Sarah Plummer Semper Sarah thinking

Welcome to my blog.  This is a place where I have shared stories of past and present adventures. For awhile, my entries covered quite a mix of stuff from military experiences from years ago, to yoga, current professional endeavors, international travel, health and wellness, integrative nutrition, and various sporting competitions. Now, the focus is more on optimal wellness and functional resilience.

So thanks for joining me – “Semper Sarah” – on my journey, and remember “Small changes make big differences.”
