Errah Wheel, Active Older Adult Engagement Director
work: 920.230.8439
My first experience with the YMCA was as an Active Older Adult instructor for the Janesville Y. I taught an off-site class at the Milton Senior Center while I was a student at UW-Whitewater. After graduating from UW-Whitewater with a degree in Physical Education, I started my Y career at the Milwaukee YMCA as a Fitness and Program Coordinator. During my time working for the Milwaukee Y, I developed an appreciation for the impact the Y has on the community it serves and my commitment to the Y began.

When my family relocated to the Fox Cities, I stayed at home to raise my son and daughter but continued to work part time at the YMCA of the Fox Cities. My passion for working with seniors became my focus through exercise instruction at the Fox West Y. I have been working with seniors at the Oshkosh Y for about 5 years as a fitness instructor and a LIVESTRONG at the YMCA Coach.

I am very excited to continue my Y journey as the  Active Older Adult Engagement Director!

When not working, you might find me walking my dog Maggie, volunteering at my church in Appleton alongside my husband, cooking homemade meals for my family, or driving my children to one of their many activities.
