August Wellness Triumph: Connie’s Story

Each month, the Health & Wellness Center at Magee Riverfront honors one of its clients as the “Wellness Triumph of the Month.” Today, meet Connie.

In May 1993, Connie Milek was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. After outpatient therapy treatment with physical therapist Liz Watson, Connie joined the Wellness Center in August 2016. Connie has been an elementary school teacher for an inter-city parochial school for 28 years and continues to teach today. She is usually found in the Wellness Center in the late afternoon on her way home from school. Connie comes in to utilize the NuStep, elliptical, Total Gym, and free weights. Her main motivations are her students and her son, Michael. This is the quote she lives by: “I am not a product of my circumstances, I am a product of my decisions.”
