“I would not be able to do the physically demanding work that I do for the last 20 years if not for the ongoing body maintenance I make a priority. I believe my injuries have given me the ability to relate and solve problems well beyond what a class or certification alone can do. I am grateful because I have grown over these years and excited because there is always more to learn.”
