Beat The Winter Blah Blah Blahs

Career Fit Mom is a local business run by  Beth Yarzab.  Her approach is two-pronged: get your body fit and help you figure out what you want to do when you grow up.  Beth says that women often find themselves at a crossroads when they have children career-wise and they’re thinking about a job change or life change, but they’re not sure where to begin.  You can either use the fitness classes, use the career counseling or use both.  Or, you can take a walk.  In this case, Beth is organizing a winter wellness walk.

February 10th, 10:30-11:30 a.m.
