Let’s take a closer look at her story.
How did you choose your profession?
I started with individuals, training them for strength, balance and mobility for injury prevention. I really found my passion once I learned how much hard work goes into turning on the lights, modern plumbing and heating a home or business. Bringing relief and pain-free movement to physical workers for all their hard work is truly rewarding.
What’s important to be effective in your role?
A sense of humor, a bold personality and a desire to truly understand the workers’ environment are essential.
What do you want everyone to know about safety?
When it comes to preventing injuries, YOU are personally responsible for taking action. All the awareness and instruction tips in the world won’t help at all unless you take action and make a change.
What is your superpower?
Getting stubborn, aging field workers to move and stretch by choice and on a regular basis.
