Why are you interested in corporate wellness?

What is your favorite part about what you do?
“I am passionate about the meaning behind my work and know that my work is helping others.”
How did receiving the Fred Zimmer Memorial Scholarship help you get to where you are today?
“Because of this scholarship, I became pen-pals with Myra MacDonald (Fred Zimmer’s wife) for years. I was able to network with other health professionals when I received the scholarship and I received friendship and life/career advice from Myra that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”
