6. Who are 3 inspirational figures to you in health and wellness and why?
My mother remains an incredible inspiration to me. At age 86 (oh boy, I will be in deep trouble for divulging this) she remains physically active by exercising daily whether going to the gym, biking, golfing or walking, mentally sharp by keeping up with current events, completing various forms of puzzles, and reading, spiritually active with church activities, and socially active by keeping in touch with family and friends. She has persevered through many losses.
