The real-life superheroes of the BEST community have the most amazing superpower: sharing their wellness practices with each other.
Jennifer McCarthy is one of those superheroes.
Jennifer, a language instructor, artist and musician, moved from the East Coast with her husband in the year 2000 to Moses Lake and became a mom to two children.
