Health and Wellness Director
Prior to moving to Huntington, West Virginia Sarah and her husband lived in Birmingham, Alabama where she worked as the Coordinator of Fitness and Wellness at the University of Alabama Birmingham for three and half years. Sarah joins the Kids in Motion program with a Master degree in Exercise Physiology and Bachelors degree in Health Human Performance and Recreation.
Born and raised in northern Wisconsin she first found her passion for health and wellness as a youth while spending summers and winters running, biking, skiing and learning to cook farm to table dinners. Never having lost her appetite for recreational activities and nutrition Sarah recognizes the need for more education and youth specific fitness programming. She is excited to be bringing her passion and excitement for fitness and nutrition to Kids in Motion program and Tri-State area.
Raised in Huntington, WV, Liz Graduated from Marshall University in December 2014 with a degree in Exercise Science and started at the YMCA with Kids in Motion in January 2015 as their Assistant Director. Her previous work experiences include working at a family camp in Wisconsin and being a babysitter. Liz had an internship with Kids in Motion in January through May of 2014 where she met Jamie and got familiar with the program. Her love for sport and kids is the reason Kids in Motion has become so important to her. Liz sees the program going further in the athletic world and hopes that the tri state will soon recognize Kids in Motion as a competitor in fitness gains and sport specific training. She thinks that the program can go far and reach most YMCA’s in the state while becoming a popular program for fighting childhood obesity.
