I am a current student at the University of Utah studying Health Promotion and Kinesiology. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is something I am rather passionate about and through Stretch-n-Grow I am able to share that passion with children of all ages. I hope that by working with children, I can promote positive health behaviors that will they will implement into their lives. A few activities that helped myself maintain a healthy lifestyle include Irish dancing, skiing, hiking, and mountain biking. Engaging in physical activity that is truly enjoyable makes it that much easier to work toward/sustain a healthy lifestyle.
