Exercise Science student at UW-Superior interns abroad

Kerry Mayhew, a senior majoring in Exercise Science, is currently completing her internship experience in London, England. 

She is working with Personal Touch Fitness, a company who provides worksite wellness programs to corporations throughout the U.K. Their services range from consultation to implementation and staffing of worksite wellness programs.  Kerry will have the opportunity to experience all aspects of this company including marketing, program planning, and implementation. 

This is a great opportunity for Kerry as it will expose her to a growing field in both the U.S. and the U.K.  Studies have confirmed that companies who provide wellness programs to employees have increased employee morale, decreased worksite injuries and sick time used, as well as reduced health care costs.

Kerry will be sharing intern duties with another student from UW-Stevens Point.  Her supervisor will be Ms. Chris Andrews, a former student of Dr. William Simpson while he was a faculty member at UW-Stevens Point. She founded the company 14 years ago and continues to grow and innovate services.

Kerry is originally from Littleton, CO.  She transferred to UW-Superior as a sophomore from the University of Maine.  She played three years on the Women's Ice Hockey team and has been actively involved as a student within the Health and Human Performance Department. Kerry has frequently been named to the Dean's List and upon completion of her internship she will be looking towards graduate school opportunities.
