Asheville, North Carolina
My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2003. Since then, we have worked together to keep him healthy and strong, so we can live well. On any given day, you can find me and my husband cycling, hiking, stand-up paddling, or traveling all around the world enjoying life.
I teach Parkinson’s programs at the YMCA and am excited to help others learn to exercise to have a better quality of life. Quality time with others is critically important to me, and I make sure to spend as much time as I can with my grandchildren or being outdoors with friends. My husband and I live well today by continuing to do the things we love and spending time with family.
