About Carissa

I went to Hawkeye Community College for Fire Science and EMS. I currently volunteer as a firefighter and EMT and I love it. I started my pursuit of Personal Training my senior year of high school, I have now been a trainer for almost 3 years. I recently received a certificate for a specialty in Sports and Conditioning

Things I enjoy:
I enjoy doing things that allow me to be outdoors. Things like spending time with my dog, going for runs, playing variant sports, kayaking, fishing, and hunting. I enjoy spending time with friends in any way, shape, or form.
