At 51 years young I am happier, healthier and more fit than I was 15 years ago. Life has had its challenges but I’ve emerged with a stronger sense of myself. I’ve even competed in and won two body building competitions. I have 3 teenage daughters and the best times in my life are those I spend with them. I love going to the renaissance faire, dinners out, the theatre and to other events with my girls. I am a college speech instructor and personal trainer. I motivate my students to live a healthy lifestyle and lead by example, demonstrating that getting older doesn’t mean the end of vitality, energy or ambition. In fact, I seem to have more energy than many of my students! At 51 I am self sufficient, enjoying my teenage children and am free to be exactly who I really am. Life is good!
