Felicia is a fiercely strong mom, new grandma (aka “Queen”), and a joyful and inspiring athlete and woman. She shares about how becoming a mom helped her learn how to be patient with herself and be more compassionate towards others. She emphasizes the importance of learning to create time for herself, her “me time”, for fitness and self care as an essential part of being the best parent should could be. As a mother of young adult children she is able to look back with some perspective around things she wishes she would have learned a little earlier, while still holding no regrets and being able to take pride in knowing that she did her best. Felicia is full of joy and no doubt you’ll find yourself smiling as you get to know her a little better on this week’s episode!
