Melissa Makey has been with Union Bank & Trust for a year. As the Wellness Coordinator, she provides great understanding in all aspects of wellness for her associates. Coming on board in such a short amount of time, there has been much accomplished. With her fitness background, she started a UBT Boot Camp for all employees, and conducts personal consultations to those who would like guidance. Also, with the implementation of Wellness Standards, she has taken on some of the responsibilities of making sure health benefits are clearly educated and understood by all employees. She strives to help employees achieve personal goals, and continues to find new and inspirational ideas to keep associates proactive with the Wellness Program.
Prior to joining Union Bank & Trust, Melissa worked at Victory Pilates as a Certified Pilates Instructor. At Victory, she conducted many classes, workshops, and postural analysis. Not only did she design workout programs for youth involvement, individual and group clients, but a lot of focus was on assisting in designing incentive programs for clients, and creating promotions for the business.
Melissa has a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science, with a minor in Health Promotion, and an Endorsement in Coaching, from Concordia University in Seward, Neb. While at Concordia, she was a member of the Women’s Basketball team and was awarded NAIA All-American for two years in a row. Her leadership and motivation helped the team to the final eight teams in the NAIA National Championship Tournament for two straight years.
Her and her husband, Casey, also a strong advocate in Health Education, live in Seward, Nebraska.
