Mélanie Leclerc, 44, has a passion for training and healthy nutrition, is a mother of 2 grown-up daughters aged 16 and 18, works in a health research laboratory and is also an entrepreneur in the field of fitness-motivation-nutrition, through her facebook page: "Ma Santé - Melanie Leclerc".
She has always been a very active person, but 12 years ago an unsuspected disease suddenly appeared and changed her life forever; chronic rheumatoid arthritis. It was quite a shock because it touched her core being, it made her daily life difficult and it forced her on sick leave for 3 years, due to the side effects of the drugs and her weakened immune system. However, she used this event to come out stronger than ever and even more successful!
She has participated in many running events, to raise funds for the Arthritis Society from 2010 to 2015 and when Arthro Action folded, she decided to continue her mission by becoming an entrepreneur as a wellness motivator. She is now well controlled with the medication and is using her life experience to pay it forward and inspire people to take charge of their health, not tomorrow, but NOW !!
A very impressive and motivating woman, we are very proud to have her on our team!
