Korinne Armour

As a child, Korinne Armour fainted frequently when she stood. Doctors considered her malnourished, despite her very hearty appetite. As she got older, the symptoms got worse. After numerous doctor visits and a series of specialists, it was determined that Korinne’s heart was stopping for a considerable amount of time and would need a pacemaker.
Today, Korinne is on her second pacemaker and is an active mother of three (ages 11, 7 and 5). She enjoys cycling, baking, and volunteering for various groups including her church, PTA, Girl Scouts and the American Heart Association. Korinne knows the importance of taking care of her body and strives to be a good example for her family.
 
“It's imperative that I take care of my body with a diet full of fresh, unprocessed foods, lean meat, lots of water (I drink 100oz daily) and exercise. I'm really busy with my family so we incorporate family time into meal prep and exercise. I feel like I've set a good example for my kids because being healthy isn't something we have to do but something that can be fun when we do it together.”
 
As a Go Red For Women ambassador and advocate for women’s heart health, Korinne’s advice is to “love your body, do right for your health, trust your gut, see your doctor and secure a longer life for you and your family.”
