Before having my son Aiden I worked in the fast paced financed industry for many years. When he was born i decided to quit my job and be a full time stay at home mom. It was wonderful BUT I was looking for something and I didn't know what it was. When I went to my first Stroller Strides class in January 2014 with my very active 8 month old I had no idea that my life was about to change. I found a place to exercise WITH my son AND meet other moms who were looking for the same thing - A village of moms so to speak that were either stay at home moms, part time moms, moms on maternity leave who had children around the same age as mine. Women that I could relate with. These bonds began to form almost immediately. 2 and 1/2 years later when the franchise went up for sale I took the plunge and it has been a very exciting adventure for my family and I. In a couple of months I got certified as a Stroller Strides Instructor and took ownership of this business while being 7 months pregnant. These moms have been my drive and my inspiration for why I bought this franchise and I am so excited for the journey thats ahead of me.
