Hometown: Shalersville, Ohio
Current/previous career: General Sonographer with Cleveland Clinic Akron General for 8 years now. I started at the main hospital with Akron General and now work at an outpatient location in Tallmadge.
What does motherhood mean to you? One of the best things I’ve ever done. I love being a mom and teaching my kids and also having them teach me things. I’ve definitely learned to be more patient. It’s so hard at times but in the end it’s definitely worth it.
How did you find FIT4MOM? Googling workout classes.
What classes do you currently attend and why do you love them? Body Back. This class really makes me push myself. I’ve accomplished things I never thought I would do with fitness.
How has FIT4MOM changed your life? It has made me realize that no matter what stage of life you are in with motherhood, you can workout and have fun and include your kids while doing it.
Favorite exercise: Any that’s helps me with upper body strength. I feel like I have none.
What's one thing you would go back and tell yourself as a new mom? Relax. Don’t be so hard to be a perfect mom and do it all. You are not doing anything wrong. I ended up exclusively pumping and I really beat myself up and had a lot of tears that I was a bad mom because I couldn’t handle breastfeeding. I thought I was failing as a mom.
Proudest Moment: Watching how much my kids love each other. From the moment we told Auriana we were pregnant she loved her brother. They love playing and being together and I absolutely love seeing that.
Questions for kiddos:
1. How old is Mommy? Auriana: 40 / Nolan: 3
2. What’s something Mommy always says? Auriana: I love you the mostest
3. What is mom really good at? Auriana: Baking (ha I rarely bake) and snuggling.
Nolan: Making things like slime
4. What’s mom’s favorite thing to do? Auriana: Be with her kids
Nolan: clean stuff
5. What makes you proud of your mom? Auriana: Figure out video games. Nolan: cleaning up and making slime
