Hello from Kelly, your new Concordia Plans Health and Wellness Educator

by Kelly Menke, Concordia Plans Health and Wellness Educator

As you may know, I started here at Concordia Plans in mid-May 2022. I’m LOVING my new role and am extremely excited about getting to know and work with all of you. I have heard all about how passionate you are and the immense value you bring to your organizations. 

A little bit about me… 

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Health Education with a Minor in Healthcare Administration and a Master of Science in Public Health. In addition, I am a Certified Health Education Specialist. For a little over 10 years, I was also a Certified Personal Trainer. My passion is promoting and supporting healthy behaviors that are rooted in the Word of God. I have experience with diabetes prevention, group and individual health coaching, and community outreach. 

Currently, my favorite songs are: 

“In Jesus’ Name” by Katy Nichole; “The Commission” by CAIN and “LION” by Elevation Worship. 

I also enjoy weight training, reading and spending time with my family. I’m blessed to be married to my best friend for the past 20 years, have three amazing children (19, 16 and 11), and two big dogs. After more than 20 years in the military, we’re happy to be home in Missouri with the rest of our family. 

As we prepare for the last quarter of 2022 and welcoming 2023, updates to previous webinars and presentations as well as other resources are in the works, and we want to hear from you, Wellness Champions! What topics are important to your organization? How can we support you as you support others?


Included, you will find helpful information to forward to your organizations that will support establishing healthy routines, as recommended by some of our very own PROS. Check it out! And please feel free to reach out with any questions/comments - [email protected]
