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.

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
