Shirley is a marvelous proponent of the joys and benefits of fitness. I have witnessed her success as a fitness trainer in the Stanford Health Improvement Program (a program that I founded). Her personal experience has shown her that enhanced physical fitness leads to enhanced “mental” fitness. Considerable pas indirect evidence of this link exists. She is a pioneer in leading us to a better understanding of these important “mind-body” connections.

As a university educator myself for the last 20 years, I recognize in Ms. Archer three characteristics of the most effective teachers: superior depth and breadth of knowledge about her field; solid, individualized plans for long-term, beneficial behavior change; and a remarkable ability to connect with people personally, to convey the passion she clearly has for her life’s work, and to motivate people to want and to work for the good things she offers. What these characteristics have meant to me in the last 2 years include changes that are easily measured (I’m 20 lbs leaner and at a peak of physical fitness I haven’t seen since college) and those that aren’t so easily measured (these changes are part of my life now, I want to be fit, eat right, be active and engaged in the world, be well). I also see classmates who have been similarly changed, and I see people who are new to the class staying in the class.
