Villa St. Benedict

Exercise Coordinator

June - August 2019 • Lisle, IL

What I liked

My experience as an exercise coordinator gave me more confidence in myself instructing exercise classes. It also strengthened my efforts in team building.

What I wish was different

I tried to get to know my members better by asking insightful and meaningful questions. Because there were so many members it was hard to get to know each one on a personal level. If I had been given a bit more time at this internship, I could have made better connections with my members.


Working with these residents gave me more confidence in communicating with older adults. If someone is not familiar or confident in this type of environment with older adults, I would definitely recommend giving it a try!
