I am Audra Mathews and I am a 43 year old dental hygienist in the Atlanta area. The picture above is me with my beautiful niece, Emily.
Let me preface all the following with the fact that, in my past I was a competitive collegiate swimmer with a fondness of jogging and biking as a young adult; basically, I had a fitness filled life.
