Activity: Horseback Riding
I grew up riding horses in Tennessee, and though I do not own a horse in Boston, I enjoy riding whenever I can. I grew up competing in the jumper division, then rode western style when I got my own horses. Locally, I ride at Canton Equestrian Center.

Activity: Skiing
My husband and I love to ski on the weekends during the winter. I grew up going out west, but am getting used to the icy conditions in the Northeast! We love to go to both Loon Mountain in New Hampshire and Stowe in Vermont.

Activity: Corepower Yoga and Running
I grew up as a gymnast, and though I love to run, have recently struggled with knee injuries from years of hard landings in tumbling! I now do Corepower Yoga at least 3x a week, and have recently been able to run again!
