Nancy Shaw - Owner of TN Fitness Spa

Nancy Shaw - Owner of Tennessee Fitness Spa

My hometown is mid-city Chicago. Growing up, I enjoyed the great museums and the city’s many attractions. I met my husband, Joe, in Alaska, where we lived for twenty years and raised our family. I taught school and worked in our family businesses. Our Alaskan experience and world travels resulted in a rich life of adventure. After purchasing the Natural Bridge property, Joe and I (and others) threw ourselves into creating a special place for fitness and lifestyle changes.  Twenty-five years of welcoming guests to the Spa and providing a caring, rejuvenating environment makes me very proud.

Rachel Miller - General Manager

Rachel Miller

General Manager

I am originally from Juneau, Alaska and spent several years of my youth in Pensacola, Florida. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel with my family and gain an appreciation for other cultures. I attended the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and earned a degree in Russian Language and World Business. As you can see, I am only putting to use the business aspect of my education (not much Russian used in Wayne County)!  I love my job at TFS, and it feels like one big family with all the wonderful staff and guests with whom to share this beautiful place. I live close to the Spa with my husband, Barry, and our children.

Kimi Kelley - Fitness Director

Kimi Sue Kelley

Fitness Director

I have always been an active person. I love the outdoors, horseback riding, hiking, and canoeing. I started lifting weights in 1992 and fell in love with the muscle burn. I began at TFS in 2001 as a walk leader and weight room attendant. The next year I decided I wanted to teach aerobics and earned my group fitness certification in 2002. I am also certified in personal training, water aerobics, and Pilates. My passion is helping people change their lives to become fit and healthy and I love my job at Tennessee Fitness Spa!

Dietary Manager

I have the pleasure of serving as the Dietary Manager of Tennessee Fitness Spa since 1999. My job gives me the opportunity to assist our guests with their various dietary issues ranging from food allergies, diabetes, and Crohn’s Disease. With a degree in Fitness and Nutrition, plus cooking, catering, and special nutrition classes, I have obtained the knowledge that enables me to develop a dietary plan that helps our guests lose weight and create a healthier you in the process. It is a joy to be part of a wonderful team here at TFS, and I hope to continue for a long time.

Grounds Beautification

After military service, I moved from Chattanooga to Middle Tennessee, relocating in a remote area of Wayne County. I had no electricity for ten years, in which time I built my house, educated my children at home, grew my food in my garden, and learned about plants and human health. Tennessee Fitness Spa gave me an opportunity for employment and a friendly relationship with the guests.

Property Manager of TN Fitness Health Spa and Residential Fitness Camp

Vanessa Hampton

Property Manager

My name is Vanessa Hampton. I was born in Franklin, TN but spent the 1st half of my life in Columbia, TN. I moved to Waynesboro, TN in 1998 where I met my husband, raised my 5 children, 2 nieces, and am now a proud grandmother of 9. I began working for TFS in 2006 as a walk leader and soon after, a weight-room attendant. I enjoy meeting and working with all the guest. It is a feeling I can't explain, knowing you were a part of making a positive change in someone's life. I feel truly blessed to be a part of TFS family and I look forward to my job as Property Manager. I hope to be here for many years to come!
