Dottie is a senior at Fitchburg State University, studying exercise sports science and psychology, and is spending her winter/spring term interning with our fitness team. While at RiverMead, she is gaining valuable experience working with the senior population. This includes observing orientations, assessments, and consultations. She has also seen the comprehensive fitness program we offer to residents, including group exercise classes, balance, mobility, strength, mindfulness, yoga, core, interval training, and dance.
Dottie has participated in unique group activities such as Cardio Drumming and Move Free. These activities were both designed with the needs of the senior living population in mind. She enjoys seeing residents participate in programs, have fun, and learn to live a healthier lifestyle.
Dottie looks forward to working in a fitness center environment with residents or clients upon graduation.
