I have always loved working with young athletes — which makes my role with the Young Athletes Center such a great fit! It’s so rewarding to see a child who has suffered a setback get healthy and back on the field. I have three kids of my own, who are now 12, 10, and 7. My husband, Jeffrey, and I love to spend our time away from work exploring the city with them. And when I’m on my own, I like to run and participate in obstacle course races — and cook and bake when I can! My best advice to other moms is advice I try to live by, myself: keep your kids active! Set a good example and get out and walk as a family.
