6. Furthest you've been from home - Australia.

7. Why did you decide to try out Stroller Strides?

I didn't know what to do on maternity leave after all the visitors left. I needed to get out of the house, meet other moms and start to take a little time for myself.

8. What has Stroller Strides done for you?

Stroller Strides has made me feel physically better, but more importantly it has given me a community of moms who completely understand, provide advice and encourage me when I need a little push.

9. Favorite Exercise:

Squat jumps. They make me sore every time.

An amazing restaurant

Game of Thrones

13. Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us:

I decided at 19 years old to drop out of college and move to Dallas, TX with my best friend to run a candy store in the DFW airport. It was a crazy experience, but taught me a valuable lesson about hard work. I ended up meeting my husband in Dallas and going back to school so it all worked out!!
