I was always encouraged to "go outside and play" as a child. That never went away. Participating in triathlons, half marathons, yoga, sky diving, scuba diving... whatever it takes to enjoy life to the fullest and also instilling that in my daughter who has far surpassed me in life adventures.  Today I have a good balance of physical, emotional, and social fitness.  Working at the University, I find the chance to share that philosophy with others, forever reminding myself of the importance of health and wellbeing (and CLEAN WATER!). Play hard and laugh often!


If you don't try, you'll never know.
