W.I.T.S. has added another new teacher from the great state of Indiana. We are looking forward to having Cara Alvarez, a tremendous Certified Personal Trainer & health educator, work with the future fitness leaders of tomorrow.
My name is Cara Alvarez. I am originally from Garrett, IN and currently reside in Fort Wayne, IN. I attended the Pennsylvania State University and graduated in 2011 with a B.S. in Kinesiology. In 2015, I earned my M.S. in Exercise Science and Health Promotion from the California University of Pennsylvania.
I have been fortunate enough to take on many different roles in the health and wellness industry. I have experience as an EMT-Advanced and 911 dispatcher for the city of Fort Wayne, a Certified Personal Trainer for Catalyst Fitness, as an OB patient care technician and phlebotomist for Parkview Hospital, and an Adjunct Instructor for Ivy Tech Community College teaching courses such as Anatomy and Physiology, Health & Wellness, and Nutrition.
I enjoy many activities outside of work. I love working out and will be competing in the bikini category with the NPC for my first time this July. I love sports! Penn State and Notre Dame football are life! I love going to the lake with my friends and family. I am also a huge fan of karaoke! I actually own my own sound system and microphone so that I can sing at home (maybe my neighbors don’t appreciate this as much as I do!) All in all, I try to stay active and enjoy life.
I have a passion for teaching and learning. I am always trying to find something new to learn or exciting ways to make connections for my students! I am looking forward to this new opportunity with WITS and can’t wait to get started.
Alvarez will be teaching at the following W.I.T.S. locations in Indiana:
Indiana University -Purdue University Fort Wayne
2101 E. Coliseum Boulevard
Fort Wayne, IN 46805
Registration #: (260) 481-6619
