What brought you to be an advocate for the American Heart Association?

The opportunity to work towards a better outcomes for my family and my community. Cardiovascular health issues have touched those closest to me and I want to be a part of the work that improves their futures.

Healthy food access and disparities around cardiovascular health. I am passionate about these issues because their impact is largely decided by income and zip code. Quality access to health care, healthy living and healthy food should be available to everyone!

Seeing people get excited about how they can impact decision making and their elected officials to better their community. People have power!

What is your favorite way to be active?

Long hikes in Minnesota state parks

Butternut Squash
