Gift Certificate for Shari Fish Wellness FITeens Pre-College Workshop

Presented by Shari Fish Wellness FITeens Pre-College Workshop in collaboration with The Women’s Fund for Health, Education and Research, the interactive workshops are slated for Tuesday, May 24, and Sunday, June 26, 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Manor House and The Houstonian Club. Shari Fish, M.Ed., CWC, LPCi, a certified wellness coach and mother of three college-age students, leads each workshop.

“Having all the information from this session I feel so much less overwhelmed and more confident with my upcoming college experience,” said graduating senior Elaine T., who participated in the FITeens Pre-College Workshop earlier this month.

Limited to 20 participants, the Class of 2011 FITeens Pre-College Workshops are slated for 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and include a healthy lunch and snacks, a FITeens workbook, giveaways, and the book, What About Me?, A girls guide to health, published by The Women’s Fund. The gift certificate, presented in a beautifully appointed gift box (photo), is $185.00 per person and may be purchased online or by check payable to Shari Fish Wellness, 12727 Kimberley Ln., Ste. 202, Houston, TX 77024.

The workshop will provide participants with a healthy perspective on handling the stress and excitement associated with this major life transition. Students will find an open forum for discussing expectations, tempering angst and formulating a clear plan for their first months on campus. Additionally, each participant will learn hands-on life lessons to apply in time management, budget/finances, community building, exercise, avoiding the “Freshman 15”, Summer “To Do” List, drinking, dating and sex, stressing out, self esteem and sleep issues.

Speakers will include OB/GYN Merrill Lewen, M.D., yoga instructor Jennifer Buergermeister, Shari Fish, and her daughter, Stephanie, who will share her personal insights from a student’s perspective. Stephanie will graduate from the University of Texas (UT) at Austin with a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Work in May.
“At a time when young women are about to make one of the biggest transitions of their life, this fun and interactive event is a great way to promote support systems for them,” notes Katherine Stackel, The Women’s Fund Education & Outreach Manager. “Research has shown that when women are provided with tools to make healthy goals and decisions, they are more likely to bounce back from bad situations as a result of those resiliency skills. Our connection with Shari Fish Wellness allows us to share tools for staying on track with healthy lifestyles, building a community of women who are advocates for their own health!”

The Women’s Fund for Health Education and Research is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing women and girls in the Houston area with the tools they need to be advocates for their health.

Workshops Transition Seniors Girls to College Life

Houston – Mar. 21, 2011 . . . As college acceptances start pouring in next month and students see their academic prospects, parents wonder how their high school senior will handle leaving home and transitioning to independent living.

“There’s a lot more involved in going off to college than choosing a roommate and picking out your bedding,” cautions Shari Fish, M.Ed., CWC, LPCi and founder of Shari Fish Wellness FITeens. “After giving your daughter every opportunity for success these past 18 years, don’t send her off to college unprepared for her new independence,” says the certified wellness coach and mother of three college-age students.
