Dr. Tess Thomas - Sawyer Photography - BSA 0616

Family practitioner Dr.Tess Thomas, 45, stays motivated by the positive energy she gets from both her family and her career. She credits lots of laughter and a healthy dose of organization to her ability to stay fabulous.

Has your perception of 40 changed since you
were younger?
I thought hitting 40 would mean not having fun and enjoying life. But, actually, now I have the ability to make my own schedule and more flexibility in my life.

How do you stay fit and healthy?
I am a Beachbody® coach and I enjoy their at-home workout videos. I don’t have to go to a gym! In my free time, I coach other women to lose weight. I also enjoy running long distances and have run several marathons to date. I’ve got the New York City Marathon on my personal “bucket list.”

What is your favorite way to give back to
your community?
Every month for the last three years, my family and I have done a volunteer project, all with a family-friendly focus. Our favorite ones have been with Project Open Hand doing food deliveries to those who are homebound. It’s important to teach children at a young age to give back—it builds empathy and fosters community involvement.

How do you maintain your life balance?  
I have my WHOLE LIFE on my iPhone calendar with every minute accounted for—I am good with time management.
