Jane: Finding a happy balance between sleep, trying to exercise daily and eating healthy.

Jane: I try and set aside time to exercise.  I don’t watch tv, instead I walk, run on the weekends and ride my bike.

vw: What are your favorite healthy foods?

Jane: Protein shakes packed with kale.  Salmon and chicken.  I try to be consistent with lots of veggies, fruits and low amounts of carbs.

vw: What would you like to see in our schools healthy future for the staff?

Jane: I would like for the staff to continue finding things to do as a group within the departments.  Like group walking.  This way we can motivate each other.

vw: Jane, what would be your Personal Healthy Tip?

Jane: Moderation & Consistency

Jane rides her bike or walks to work daily.  Rain or shine you will see Jane making the 1.5 mile trek to and from work.  Even during the day you will see her walking about.  Another enjoyment of Jane’s is playing keyboard for 2 bands.  You could call this her “mental fitness”.
