400dpilogoParents were talking, parents were wondering… just why is it that our kids don’t have recess anymore??  Talk turned to action & together with a friend we started Pinellas Parents for Healthy Schools.  We joined together with other “Recess Moms” from across Florida to lobby in Tallahassee to mandate recess in elementary schools.  No success yet, stay tuned…

My daughter, Grace, and I ran the Disney Princess 5K at the end of February and are fundraising for the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.  We have already reached our $1000 fundraising goal and are excited to continue to raise funds and raise awareness about this life changing organization.

 

ahalogo_full_red_blk2xFebruary is American Heart Month, and I am so glad to help spread the important message of the American Heart Association though my role as a Heart Healthy Presenter in the Jump Rope for Heart campaign.  We teach the kids to life heart healthy, help their family become healthier, and give back to those without healthy hearts.

 

top-nav-logo-greyThis company was really my second baby, I bought the franchise in St Petersburg when my first daughter was just six months old.  I nurtured and helped this “baby” grow for over 10 years, and recently sold my franchise… mostly since I no longer have any babies in strollers!  I will forever recommend Baby Boot Camp to new moms across the country.
