My favorite thing to read about and practice is living well.  I have been active and an athlete my entire life.  Everything from competitive gymnastics, swimming & cheerleading to water skiing, scuba diving & snow skiing.  I am a competitive person, or at least that’s what they tell me.  I am hard-pressed to pass on any challenge that comes my way.  But I also just like to move.  It feels good.  I like to push my body to it’s limits and see what it can give me.  And I love watching others push to and through their limits, realizing the possibilities.  It’s a beautiful thing!  I am so excited to share with others all I have learned.  And I plan to actively continue my education for my and your benefit.
