Let's kick off 2021 by recognizing one of our many amazing moms!
Each month, we are celebrating a member of FIT4MOM West Sacramento/Natomas for her commitment to a healthy lifestyle and dedication to FIT4MOM.
This month, we are spotlighting an amazing mom who has been a member for over a year! Meet our Mom of the Month for January: Alison DeVera.
Tell us about who is in your family!
I am married to my husband of 5 years. We have one son who is 3 years old.
Where is your hometown?
I grew up in the bay area, but currently live in West Sacramento.
What is your career?
I worked at a preschool in Davis, CA. I was the head teacher of the toddler room for 14.5 years. I left the school because my husband and I decided to work on starting our own family. I found out I was pregnant right before I left and I have been a stay at home mom ever since.
How did you find FIT4MOM?
I heard about FIT4MOM on Facebook, but it wasn't until I talked with my dentist hygienist that I thought I should give it a try. About 7 months later, I tried my first class, and I was hooked.
How long have you been a member of FIT4MOM West Sacramento/Natomas and what has it done for you?
I have been a member of FIT4MOM since September 2019. My whole life, I haven't been a fan of exercise. I tried to join gyms but I would eventually stop going. FIT4MOM Stroller Strides is the first exercise class that I have absolutely loved. I look forward to every class. I also love how it helped me find other moms in the community that are in the same season of life. I have met some awesome moms and some great kiddos. I love our village!
What is your favorite exercise?
My favorite class is Stroller Barre
What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?
The amount of love I have for my son. I had always heard about mother's love, but it wasn't until I became a mom that I realized what it meant.
What are 3 of your favorite things?
Family, friends, Hawaii and FIT4MOM
What is your proudest mommy moment so far?
Every time I see my son smile and hear him laugh. To know he is happy means everything to me.
What advice would you give to a new mother?
Don't worry what others think.. Always do what is best for you and your family.
FIT4MOM is a great program! I don't know what I would do without my village!
We are so lucky to have Alison in our village. It wouldn't be the same without her and Kellen!
