Before joining NutriFormance as a Personal Trainer, Linnea completed her undergraduate degree at Southeast Missouri State University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. While attending SEMO, she competed in cross-country and indoor/outdoor track & field. She specialized in the steeplechase, 1500, and 5k. She received second team all Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) honors for cross-country and All- OVC honors for outdoor track & field. She was a Southeast Scholar Athlete earning a spot on the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll.
After graduating from SEMO in 2010, Linnea moved to St. Louis. She worked as a personal trainer at a large chain fitness center. During that time she began studying at Goldfarb School of Nursing, Barnes Jewish College where she received her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. While training and studying she accepted a part-time position with Physician’s Choice Wellness as a clinical assistant and phlebotomist.
When Linnea graduated from nursing school she was offered a job with Cardinal Glennon Sportscare as an Outreach Liason. As a SportsCare representative she partnered with different sports teams within the community to provide them with an injury prevention and wellness program.
Since moving to St. Louis, Linnea began training and competing in half marathons on a regular basis. So far she has completed a total of seven with two more on the books for 2015.
When she is not spending time at NutriFormance or training for her next Marathon, she enjoys watching Cardinal’s baseball, karaoke, and attending concerts. Another fun fact, ask her to solve a Rubik’s cube! She can finish the puzzle in under five minutes.
