Hey! My name is Shana Redenbaugh and I am FIT4MOM Chattanooga’s photographer and historian! I moved to Chattanooga at the very end of 2012 with my sweet husband, Steve, bringing our daughter GreyAnn into the mix about a year and a half later. We live on 10.5 acres just north of Chatt in Harrison, TN where we enjoy our 2 dogs, 4 cats, 12 chickens and 2 crazy goats.
I was born in Kingston, NY, raised in Tucson Arizona, and now have a daughter with two first names! Haha, I’m southern now ya’ll. Once upon a time I worked as a registered nurse, however, I left it behind to follow my husband around to a few different countries, multiple states, and just upgraded from stay at home wife to stay at home mom. I have to admit, I became pretty inactive, reaching my all time heaviest months AFTER I gave birth to my daughter. I took on other projects, braved the competitive world of photography and just claimed I was too busy to lose weight and that I was happy where I was.
Thank you God for FIT4MOM because that was all it took to get me on the right track of taking proper care of myself. I’m still busy but now I have the energy to accomplish so much. I’ve lost 40 pounds, exercise is a regular part of my (and my daughter’s) life, we’ve made so many friends and have found the accountability I needed by joining FIT4MOM.
