You might say Carol is constantly on the go. She lives in the West Valley, plays golf, practices yoga, acts in local plays, and volunteers at the Southwest Family Advocacy Center. She loves to travel, and still maintains her license in marriage and family therapy.
For Carol, the key is staying active.
“I think we get old because we stop moving. We don’t stop moving because we get old,” says Carol. Today, Carol teaches a water fitness class and works out for two hours every other day.
“I am rewarded by the stories that come back, the people who say that movement is easier for them now, that they are more flexible or they sleep better at night,” says Carol.
Carol also connects to her community by participating in a neighborhood card group and joining clubs. She misses her family in the Midwest, but encourages others to “take a little risk. Because you need to take a risk if you are going to try something new.”
