Jolene D.

Powerhouse Jolene D, is a wonderfully-Iowa straight shooter: down to earth, with a heart of gold, good common sense, and no bones about all things done right.

The oldest of six, Jolene is very close with her family. Her parents have been married for a whooping six decades. She herself is blessed with four children, their spouses, a dozen grand kids and a first great grandchild.

You guess her age - it’s just not possible...! Graduating from Body Wisdom only in the summer of 2015 Jolene finally realized her long-held dream of becoming a professional massage therapist, which she had kept since the young age of twelve!

Initially Jolene had attended SWICC in Creston Iowa gaining her computer science certificate in 1982, prior to working at a care center as a CNA/CMA in southern Iowa for four years, where she also trained other CNA/CMA staff. For 2 years she trained law enforcement personnel at Camp Dodge, Iowa. She also holds an Administrative Assistant Associate's Degree from DMACC.

After temporarily helping out at Revenue & Finance during the 1986/87 tax seasons, Jolene was hired at the Iowa Department of Transportation, from where she officially retired 31 years later, on December 27, 2018.

She claims her passions to be: “my family, friends, and massage!”, while Jolene's hobbies include international travels with one of her sisters, driving all over America to visit family, camping, and maintaining a photo/journal history of family/friends.

Being so lucky to sign Jolene on with our team, she responded: “I’m excited about my adventure with my Body Wisdom family!” … so are we.
