Welcome back to another edition of Meet Our Village Monday! This week we are featuring the amazing and hilarious Alyson Wickens!
How long have you been with FIT4MOM?
In what way(s) have you participated in FIT4MOM (Fit4Baby, Stroller Strides, BodyBack)?
Tell us about your family.
Our family is busy traveling and going on adventures . The Wickens Clan consist of five members: Ivan, Harper, Olivia, and me. Oh, we can't forget Baxter, our Goldendoodle . Ivan, my husband, builds custom homes for the Johnson group. Harper Grace is going to be four in July and attends preschool at Early Childhood Discovery, and baby Olivia, aka Chuckles, is 11 months. My interests include working-out because I enjoy local restaurants and craft beer. I'm excited about essential oils, running, and real estate.
What is one thing you love about Stroller Strides/Fit4Baby/BodyBack?
I love teaching my children by example that being healthy and exercising is second nature. It's part of everyday life.
Skater strides and running.
What do you do for work or what did you do before baby?
I am currently pursuing a career in real estate. It really excites me. I've been praying about it and I am ready to pursue my dreams where I can still be active in my children's lives.
Have you played any sports in the past or what sport would you like to learn?
I would like to learn how to play golf.
What is a piece of advice you can pass on to fellow moms?
Stop being so hard on yourself. We're human. We make mistakes. Our job is to love our children and our families. That's what's important. Also, make sure you have fun while doing it.
We are so thankful to have you as part of our village, Alyson! Your joy and encouragement are important parts of what makes our community so wonderful.
