Krista is the mother to seven daughters, the wife of a “hot guy”, from Milton, a cancer survivor, and the CEO of Step by Step, a non-profit that helps mothers break out of the cycle of poverty, abuse, and neglect. Oh, and she’s also run a marathon and recently completed a half iron man!
“I decided to train for a marathon in 2015 along with raising a million and a half dollars and that makes sense to some people, it doesn't make sense to other people,” says Krista. “There's I think a mental toughness that builds on itself that is critical to staying in something for the long haul.”
How does she do so much? “I only have so much time and so much energy and I'm choosing to focus it on two things, my family and the women at Step by Step. Balancing things in a healthy way is critical to my own health and well being and if I'm strong and healthy then things around me can be strong and healthy.”
“I just want to make an impact right where I am in my community with the people that come in to Step by Step or come in to my family's life,” says Krista. “You know to be that world changer, a game changer for them.”
What happens when you meet your neighbors? How can we increase the feeling of connection between members of our community and their neighbors? Over the past few months we here at Windermere Professional Partners have set out to answer those questions. Based on recommendations from our REALTORS® we set out with a camera crew to speak to our neighbors from the heart about what it means to be a neighbor, to live life fully, and to connect with our community.
