How did you hear about YPB and what brought you to the studio? I heard about YPB from a family friend who was working for Lisa at the time for her marketing business. After meeting Lisa, I decided to join under TAMUCC’s Small Business Internship Program in Feb. 2012.
What attracted you to YPB? I initially became interested in working with Lisa through her marketing business due to a recent career change I made from Nursing to Business. I felt I could learn a lot from her. After getting to know her and her business I learned of her passion for her training the over 50 and was excited to be a part of YPB.
What unique qualities do you bring to Team YPB that might set you apart (even just a little bit)? I feel I am talented among multiple aspects of business, from Marketing, to Website, to Taxes, etc. I am a quick learner and feel that sets me apart.
What is your own weekly fitness routine? After working for YPB, I went from never exercising in my life and eating the worst, to being educated about the benefits of health and fitness. I am truly inspired by what our clients are able to do. Currently, I do about 15 mins. of exercise each day, drinking half my body weight in water and changing my diet significantly.
What type of community activities are you involved in? I volunteer at my church and will help Lisa and YPB at various community events.
What do you look forward to the most working with men/women over 50, their health challenges and/or disabilities? I like that I have the ability to help the over 50 with their health and fitness journey.
What is your favorite fitness/inspirational/motivational quote? “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
