I live to the beat each and every day to help patients cope through the recovery process, press through the low moments and maintain a positive outlook on life. I'm committed to supporting the "Live to the Beat" Campaign because God saved my life. In return, I give back by raising heart awareness throughout the country and sharing my story of survival from heart valve replacement and three pacemaker surgeries. I encourage everyone to take small steps towards a healthier lifestyle and wear red in honor of every family affected by heart disease and stroke. I share self-care, caregiver and heart-healthy resources throughout social media, health fairs, networking events, health ministries at local churches and throughout the community.

Meet Our Ambassadors

Hundreds of ambassadors across the country have raised their hands to help their communities Live to the Beat. They are educating people about small steps to prevent heart attack and stroke as part of their day-to-day work.
