In Spanish, ‘jubilacion’ is the word for retirement, and while we’re sad to see our Gym Manager, Nancy Nelson, go, we’re jubilant for all the adventures that lie ahead for her. Nancy came to us from Portland, OR two years ago where she had established her own Parkinson’s-specific fitness business. We got to know her as a volunteer at our annual retreat in Scottsdale and eventually lured her to the warmth and sunshine of the desert. Our gym members have come to know her kindness, humor and excitement, both in and out of class. Her colleagues treasure her thoughtful, fun-loving and motivational nature.
Nancy is looking forward to spending time visiting friends and family during retirement, but we have a sneaking suspicion she may not be able to stay away from the PD community for too long. Please take a moment to wish her well in person, via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or snail mail (140 W Ft. Lowell Rd., Tucson, AZ 85705). She will be here through the end of the year.
