My Story: Why I’m Passionate About What I Do
Currently I am certified in ergonomics and offer Job Safety & Job Wellness Solutions for the office setting as well as for assisted living owners and caregivers. But to better understand why I do what I do, and why I am passionate about it, let’s go back a few years.
I started a business in 1984 distributing ergonomic neck and back products. It began out of my passion for self- care and preventive health care after several serious accidents.
Over time I had begun to realize how much I needed to do to assist in my own healing, health, and well-being. Much of which is preventive, as in diet, exercise, or using proper neck and back supports while sleeping or sitting. Good or bad posture greatly effects the nervous system and brain function just to mention two; therefore proper posture became very important to me as well as other preventive care.
Fast forward to 2003. Overnight my husband and I instantly became the main caregivers for my wonderful mother-in-law. Mom had moved in with us due to her suffering with Alzheimer’s at age 87. Five years later it became necessary to place her in an Adult Care Home. Hence, my great appreciation for assisted living owners and caregivers. This also evoked a great passion for working within this field.
It is my goal and my joy to assist others in preventive health care. Whether I’m teaching CEU Seminars for Caregivers, offering Ergonomic Office Assessments, providing Educational Workshops or distributing products; over the years I have been able to live out my passion while sharing what I’ve learned and most importantly experienced.
It is never too late to begin living out your passions, experiences and share with others your knowledge and your story.
