The Unsung Hero program recognizes ZIN™ Members around the world for their outstanding contributions to their communities, and for their ability to inspire others. This month, November 2016, we celebrate ZIN™ Member, Greg Parnell of California, USA, for his passionate dedication to mentoring his colleagues in behavioral health as they join the ZIN™ Community.
In 2015, in addition to his work as Director of Education for Crestwood Behavioral Health, Inc., Greg began teaching Zumba® classes for the clients and also for the staff members. Greg began seeing the impact the classes were having, not only in the lives of the clients, but in the lives of his colleagues as well. After receiving continuous feedback about how their own lives were changing and the positive effects that were taking place in their community, Greg made it his mission to help his colleagues become ZIN Members and start teaching their own classes. Just one year later, over 20 Crestwood team members have become ZIN Members, and Greg strives to offer them support as a fellow ZIN. Always there to answer a question, to share teaching tips, or even to go to a ZIN™ Jam session together…Greg is a constant friend, demonstrating beautifully how we all are better together.
Greg, thank you for believing in the greatness of those around you, and for our dedication to bringing Zumba Fitness into the lives of others.
