I love being a journalist because I get to meet so many interesting and inspiring folks, such as athlete Zachary Young, who hopes to make it to the 2016 Paralympics. Or teenager Breann Strong, determined to live a healthier lifestyle. They’re just two of the people who shared their personal struggles and triumphs with me. When I’m not reporting for my local paper, I’m writing about active aging at, a site I created so I could share my interest in fitness topics - physical, mental and spiritual.
