Empowerment! Wellness

Empowerment! - The process of becoming stronger and more confident.

Wellness- The state of being in good health!

These two words together give a whole new meaning for someone living with disease such as Parkinson's or Multiple Sclerosis.  When someone is not feeling their best, they want to feel better and get stronger!  Let us help you feel EMPOWERED and live a stronger, healthier life!

About me

My name is Wendy Wilkerson.  I received both my Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science in Education degrees in Exercise Science and Wellness from Old Dominion University.  I have been in the wellness/rehabilitation field for 12 years with experience in cardiac rehabilitation, orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation as an Exercise Physiologist and Clinical Exercise Specialist.  I am a Rock Steady Boxing certified coach and PWR! certified instructor.  My passion lies with special populations and helping them to achieve optimal wellness with whatever disease they are facing.  In my spare time, I like to spend quality time with family and friends and love on my boxer puppies, Scout and Zoe.
