Hi! I am currently the Program Manager for a group of Continuous Care Retirement Communities across the country. Before this position, I was the Wellness Center Manager at a CCRC. In addition, I do small group personal training as well as in-home personal training. Previously, I held the position of the Fitness Center Supervisor for Saddlebrook Resort and Spa in Tampa, Florida until I moved to Indiana. I have been a personal trainer and Pilates instructor for over 2 years now and I also have 4+ years experience in teaching group fitness classes such as Aqua Gym, Boot Camp, and Sports Conditioning. Before moving to Florida, I worked for RecSports at Indiana University as a Program Assistant for Fitness and Wellness as well as a Circuit Strength Instructor. I love to work with people of all ages and helping people age well is my top priority. I recently finished a Master's in Gerontology at University of South Florida and hope to make a career out of helping people to age in a healthy way.

    Joy has done a wonderful job working with me! I am a 52 year old female who had been gaining 5 pounds a year and thought that was the way "it" was going to be. Joy has been working with me for 4 months. Since that time I have LOST 25 pounds and MULTIPLE inches and can MOVE my body again. I have more energy as well. She was patient with me since I had not truly exercised for MANY MANY years. She taylors workouts for me and is a great encouragement. I feel like aging will be a much more enjoyable process and I will continue following her direction. THANKS JOY!
