My name is Jess and I am a former Attorney turned stay at home mom
turned Fit4Mom franchise owner. I was born and raised in Darnestown,
Maryland and moved to San Diego, CA for law school. After practicing law
for several years I decided that being miserable all the time and never
seeing my daughter was not what I wanted for my life. So I quit my job,
packed up my husband (a Louisville native), daughter, and our two
labrador retrievers and somehow made it here. We are in love with this
City and all it has to offer. San Diego will always have a special place in
our hearts but now Louisville feels like home. I am so excited to bring
Fit4Mom and a little piece of California to you!
Hi, my name is Cassie! I was born in IL, raised in CA and KY but also spent some time in FL! My hubby's name is Ryan and we have all girls in this house! Keightley (yellow lab, 8 years old), Hadley (6) and Mila (4) and Hammie the hampster (1).
I am a former Master Hair Color Specialist from an Aveda salon and loved it. After learning that we were moving to Lexington, KY for my husbands past job, I decided to give the whole stay at home Mom thing a try! I loved it but it was HARD. Especially in a new city with a family and zero friends. Life became much more exciting when I found FIT4MOM. I fell in love with EVERYTHING about it. We later moved back to Louisville and I couldn't imaging life without it.
We hope that you enjoy FIT4MOM Louisville just as much as Jess (my business partner wifey, haha) and I do. Life would not be the same without this amazing community.
I am Jessica K! I was born and raised in Louisville! I graduated from
the University of Dayton, and have my Masters degree from UofL. During
the day, I am an Investment Planner for Northwestern Mutual. I have a
two year old, Olivia and am expecting my second child, Max, in July. I
have been working out with Fit4Mom since June 2015 and joined the
Fit4Mom team in December 2015. I am a ACE Certified fitness instructor
and have LOVED the Fit4Mom Community!
Hi! My name is Heather Howard. I was born in Fort Thomas Kentucky and have lived in Texas, Ohio, Georgia, and back to Kentucky!
I went to school at Northern Kentucky University for a bachelors degree in international studies with a concentration in Asian cultures and my minor was in Japanese. It's a mouthful to say I went to learn that I just like people :).
I moved to Louisville in November 2008 for my now husband and a job in importing and exporting. In the spring of 2010 I was laid off during the recession.
I researched internally for a solution and found love of fitness and people! Now I have an ACE Personal Training Certification since 2012. I teach TRX and have an adorable son named John with one on the way! When I found stroller strides I knew it was for me. A club of mom's gathered together to better themselves and be a great example for children couldn't be more on my path. Fitness is my passion and my children are my love. To combine those into one activity is priceless...
I can't wait to continue to share those days with you ladies. Thank you for letting me.
I was born & raised in NKY. Not a fan of the winters I decided to attend college somewhere warmer. Somewhere I could work on my studies & tan! After living in FL for 13 years, my husband & I decided to move back closer to family. Plus I don't tan, so it was time to take my freckled self back! I didn't know anyone in Louisville and luckily stumbled upon Stroller Strides. I have always been athletic and active so partnered with the village, this was a perfect fit. I loved it so much, I decided to become an AFAA certified personal trainer & get Stroller Strides certified to teach classes of my own!more
My name is Elizabeth Steinert and I was born and raised in Louisville,
KY. I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a degree in
Education of the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing (P-12) and Elementary
Education. I later went to Bellarmine for my masters as a Literacy
Specialist (P-12). I am currently a teacher of the deaf and I focus on
language development with preschool and elementary students. I
absolutely LOVE what I do, but I also love to MOVE! After having
Adeline, I found it difficult to find time for me to exercise. Last
December I found Stroller Strides and have absolutely fallen in love! I
am now certified through Fit4Mom to teach Body Back. This is an
amazing group of mamas and I am so grateful to be a part of this
Hi, my name is Amanda Atherton. I am a mama to 2 little boys: Liam (6 yrs old) and Madden (1 yr old). We have a crazy chihuahua named Georgia (9 yrs old) and my fabulous husband's name is Will. Will and I are high school sweethearts and are so proud and excited about the life we have built together after meeting at ages 17 and 18. We live a life we used to dream about :)
I found Fit4Mom when my 2nd child was 4 months old. Prior to that pregnancy, I was a runner and loved putting in hours at the gym. I was ready to break the post pregnancy mold and get myself back and meeting my Village here in Louisville, gave me that and much more!
I am honored to be a part of this amazing team and eager to bring my thrill and passion to your life!
Hi! My name is Carla Walker. I was born and raised in southern Maine, went to Providence College in RI, and then moved to Boston, MA, where I lived for the next 15 years. My husband and I moved to Louisville in the Spring of 2015 and I had my son, Tristan, in the Spring of 2016. I am a New England girl at heart, but thanks to Fit4Mom I am really starting to enjoy my new home, too!
My undergrad degree is in Elementary and Special Education and I recently earned my Master’s degree in Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis. I have worked as a teacher and as an event planner/executive assistant and have learned I love both worlds. For right now, though, I am enjoying being a stay at home mom and am looking forward to my new venture with Fit4Mom!more
Hey! My name is Jessica Fahr and I was born and raised in Michigan. My husband Matt and I are high school sweethearts and have been married for 6 years. We have a beautiful daughter Mackenzie, who is 2 and in May just welcomed our son Connor!
I was born and raised just outside of Indianapolis and went to Butler University. My husband is a Louisville native and was a major influence for me to come here when deciding to get my doctorate in Audiology. I have been practicing full time since graduating from UofL in 2012 and truly love what I do; helping people hear better. When I had my daughter, Izzie, I was dying to start getting active but still wanted to be able to spend time with her. The Stroller Strides program started when she was almost 6 months old. We joined immediately and absolutely fell in love. She is 2 now and needless to say, the program has been a major part of both of our lives since then. I am so excited to now be part of an amazing team of mamas!!!more
Hi, my name is Lauren! I have lived in Louisville almost all of my life. After graduating with a business degree in 2010, I worked in Human Resources for 6 years before becoming a stay at home mom to my two daughters, Savannah (3) and Lilah (1).
I've been passionate about health and wellness for as long as I can remember, and have completed 5 half marathons and 1 full marathon. Wanting to branch out from running alone and meet some other mama friends, I decided to check out Fit4Mom and fell in love with not just the workouts, but the village. It has truly been a life changer for me and I am so excited to join this amazing team and continue to share my love of fitness!more
My grandma always said, “life's an adventure" and every step of my journey brings new truth to those words.
