Congratulations to Kristi Harvey, our Mom of the Month for March!
Kristi is a dedicated Stroller Strides mama, working out with us since the fall of 2015! Her adorable and spirited daughters, Arielle and Lily, join her at classes. If you are friends with her on Facebook you've seen the photos...Kristi is a serious baker, having attended Johnson and Wales culinary program. Her creations are amazing...both in looks and taste!
Kristi is one of the hardest working mamas at class and is an inspiration to everyone around her. She has made great strides in fitness, motherhood, and life, and we are so thankful that she is an integral part of Our Village!
