Physical fitness has always been an integral part of my life. As a child I participated in many sports and eventually earned a soccer scholarship to The University of Incarnate Word. After graduating from college I realized that physical fitness was more than recreational it was necessary for my mental health. As I started to plan my career and my family I knew two things. First I wanted to stay home with my children and second I wanted to own my own business. In July of 2007, 5 months after my oldest daughter was born and two weeks after moving to Los Angeles I joined Stroller Strides. It was such a great outlet for me at that time. I was living in Los Angeles with no friends or family. Stroller Stride created the community I was missing. Eventually we moved back home to San Antonio and in May of 2008 I opened my own Fit4Mom franchise. Being a franchise owner to Fit4mom has been such a blessing in more ways than I ever could of imagined. It is about more than physical fitness. It is about being healthy role models for our families.
