What’s her secret for healthy aging? …“I enjoy daily yoga, strength training or biking to work to cultivate my vitality. My body thrives on 7+ hours of quality sleep. I prefer to eat a rainbow of colorful peppers instead of popping colorful pills. I LOVE finding NATURAL solutions to everyday health problems. Doc and I prioritize our “love life” and try to find the humor in life’s juggling act. If this is the kind of support you seek, you’re in the right place!”
