Cancer Exercise Specialist - Emily Wyatt
Emily has always had a passion for health and wellness. Growing up she was involved in basketball, volleyball, track, and golf. But, it wasn’t until her second year into college where she really discovered the area of work she was meant for. “I was working with patients who were not only struggling with their weight and other health issues, but also overcoming fears that were holding them back from living their best life. Helping them overcome those obstacles was one of the best rewards.” She’s dedicated, with a big heart that desires to help better the health of those around her.
She graduated from UMKC with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Science. Emily has been in the healthcare field for over six years now and her passion for fitness continues to rise. She currently stays active by boxing, CrossFit, running and hiking. She currently sits on the board of Living In Vitality and is working on her personal training certificate.
She believes staying active is much more than just keeping your body in shape, but also taking care of your mental, emotional, and spiritual health as well.
