Meet Priscilla Mathis!
Priscilla is one of our newest members. She was the very first Founding Mama in Moorpark and we couldn't be happier to have her in this Village! Priscilla has an energy about her that is contagious! You can find Priscilla at Tierra Rejada Park at Stroller Strides with her daughter Harper and son Hudson. If you haven't met Priscilla yet don't hesitate to introduce yourself because she is sure to make you feel welcomed!
I grew up in Huntington Beach, California. Surf City! I've always been terrible at surfing though. I'm more of a paddle board girl.
Tell us about your family:
My husband, Scott, and I have been married for almost 9 years now. We have two beautiful children! My daughter, Harper, just turned 5 years old! My son, Hudson, is 2 1/2 years old. We also have an English Bulldog named Duke and he's basically in charge of the family.
Before moving to Moorpark, I was a teacher in Orange County. I taught 4th grade for eight years and 1st grade for two years. Today I'm a very happy stay at home mom! I look forward to returning to the classroom once my kiddos are in school though.
What was your childhood ambition?
I always wanted to be an event planner. I love a good party.
What is the furthest you have been away from home?
My husband and I honeymooned in Bali, Indonesia and it was amazing!
How did you find Fit4Mom?
When I first moved here my husband's high school friend, Marianne Rosenstien, told me about the group. I didn't join at the time. Then I saw that you were coming to Moorpark and decided I just couldn't stay away!
How has Fit4Mom impacted your life?
The physical benefits are obvious, but I really want to touch on the amazing mental benefits the community provides! Fit4Mom is a true tribe of supportive, kind, and strong women! I love having a community to be a part of. I've always been about women supporting women and there is nothing I love more in the world than seeing that happen. This is a true group of women who love and support one another. There is no stranger in this tribe and that is the type of community I love being a part of. It's so important to feel supported and I wish I would have joined when my little was a newborn! Super happy and blessed to be here now!
What's your favorite exercise?
Does working my mouth muscles singing nursery rhymes count? I love relays of any kind! Working with others and cheering each other on.
What's your proudest moment?
Delivering both my children. I almost kicked the bucket with my last delivery and don't take the miracle of birth lightly. Moms are SO strong and God is SO good!
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us.
My husband and I used to rock climb together! Before children. My favorite spot is Red Rock Canyon outside of Las Vegas. I'm afraid of heights, so this was something I used to do that even surprised myself!
