Pumps Fitness Client Spotlight: Gayla Domke

Gayla-DomkeMy name is Gayla Domke. I was born and raised in Valparaiso, but headed to Clemson, South Carolina, to earn a PhD in Mathematical Sciences. I taught at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia, for many years. In 2003 many changes happened. I became a single mom, and we moved back to Valparaiso to be near our family. While I am a Super Woman and could probably have survived single motherhood surrounded by my village of friends in Atlanta, I decided to share my daughter with my family. My parents are currently in their late 80’s. We decided that we would build a house to accommodate myself, my daughter, and my parents. That way everyone could spend time together, and we could help each other on a daily basis. That works well most days.
