Meet the Team!
I was first introduced to kickboxing style workouts while attending Iowa State University where I received my B.S. degree in Architecture. After graduation, my career moved Brock and I to the Des Moines/Pella area, which made Prairie City a perfect central location for our home. I was very excited to find an active fitness Community and a place for me to continue my love of kickboxing.
In 2018, I received my group exercise training certification through NETA. I am thankful to be a part of Body Shop Fitness and have the ability to give back to our Community! Along with this adventure, I look forward to becoming an even stronger, healthier and active role model for my two young children Wyndam and Rowyn!
I’ve been in the fitness industry for 10 years. I really started to find a love for fitness at Simpson College where I graduated with a degree in exercise science. In 2009, I started working at the Wellmark Well for Life Center and later became a group exercise instructor and personal trainer there. While working at Wellmark I became a NETA certified personal trainer and group exercise instructor.
I have enjoyed training fitness classes in spin, strength, intervals, boot camps, kickboxing, basics, and water aerobics. In 2013, I started working as a science teacher in the PCM school district. I am so grateful to be able to continue working in the fitness industry as a part of Body Shop Fitness even though it is no longer my full time job.
