Fitness and Wellness Advocate
On September 12, 2016, I began a fitness program that has changed my life. I lost 90 pounds and have maintained this weight loss ever since. During the course of this journey, many have told me that I have inspired them. I have decided to share my successes and challenges by being a wellness advocate. Please contact me for information and rates.
I have been an independent Avon representative since May 2008. Please visit my store for your Avon needs.
