In the past several years, I was touched by heart disease rearing its ugly head with a close family friend - she underwent quadruple bypass surgery and watching the recovery process is painful . And then I had a freak medical experience that left me on the kidney floor of a hospital for 5 days. Heart disease, stroke, diabetes - all very scary, very real diseases women face everyday.
All of these experiences shaped my desire to launch a business for women around health, well being and FUN - and just this past Nov 2012, I launched Bicyclette.com - a lifestyle brand for women inspired by the everyday joys of the bicycle.
This led me to discover empowher.com - and I'm honored to be a blogger with the network. Thank you for stopping by!
