Welcoming New Staff Member Malorie Polster

It is with great pleasure Active Southern West Virginia would like to announce the addition of Malorie Polster serving as the Outreach Coordinator through AmeriCorps VISTA through June of 2017.


Malorie is from Cleveland, Ohio and graduated from the College of William and Mary with a B.S. in Kinesiology and Health Sciences and a minor in Public Health. She has had a passion for health and wellness for as long as she can remember. 

When she was younger, this passion manifested itself in her love of sports, playing competitive soccer and running track and field. In college, she not only continued to play club soccer and run local races, but also further explored her passions as a group fitness instructor and through her academic coursework. Through her work as a group fitness instructor, Malorie has a great appreciation for the energy, fun, and camaraderie that is gained from group exercise. 

She revels in the opportunity to motivate and inspire people to achieve a satisfying and enjoyable workout and she loves to spread her enthusiasm for health and wellness. Malorie wants to dedicate her life work towards making good health affordable, accessible, and attainable. She strives to ensure the success of a cascade effect where education leads to knowledge and knowledge leads to positive behavior change. 

Malorie understands the importance and power of community collaboration and she cannot wait to join in on all of the great work that has already been done in Southern West Virginia. She is especially excited to explore the plethora of natural beauty and outdoor recreation in West Virginia because taking a walk, run or bike outside is her favorite stress reliever.

Malorie will be working to recruit volunteers, enhancing programs through her fitness education, and following through on growing the Active SWV Kids Run Clubs. She can be reached at [email protected] or (304) 254-8488.
