Born and raised in California, Herra spent her weekends hiking, kayaking, and frolicking through sunny days. Adulthood came all too soon, and now she spends her days as Healthcare Administrator, but is also a full-time Mama. Her fitness inspiration originated in 2014, when cabin fever from the cold became untenable. Her love for all things HIIT, big & heavy weights, and supporting businesses has remained consistent since then. While not a writer by any means, she hopes to contribute to aSweatLife by helping new Mamas prepare for and adjust to their new lives. In Herra's nonexistent free time, she loves to indulge in tacos from Big & Little's, travel, and spend time with her tiny human.
