Edie was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2013 at the age of 60. She developed Parkinson’s symptoms after undergoing several surgeries and chemotherapy in her earlier battle with breast cancer. After a year-long “pity party,” Edie found the help she needed through a local support group where she met another person living with Parkinson’s who shared his passion for exercising. “I became a workout junkie,” she says. “I have benefited physically, mentally and emotionally from my active lifestyle.”
Edie is passionate about helping fellow PWP’s (people with Parkinson’s) discover the benefits of “working up a sweat” by engaging in a variety of exercise classes and activities – her favorites include strength training, boxing and spin classes. She teaches Parkinson’s programs at a variety of Parkinson’s support group meetings as well as educational events in both Virginia and Southwest Florida; her goal is to encourage PWP’s to find their “happy” and then make it happen!
