Our Vitalize Team
Our staff is dynamic, intelligent, creative, kind, caring, compassionate,
and committed to making a difference in the lives of our members.
Holly Aardal, Ed.D.
Co-Founder of Island Time Activities (now Vitalize Kitsap).
Holly currently works as a Special Education Supervisor for Clover Park School District. The accessible and inclusive foundation she designed for our VK programming serves us all well to this day.
Dana Willerford, RN, BSN
Dana consults with VK, helping us design and implement pandemic-safe programming that also works for our Members' individual health needs.
While schools were closed during the pandemic, she helped with the vaccine clinics at Member Plus Family Health. Now that schools are open again, she has returned to support the Bainbridge Island School District as a substitute school nurse.
In addition to serving as bookkeeper for Vitalize Kitsap, Jean cares deeply for our VK Members and their families, and serves as a wise sounding board based on her experience as an award-winning paraeducator.
Karen served as BRIDGE Fitness instructor for VK for years and brought much joy and health to all of us. She continues to advise us as we build health, fitness, strength and sportsmanship into our daily programming. We are grateful for the joyful, accessible and inclusive approach to movement and athleticism she helped us build into our VK culture.
