Emily Sawlaw
I have been with Indian Acres for the last 5 years, but I have always done water fitness! My favorite food is any kind of dessert. The biggest parts of my life are my family and faith. We have a dog Poppy and our new kitten, Teddy. They love each other and we love them! We take walks, hikes, and Poppy loves to play ball. If I could visit anywhere it would be Scotland and Italy. Lauren asked me what my favorite water aerobics move is, and the honest answer is all of them! I love them all for the different effects on the muscles of the body. Water aerobics gets you the sun and resistance with no impact on the joints! When I am not at Indian Acres, you can find me in Piatt County working as Dispatch.
