a result of my health issues, I exercise now on a regular basis, am determined to lower my cholesterol and absolutely love going to the gym for more reasons than I could have ever imagined. People often ask me why I walk or workout daily if I am so petite, and I have to remind them that weight is not always the issue for health risks. A healthy heart can take you a long way in life.

What inspired you to get healthy and stay healthy?

Since I am getting older, I have to put my health first so that I can live a long, healthy life.

Are there activities or hobbies you now participate in that you didn’t before?

I work out daily at the gym now.

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

No matter the obstacle, let’s keep persevering!
