Why Team Valentine Project?
Truth is, as a researcher, much of my work is focused on how we struggle with our health. I may help determine how we can solve health challenges, but strategic wellness plans take a long time to put into place. I don’t sleep well at night, knowing there are so many people who are trying to improve their well-being NOW. I’ve felt that pain! Chronically sick, 50 pounds heavier, depressed, “infertile”, and most of all confused about what to do about it. It took more than ten years of college and working alongside experts in research institutes, NFL training facilities, hospitals, and healthy community initiatives to start to get it right. I refuse to just sit here, armed with knowledge and deeply missing the ability to directly impact the very thing I research.
Team Valentine Project is a way I can work to fulfill what I believe is my God-given purpose – to help empower those who want to help themselves. I believe you and your family can THRIVE. If you’re ready and willing to take action YES, Let’s Go! You deserve some help along the way!
Team Valentine Project is also a place. We're taking our family vision one step further and converting our garage into an active living space. We'll share how this project brings our family and our community together to make wellness work.
Together, we can take small steps that create a resilient foundation of health and happiness.
