The University of Wisconsin Health and Wellness Management program continued its webinar series in a session hosted by Emily Moenck, a successful health and wellness professional. She offered insight and advice on how to make the most of a wellness career. This is the first of three blogs recapping her webinar.
Emily Moenck is the health and wellness manager at Aprilaire, a thriving, innovative air quality company based in Madison, Wis. Each day, she looks forward to planning, developing, implementing, and evaluating health promotion strategies and programs. As a high-level wellness professional, Emily also oversees the employee wellness communications and marketing strategy, manages the monetary incentives tied to the programs, and coordinates the annual biometrics screening and evaluation. The responsibilities within her job description are impressive—but she didn’t start out at the helm.
In the April 2016 UW Health and Wellness Management webinar, Emily walked a group of students and prospective students down her career path, from her college and fledgling internship experience all the way to her current success. She offered stories from each step and finished with tips and advice amassed from her years of experience.
