File it under career highlights: The day we spent at Jazzercise founder Judi Sheppard Missett’s house in Vista was both memorable and inspiring. Judi asked me not to divulge her age, but let’s just say that she looks fantastic, and is full of wisdom.
Read the story from the May issue and take a photo tour of her home here. In the shot above, associate art director Gloria Tebleman and I learn a routine from Judi and her daughter, Shanna.

That’s Judi’s husband Jack in the pool. The triathlete swims almost daily, and was more than happy to jump in during the photo shoot.
