FIT4MOM Tri-Cities Member of the Month - Amy Lease

Meet Amy, she's one of the coolest mamas I know! She's easy going, always has something funny to say and she tends to find the joy in all the little things motherhood throws at us. We are lovin' on Amy a little extra hard this month because her and her family will soon be relocating and we are SO sad to see her and Julie go. Thank you Amy for being a part of Our Village and letting us do motherhood with you!

Favorite thing about FIT4MOM: Getting a great work out, being around other moms and how welcoming the community is!

When did you join FIT4MOM? July 2017, it was HOT!

What is your current job? Or what did you do before staying at home? I work as a patient care coordinator at a vision clinic.

What is your favorite food? I love Thai food!

What is your favorite beverage? I mostly drink water but my favorite other beverages are root beer and coffee!

What is your favorite book? Llama llama Red Pajama. Just kidding, I’ve always loved the Harry Potter series.

You are given four free hours of babysitting, what would you do? Go on a kid free date, dinner and a movie!

What is your dream kid free vacation? Bora Bora! Those cabins over the water are so beautiful!

What is your dream family vacation? DisneyWorld.

How has becoming a mother changed you? I think in pretty much every way! It’s so amazing and surprising how easily becoming a mother shifts the entire focus of your life. All my priorities changed. I used to shop for myself all the time, now Julie’s closet is exploding and I wear sweats and t-shirts from high school, and it’s totally fine.

Fondest childhood memory? Going on road trips with my family. We always had fun and came back with interesting stories!

Your favorite "go to" family friendly recipe? We do a lot of things in the crockpot but recently we have been loving “Make Ahead Ham Bites” so yummy!
