5 Questions With Dr. Woelffer:
What was your first concert?
Prince, 1984, Minneapolis, Minnesota (where I am from). The Purple Rain Tour. It was awesome! I was 14. My buddy’s mom dropped us off in her cool Dodge van, not minivan, and waited for us in the parking lot until it was over. We were too young to be there– it was perfect!
What’s your favorite part about your job?
Giving people a hope-filled plan for a healthy future. I love seeing people achieving their fitness goals.
What chance encounter changed your life forever?
Meeting Dr. Robert Hatcher. He gave me my job here, and he guided me every step of the way to this great place I LOVE working at every day.
What’s the best thing you got from your parents?
They gave me a philosophy to be positive about everything. They would say, “If you believe you can do it, you probably can.” It even feels good to say it now, as a grown-up!
What skill would you like to master?
I would love to be able to play the piano– I have taken lessons 3 times in my life! Turns out it takes practice. 🙂
