MANDY TURNER

Mandy is a Knoxville native and a graduate of the University of Tennessee. After years of battling a negative mentality about her weight and an unhealthy relationship with food, Mandy came to a Beauty Hunters class and was instantly hooked. Before long she was attending 3-4 classes a week and beginning the healing process with her body and with the way she related to other women. “I am an only child and was never part of a team growing up,so the sisterhood that I found in Beauty Hunters was really empowering. I am so grateful for the encouragement given by all the amazing women here.” Mandy’s newfound passion quickly sparked a leap of faith as she chose to pursue her personal training certification in preparation for Koa’s arrival and Sarah’s maternity leave. “After everything Beauty Hunters has given to me, I feel like the least I can do is give back by using my time to help this amazing organization continue to grow and change lives.” Mandy now leads both 6:00am classes held on Monday and Friday mornings.
