The silver lining was that one of my Goddaughters moved to New York to pursue her first “dream job” in marketing and has been gone for about a year. We’ve all missed her sweetness and quirkiness very much! Because of COVID-19, she moved back home to Oakdale and has been working from home. We’ve been blessed to have her back!

How do you Go Red from home to keep your heart healthy? My favorite thing to do at home to keep my heart healthy is go for bike rides with my husband and my dog, Sierra. The three of us also enjoy working around the farm every chance we get.

What heart health advice do you have for other women? My heart health advice to women would be to KNOW their numbers to help manage their risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Secondly, they also need to know about symptoms of vascular disease, including heart attack and stroke, and be aware of how those symptoms may differ from men.
