How did you start your wellness lifestyle? I started when I worked at Coca-Cola and joined Healthworks, which was operated by Corporate Sports Unlimited. I was the lead lawyer for Coke in its negotiations with the IOC and organizing committees for its Olympic sponsorships for the Games in Sydney, Nagano, Albertville, Barcelona, Atlanta, and Lillehammer, as well as our relationship with Disney. High stress and a lot of sitting!
What have you accomplished thus far concerning your health?
What are your future wellness endeavors?
What types of hobbies and interests do you have outside of exercising?

Article of the Month: American Heart Month
Ask any stylist, job coach or dating expert and they’ll tell you that red stands out. Eyes are immediately drawn to it. Some even say that the color red is a confidence booster and makes you feel powerful. Maybe that’s why we chose the color red to signify our fight against the No. 1 killer in women. Maybe it’s just a coincidence that it’s also the color of our hearts.
In 2003, the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute took action against a disease that was claiming the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year – a disease that women weren’t paying attention to. A disease they truly believed, and many still believe to this day, affects more men than women.
Stemming from that action, National Wear Red Day was born. It’s held on the first Friday in February every year to raise awareness about heart disease being the No. 1 killer of women.
This coming National Wear Red Day, Feb. 7, 2014, marks our 11-year anniversary. And looking back on all we’ve accomplished, we’ve really made tremendous strides. They include:
But despite our progress, women are still dying. They’re still unaware of their risks and the facts. And now’s not the time for complacency. It’s time to stand stronger, speak louder and join us in the fight this National Wear Red Day.
