Amelia Kirkland | Friend, Health Enthusiast & Foodie
I can't remember how I met Amelia or how long ago...but let just say it's been a very long time. I love her enthusiasm for everything she takes on. From doing Ironman's, to searching out the best healthy food in every place she visits or finding the best craft beer a place has to offer. In Amelia's professional life, she is the assistant director of the laboratory at First Health of the Carolinas. In her off time she can be found at our favorite pilates studio, Mind Your Body, or cooking up some wicked healthy foods from local farmers markets. Amelia's style is classic with a twist. She loves and wears our designers so well. We caught up with her and asked a few of our favorite questions...read on to find out a little more about one of our favorite women...
