Since my time in Texas, I have been networking with Prosper locals, training professional athletes, and attending events/volunteering. Fresh Healthy Cafe will be coming in February or early March 2015 in Prosper, TX. I’m currently working to establish a Wellness Council Committee with the Town of Prosper’s School Board. My goal is to provide a way to inform teachers, staff, students and families about the work the school is doing to improve the health and academic success of its students. Our goal is to create a annual Health Fair and a Family Fun Walk for the Prosper community. Finally in my personal life, I’ve been training for Dallas Europa NPC Amateur Competition in June 2015. I will be competing in Male Physique category. Remember….EAT WELL..LIVE WELL..FEEL GOOD.
