Fitness Consultant Kaye Westlake

Kaye Westlake  -  Fitness Consultant

 

Having grown up in a family business in New Jersey, I learned at a very early age how Customer Service plays an important part to the success of any business. The customer comes first! After battling rheumatoid arthritis and hypothyroidism for 3 years and gaining 60 pounds from the prescription medications, I turned to a personal trainer at Bailey’s, who helped me realize how diet and exercise can play an integral part in a healthier lifestyle. I was and still am amazed how after 6 months I was given the "ok" by my doctor to go off of my meds. I was given the opportunity in 2003 to become part of the Bailey’s Team, and I gladly accepted! I love meeting new people and hearing about their challenges in life. I enjoy sharing my life experiences and finding ways to help others to achieve a healthier lifestyle. I love spending my time off with my family, especially my grandson who is the light of my life!

Through that experience I have discovered that I love it. I hope to one day become an elementary school teacher. I also have a love for acting.
