An adventure of the heart.

“Life is why” I am moving to Nebraska in 11 days.

Life is also why I am happy to soon start a new chapter as a communications director with the American Heart Association‘s Midwest affiliate. In my new role, which I start later this month, I will help raise awareness about heart disease, the No. 1 killer of men and women, and the lifesaving work that the Association does across the country.

Literally, the American Heart Association spends millions each year to give all of us the very best chance at a longer, healthier life.

Life is a funny thing.

I started my career in softball, then joined the Paralympic Movement a few years later. And I was always impressed with the heart the athletes had. Now I’m following my own heart to Omaha (which is something I’d never thought I’d say), and in return, I’m so thankful that life has given me this new, amazing adventure, literally full of heart.

I only have one heart so I want to keep it happy.

Do me a favor, friends. Keep yours happy too.

Even if you have to give up Nike swag and move to the Midwest.

And PS – I’m starting this adventure as Jamie Blanchard Schneider, officially.
