Mother / Adaptive Athlete / Jokester
1. How long have you been lifting?
4 years before getting sick and one year whilst being sick.
2. Why do you lift?
Because without it. I wouldn’t be here. Whether it be emotionally, mentally, or physically.
3. How does lifting influence other areas of your life, outside the gym?
My son watched his mumma go from a coach, business owner and athlete to a vegetable in the period of 4 months. After trying dozens of “medicine” I quit it all and started lifting again. I’m more present than ever and smile like I won the lottery every day now that my son is proud of me instead of watching me rot.
4. What are some of your other hobbies or passions besides lifting?
I coach my sons baseball team, my husbands competitive softball team, and just picked up rock climbing in order to help with my rope climbs. I love to laugh and crack inappropriate jokes and long “rolls” on the beach.....boardwalk.
