Today, as is every Wednesday, was a great morning. Such great energy and community flowing through the group as the NPNO tribe members performed the PR workout. For various reasons, the monthly PR workout is a more recent trend for the tribe of the Crescent City. In thinking about this new staple to the monthly routine, we figured that we had no reason to stop at just the workout. So, NPNO is proud to post the first edition of the NOLA Member Spotlight. Each month, we will have a blog post spotlighting one of our tribe members, getting a peek into their lives, and showing off these people’s badassedness (yes it’s a word we created and are standing by it). So to kick us off for the first monthly edition of the spotlight, we did a little Q&A with one of the Tribe’s favorite people, Emily Ferris.
