A Life Devoted To Kids Keeps Her Young

A Life Devoted To Kids Keeps Her Young


by Coach Suzy

If there is such thing as an “earthly angel”, my good friend and loyal client, Kathy Fleckenstein (aka “Flecky”) embodies it. I have always said that it takes a certain kind of very special person to do what Kathy does. As a pediatric emergency room nurse on the south side of Chicago, I can only imagine the horror that Kathy encounters at work. She also takes regular medical mission trips to far flung, poverty stricken places on the globe, and she acts as a sponsor to a poor little girl in Africa. In between all the good work that she does, she finds time to train and participate in the sport that we all love. Please enjoy the below article that was recently written about my good friend with a soft smile and a manner that exudes caring, competence, compassion and composure…my good friend, Flecky, who I’m so very proud to know and call my friend.
