1. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
One thing people do not know about me is that I am fascinated by everything related to Astronomy. I visit the observatory on UT Campus at least 4 times a year!
2. What is your go-to “healthy” snack or meal? What is your go-to “treat”?
My go-to healthy meal is a Quinoa or Brown rice bowl with at least six different vegetables. My go-to “treat” is frozen berries. I always have a bag in my freezer.
3. What are your top 3 favorite exercises of the moment?
4. Describe your health and fitness philosophy in ONE WORD. Why that word?
Synergy – health and fitness are not individual things. They are a combination of different areas that work together synergistically. It is almost impossible to have one without the other.
