Instructor, Oria Jacobs: "It's been great teaching evening classes and getting to know the 'night time' mamas! Roni is one of those mamas I've had the pleasure to get to know. Roni is always so positive and motivated to start her workout when most of us are getting dinner ready. Her son, Henry, is always strapped and ready to stride it out with all of us, too."
This month we recognize RONI MURDOCK for her accomplishment and dedication to fitness, motherhood and life! Our Brea, Fullerton, Placentia and Yorba Linda Stroller Strides Team would like to say, "THANK YOU, RONI," for being part of our Stroller Strides family!
1. Who are the members of your family?
My husband, Brett, our son, Henry (15 months) and myself.
2. What is or was your career?
I am a Palliative Outreach Liason and Gerontologist for St. Michael Hospice. I work with doctors, hospitals, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities and families that need end of life care for a patient or loved one.
3. How long have you been a member of Stroller Strides of North Orange County and what has it done for you?
8 months or so, but I wish I had started sooner. I love it!
4. What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?
How much fun it is! Every holiday and adventure's joys are magnified with a little one.
5. Favorite website(s)?
Instagram, Trip Advisor, and all the discount sites (Groupon, Living Social, Baby Steals)
6. List three current obsessions.
Coffee, late night DVR (maybe that's why I'm also obsessed with coffee...), and green smoothies.
7. What is your child's/children's favorite thing about you or favorite thing that you do?
Henry loves my hair. Just never know when it will be a gentle stroke or a rough pull!
8. Any tips for other moms out there?
Use your support system! We are very lucky to have a big extended family that always want to watch Henry. And, although sometimes it's hard, we let them! Henry now has a strong relationship with his grandmas and his aunts. And, our marriage is stronger and happier for it.
