Meet Our Village Monday: Jessica

Welcome to another week of Meet Our Village Monday! It's quite the rainy, fall day here in Michigan, so what could be better than snuggling up on the couch with some tea/coffee/hot chocolate & learning more about our community?? Today we have the pleasure of learning more about the wonderful Jessica Prusa. Enjoy!

How long have you been with FIT4MOM?

Since January 2017

In what way(s) have you participated in FIT4MOM (Fit4Baby, Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, BodyBack)?

Stroller Strides!!!

Tell us about your family.

I've been married a little over 5 years. My husband is in investment finance. We have a 19 month old son (Daxton) and are due April 10 with #2. We also have a 5 month old golden retriever/ chocolate lab mix puppy, Stella.

What is one thing you love about Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre/Fit4Baby/BodyBack?

I love the "momship" you get from meeting with other moms and getting to talk about daily life and feel like you can relate to others. Also, the endless support from everyone. Oh, and the great workout!!

Favorite exercise?

Push ups or running

Favorite food?

Pasta is always a good choice!

What are some things you like to do outside of exercising and being a mom?

Running marathons(Is this considered exercise? Trying to run one in every state) Reading, checking out new restaurants, family time!!

What do you do for work or what did you do before baby?

I'm a pharmacist at Walgreens.

Have you played any sports in the past or what sport would you like to learn?

I was on track/cross country teams and pole vaulted in college.

What is a piece of advice you can pass on to fellow moms?

Don't stress about the small things in life(I know easier said than done!) but enjoy every mom moment!!

Thank you for being part of our community, Jessica! We appreciate you so much!
