Celebrating female leaders who have advanced in their careers because they have integrated work and life through whole-self wellness.
In Part 1 of her story Mary Wineberg shared how her “unwaivering perseverance” has supported her personal and professional goals, landing her a spot atop the podium at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and to authoring two books.
In order to have the strength to lead with gusto and grace, Mary consistently invests in her whole-wellness. Further, she is committed to supporting the whole-self wellness of future generations. As highlighted in her children’s book I Didn’t Win, Mary promotes healthy snacking (like Crunchmaster Crackers or Kind Bar) and hydrating extensively.
“I excel in many areas of wellness because we prioritize our mental, emotional, nutritional, physical, social and spiritual health as a family” said Wineberg. Wineberg makes family activities a priority and focuses on the importance of leading by example.
When asked about her areas of growth, Mary said “I am yearning for professional growth. I want to engage in more work that challenges me to grow.”
Wineberg asked for a challenge, and she certainly is chasing a good one. As Mary Wineberg runs as a candidate for Cincinnati Public Schools school board, she’s going to need to maintain a healthy, whole life to support her through the challenges ahead. “As a teacher, I know firsthand what our students and families need to succeed. As a mother, I know what it’s like to be a CPS parent. And as an Olympic Gold medalist, I have the drive to be the advocate our students need on the Cincinnati School Board.”
Can she handle it? If her track record (pun intended) is any indication, she’s certainly destined for greatness. To learn more about Mary Wineberg’s journey in running for CPS school board visit Vote Wineberg.
