Kelli and Aaron Van Vuuren

Aaron and Kelli live and work on the family farm/ranch in St. Lawrence, SD with their two daughters, Rosalind and Eloise, with a third child due to arrive at the end of January 2019. Considering the two of them met on the first day of class as freshmen at SDSU, the class being Wellness 101, it's safe to say that health and wellness have been a big part of their relationship. Aaron received his Bachelor's in Science in Health Promotion with minors in Nutrition and Health Science and has worked in personal training, group fitness, and athletic training. Kelli received her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing working in specialties of labor and delivery, med-surg, and ER/Trauma. Together they have been serving in Christian leadership through praise band, Bible camp counselors and speakers, youth group leadership, college ministry team at SDSU, and now as adult Sunday School teachers in their home church of the Community Church of St. Lawrence. Upon learning about the Living Wellness program, they were deeply convicted on their community's and church body's need for help in better health knowledge and practices. With this in mind, as new Living Wellness Facilitators, they are looking forward to helping their friends, family, and peers to grow closer to their Maker while learning to honor and care for their bodies as the temples that our Heavenly Father intended them to be.
