What is your passion when it comes to wellness?
I enjoy creating personal wellbeing pathways that help both employers and employees become more engaged in their wellness journeys.
What have been the benefits of being involved with the Council?
Without hesitation, developing a network of relationships in the Worksite Wellness Council have helped me grow in my job and as a person.  There is such a strong community of goodwill among the WWCMA members that everyone is always helping each other.  WWCMA has evolved beyond an association, because the relationships I have made are friendships based around common goals of creating a healthier world.
