What is your favorite part of what you do?
We are making an impact and changing lives. We build relationships and empower the people we work with to make changes that leads to better quality of lives for them and their families.
What are some goals you have for your personal and professional future?
As a mom to 2 boys with a very busy husband who teaches and coaches 2 high school sports, I often put myself on the back burner. I personally am always working on taking more time for myself. That means allowing myself time to read, spend time with friends and take care of my well-being! Professionally, I want to continue to build my business, build my staff and collaborate with as many companies as we can to build cultures of well-being regionally and nationally!
What importance does a healthy lifestyle play into the lives of professionals?
We are all becoming more and more health conscious. But due to higher stress, longer work days and constant multitasking, it is more difficult to find the time to act on leading a healthy lifestyle. We know that leading a healthier lifestyle not only improves overall health, but in companies, you are looking at improved morale and presenteeism, lower health care costs, reduced absenteeism and overall reducing those at risk for chronic conditions.
How can young professionals benefit from or contribute to your business?
When a company partners with Well365, they can expect to see their employees having fun, engaged in their workforce and participating in meaningful programs. Young professionals can encourage their employer to see the value in corporate wellness and how they can use our services as a way to retain good, quality staff while impacting their overall culture.
