Hi, I’m Karen Nixon-Carroll. I work full time for the YMCA of Western Ontario. I supervise the “Just Right” Wellness Centre at the Kellogg’s plant in partnership with the YMCA and you can also find me at the Bob Hayward YMCA on Hamilton Rd. I also teach a class at our onsite wellness centre at the Labatt Brewery. I wear many hats for the Y including teaching fitness classes, Fitness Leadership certification courses, personal fitness training, and various other things. I also work part time at the fitness centre at Fanshawe College and I work part time for my parents at the Bulk Barn in St. Thomas. It sounds like a crazy schedule, but its not that bad and the part time gigs are only a couple shifts a week.
I’m married to Gary and we live in St. Thomas with our dog Griffin and our cat Mr. Peepers. I listen to all kinds of music….whatever I’m in the mood for so I hate answering the question of favourite song / band / etc. It all depends. I’ve been to some great concerts including U2, Aerosmith, Green Day, SARSstock (ACDC, Rolling Stones, The Guess Who, Rush, and more) and I would go and see them all again!
that’s all for now!
P.S. If my pictures show up for today, I was at the radio station, the Y, Kelloggs, and Labatt’s today and I will be at the Bulk Barn tonight so stop in and say hi!
