"I try to make talking about wellness a regular practice. Talking about wellness creates a culture where wellness is a priority. Helping people get started with one small step is how wellness happens. Eventually, the healthier choice is the easiest choice."
Focusing on wellness has been one of the greatest gifts I have given myself and shared with others. In a world full of constant distractions and challenges, wellness gives me the opportunity to slow down, hit the rest button, and focus on the things that matter most. Wellness also drives my creativity, which is an important part of my work that brings me joy.
"Wellness to me, means a healthy state of contentment and to be in a state of equilibrium. Wellness is having the tools to turn negative situations into positive ones, to have the resources to grow and to pursue passions in life."
"I was interested in doing more on campus and the notion of being a Wellness Ambassador resonated with me after learning more about the program. I like the holistic approach this program and the campus has taken to well-being."
"I believe the most rewarding experience thus far has been seeing the enthusiasm and pure responses from those that have participated. One example of an event we've hosted is Love on Loan, where the SPCA comes out with animals for staff to snuggle up with and destress. The smiles and laughter in the room were truly inspiring to witness at work."
