April 2019 Mom of the Month: Kristin Havican

-Hometown: Joliet

-Fit4Mom Member since: February 2017

-Members of your Family: My husband Bill, and three girls: Maddie (11), Liz (3), and Abby (1).

-Current/Previous Career: I worked at the Defense Contract Audit Agency for 14 years, first as an Auditor and then a Quality Assistant.

-How did you find Fit4Mom? I saw the stroller strides demo at the Troy WBO kids fest and talked to Kit at the booth. I will forever be grateful for stepping out of my comfort zone and walking into that first class.

-What has Fit4Mom done for you (or meant to you)? Fit4Mom gave me a much needed outlet to work out WITH my kids. It has given me the energy to keep up with 3 rambunctious girls. Plus, Liz and I have made some amazing friends and Abby already has baby BFF, even if she doesn't realize it yet!

-What was your childhood ambition? To be an accountant

-What does motherhood mean to you? Making memories and messes, being totally exhausted yet utterly in love, and seeing the wonderment of every day life through tiny eyes.

-What is your favorite exercise? Wall sits

-What is your proudest moment? Completing my MBA while on bed rest with Maddie. I didn't get to walk in the ceremony but I got the degree!

-What are three of your favorite things (besides your family)? Reading, checking out Breweries, and finding new parks to play at with the girls.

-If we asked your partner what they think your best qualities are, what would they say? Bill's response was "Oh my goodness, what kind of trap question is that?" And that is the type of answer you get after being together for 20 years

-Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us: I happened to be at a work conference in Conneticut during the first game of the 2013 World Series. So a few coworkers and I bought tickets and drove out to Boston. It was an amazing experience to get to attend a game at Fenway and a World Series game at that!
