Meet Jelyse

My passion is business and health. As a former Recruiter for John Deere, my life consisted of suitcases, hotels and airport terminals. I loved my job but hated the stress. Consequently, my health suffered.

One day, I asked my manager if I could teach work-life balance classes for our department over the lunch hour. I fell in love with employee wellness and realized the dire market need. Since that time, I’ve developed programming for organizations like IBM and Rex Hospital. I hold several certifications through YogaFit and the Aerobics & Fitness Association of America and have taught classes ranging from boot camp to Pilates. Currently, I am a second year MBA student at NC State University studying Marketing and Data Analytics.

Workout@Work

Workout@Work is a digital, preventative health tool providing fitness and stress management techniques to employees.
