From our Board Members:
The American Heart Association works tirelessly to help improve people’s lives!
It is my honor to volunteer for this organization. They lead with heart!
With a family history of heart disease as well as friends and co-workers who have faced the challenges of cardiovascular disease and stroke, there is a personal desire to support the mission of the American Heart Association.
Through our collective efforts, we can make a tremendous impact within our communities.
I am fortunate my employer, The Principal Financial Group, encourages employees to be actively involved in their community.
Additionally, I have a personal responsibility to my community to make it better.
Involvement with the American Heart Association is one way I am able to support my community by improving our quality of life fostered through a healthy lifestyle.
