Our May Mom of the Month

Our Mom of the Month program honors one of our Stroller Strides moms for her efforts to live a healthy lifestyle while letting us get to know her better at the same time. Our May Mom of the Month is Krista Welty (aka Caiden's mom). 

The Welty Family

Krista is a faithful attender at our Shelley Lake class location, serves as one of our hard-working (volunteer!) Playgroup Captains and is a great role model for healthy living for Caiden! A former science teacher, Krista even provides the occasional impromptu science lesson during class and we all learn a little something new about the beautiful world around us. Thanks for all you do to help make our classes and playgroups so special, Krista!

We asked Krista a few questions to get to know her better and this is what she said:
