As the Health and Wellness Coordinator at Evoke Entrada, Linnea educates and inspires staff and students to prioritize their health. She visits the groups in the field area and provides support to staff while running groups for the clients that focus on the mind, body, and spirit. She leads the students through yoga, meditation, exercises, or informational groups that promote body awareness, clearer thinking, and a calm mind. Through these efforts, Linnea strives to introduce healthy habits in a manner that encourages the students to continue these practices years after graduating Evoke Entrada.
Linnea received her Bachelor of Sciences degree in Exercise Science from Truman State University, where she was a varsity athlete for three years on the Women’s Basketball Team. She began working with Evoke Entrada in May of 2016 as a Field Instructor, and eventually became a Senior Level Field Instructor. Linnea completed a 9-month, 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, she is a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, and a Certified Exercise Physiologist through the American College of Sports Medicine. In 2018 Linnea was honored with the Jumping Mouse Award at the Outdoor Behavioral Health Council’s Wilderness Therapy Symposium for outstanding performance in the field.
Linnea grew up in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. She shared experiences camping, kayaking, fishing, and adventuring throughout the country with her family. Linnea fell in love with horses and soon wrapped her parents into the horse-riding community along with her. Many evenings included sunset rides with her dad and cleaning the horse barn. Sports were also a large part of Linnea’s life, and basketball became a major passion for her. Overall, the experiences Linnea had growing up beside her parents and three brothers shaped much of who she is today.
In her free time, Linnea enjoys adventuring with her dog, chatting with her family, coaching CrossFit classes, training her personal fitness clients, reading, and learning new things. She also loves keeping up with her garden and caring for her house plants, all of which have their own unique name.
