Are you involved in a business venture or corporate world? Please Share!
Yes! I own and am an instructor for FIT4MOM-FLORHAM PARK- SHORT HILLS- MORRISTOWN. One of the programs, Stroller Strides, is a functional, total-body conditioning workout designed for moms with kids in tow. Each 60-minute workout is comprised of strength training, cardio and core restoration, all while entertaining little ones with songs, activities and fun!
If you could give one tip to fellow Mom Entrepreneurs what would it be?
Do not get discouraged in the beginning or in general when unexpected life events happen (i.e Coronavirus). Make the necessary adjustments as you can and try to keep pushing forward as best you can.
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
I actually went to school for medicine and finished medical school so fitness and business is actually all very new for me but I absolutely love it!
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
I have A LOT of support from the community of moms that I am. They help me promote via social media and by word of mouth! They encouraged me throughout the pandemic because they always told me they were excited to get back once we were able to re-open. In general, we always help with one another’s children, needs, information, understanding, reccommendations, etc. Support and encouragement have made excited to re-open!
