I workout for at least 30-60 minutes every single morning before starting my full day.

Favorite organization/non-profit and why?

My favorite non-profit is CDH International. My youngest son was born premature and had an undiagnosed Congenital Diaphragmic Hernia. This organization helped me and my family to become knowledgeable about this condition and has helped me have a community that understands that challenges that we faced and continue to face supporting a child with CDH.
