This past summer, Heron’s Key was on a mission to find the perfect candidate to oversee the wellness program. When a certified holistic health/life coach and personal trainer walked through the door, the search was over.
Angela Winks comes to Heron’s Key with more than 13 years of experience working with seniors in the health and fitness world. Angela has an unmatched passion, a joyful spirit and determination to enhance the wellness program.
Since being hired, Angela has brought a refreshing perspective to Heron’s Key. One of her main goals for improving the wellness program is to help integrate independent living residents with residents in assisted living and skilled nursing. She is beyond excited to see relationships grow and flourish. Angela says that there are new, exciting opportunities in the works, and she looks forward to supporting residents in every way she can.
So far during her time at Heron’s Key, Angela has made connections with residents and staff members. She is proud to be working for such a welcoming community. She says the best part of working in the fitness program is learning from the residents she coaches and bonding with them over wellness. She loves being around people who inspire and encourage her in all aspects of life.
Angela grew up in Oregon and Washington with her parents and siblings that she adores. When away from Heron’s Key, Angela likes venturing outdoors, writing and playing guitar. She is a proud mom of one daughter who is currently thriving in Seattle as an artist and barber. Angela lights up when talking about her daughter saying, “She is magic!”
With a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and kinesiology, Angela has been able to establish an extraordinary career for herself. The residents at Heron’s Key could not be in better hands, and they enjoy working with Angela.
Angela knows it is of the utmost importance to put one’s health first. She is looking forward to showing Heron’s Key residents different ways they can stay healthy and active both mentally and physically.
Angela is ready to meet all residents who are looking for new practices and strategies to improve their health and well-being. Feel free to introduce yourself to Angela and welcome her to the Heron’s Key family!
