Marti Oltmann ~ Comox, BC

I am so very excited, and honoured, to have been chosen as a Healthy Role Models ambassador for this journey!  This is such a powerful group, full of wonderful women. 

My name is Marti, and this is journey number six for me. I moved to Comox in February of 2020, but have been on Vancouver Island since September of 2013. I work as an RVT at a veterinary hospital in Parksville. Honestly, I love my job. 

I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was diagnosed about 20 years ago. Right now, it’s controlled very well. But, if you are a member of the Chronic Condition club, believe me when I say I feel your pain. I am living proof that movement is medicine. 

Healthy Role Models has brought me out of my shell. First journey (or two, maybe more), I was far too shy to go to an event. I progressed to going with a friend (also the reason I joined). The day came that she couldn’t attend, so I went on my own. Recently, I hosted my own event. If I can do this, anyone can!  Push that fear aside. Come to events. You are so welcome to join any and all of them. 

One more thing!  I LOVE RUNNING!!!  I want everyone to love something as much as I love running. Whether it’s across the street, or an ultramarathon, if you ran it - you my chosen sister, are a runner!  

I am so glad you’re here with me. Trust the process. Reach out for help when you need it. You’ve got this. ❤️
