Hi Mammas!! I grew up in Murrieta, CA and moved to San Marcos in 2004 after I graduated high school to began my college education at Cal State San Marcos. I met my husband at the school gym in 2006 and we have lived here ever since! I heard about Stroller Strides through a friend who lived in San Elijo and would see the mammas doing their workouts through town. By the time my son Evan was 3 months old we had been through many mommy and me FAILED experiences and were happy to try something new. One class at San Elijo stroller strides gave this mamma EXACTLY what she was looking for!! I was having a hard time transitioning from being a full time student at CSUSM, to a graduate who worked full time and got to exercise 5-6 days a week, to being a FULL TIME MAMMA with a husband who traveled 3 weeks out of the month. The style of workout combined with the community of women who knew exactly what I was going through was the 'perfect storm' of BLISS I needed. Needless to say, Stroller Strides became my sanity! Even on the nights where I only got 3 hours of sleep and barely managed to get out of the house with my only intention being to get to class and walk, the energy of the instructor and the mammas pushed me to be a better, happier version of myself and ultimately a better mamma to Evan! These are the reasons we have been a part of the stroller strides family for almost 4 years now and the reason I decided to become an instructor. As moms we all have something in common and I would be honored to bring light to a moms day as so many have done for me!
