Judy Genshaft. Inspired by her leadership for students and alumni, she works in a tri county area. Students and alumni research is applied and utilized to empower a state of Florida health that we can be proud of. Thank you for your leadership and for being a role model for women and children to look up to. Please continue to support all health and fitness initiatives.
I attended USF for a semester in the early 1990's and I weighed in over 200 lbs. I was tanned and sun shined. It took time for my inner sunshine to become evident on the outside. You would never believe the difference in my before 1991 jr. year photos to my 2003 graduation photos. The difference is the serenity prayer and this is the foundation for inspire well-being!
As a manager of behavioral health case management, director and trainer, I moved towards a career in leadership and my first wellness leader was Dr. Michael Clark. It is because of USF's beautiful Tampa campus wellness center and the cute little mini one in St. Pete that I moved my body and my mind together to obtain amazing results. It's not just researching it's the application of our research that counts.
One of my best memories on the USF campus is rollerblading along side the St. Pete campus on the waterfront on Christmas Eve 2000. Above me flew a small plane with a trail behind it which stated, "will you marry me?" that evening at the Lobster Pot on St. Pete Beach, Robbie Nelson proposed to me and I said, "yes".
I am part author, speaker, teacher and student and I am all mom. What I enjoy most about teaching and speaking is looking into the audience and seeing a reflection of God. I am Elizabeth and my name means "consecrated to God". I have been writing since elementary school. I am a highly sensitive em-path, which means I often feel the experiences of others so much that I have to be careful about my environments, relationships and friendships because there are times when sensitive people turn to addictions to cope with their sensitivity. I have learned over the years how to train my spirit, mind and body and I believe that the arts are an amazing creative outlet to express empathy. Caring without co dependency. Meditation, fitness and art help me to preserve my child like consciousness that manifests solutions where there are needs.
