Connection and community impact is what drives this adventure for me!
I developed a relationship with Water and Light whose mission is to alleviate poverty through education. Now, as their Director of Health and Wellness, I am driven to empower others to live healthier lives through swimming lessons, community yoga, health/wellness treatments, education on the importance of clean water, and health days at after school programs.
But, my vision is bigger than this; it’s not just healthier individuals but a healthier community. My vision is to create a space that inspires a healthier community.
The goal is to raise funds that will be used to:
Build and open a health and wellness recreational center.
How am I currently serving the community?
Developing a swimming program called Waves Swim School offered at Water & Light. Empowering children through swimming. Teaching them swimming skills and basic water safety.
Creating jobs for young adults through training swim teachers.
Developing health and wellness programing for youth.
Orchestrating health and wellness activities for the women of Salinas Grandes.
Provide in-home treatment to individuals who live within the community of Salinas Grandes. The house call treatments include: massage, fascial stretching, mobility education and lifestyle choices to address chronic pain or other physical presentations.
I invite you to join this adventure and support building a healthier community within the capacity that you can.
